Acting Republican President, Guy Scott says government remains committed to uplift the economic face of Kabwe town to its previous standards.
Dr Scott says it is in this vein that government has started the process of recapitalising the defunct Mulungushi Textiles in order to create more jobs for the people of Central Province headquarters.
He said it is sad that the textile industry in the once mining town of Kabwe has remained docile for a long time thereby depriving the residents of Kabwe of economic benefits for their social being.
The acting Republican President says government recapit6alised the Zambia Railways Limited (ZRL) to symbolise its commitment to uplift the living standards of the people of Kabwe and surrounding towns.
He said this when he featured on a special programme on KNC Radio in Kabwe today.
Dr Scott is in Kabwe to drum up support for the Patriotic Front (PF) presidential candidate for the January 20, 2015 Presidential by election, Edgar Lungu.
And Dr Scott has assured investors that their investment in the country is safe considering the vast peaceful elections the country has conducted since 1964.
He further called on investors to be inspired by the good democratic practices that Zambia has continued to enjoy for the last 50 years.
Meanwhile, PF Presidential candidate, Edgar Lungu, has assured the people that he will continue with the legacy and vision of late Republican President, Michael sata, once elected in the January 20, 2015 Presidential by election.
Mr Lungu said Zambians still have confidence in the PF and further urged electorates to vote for the ruling party in order to benefit from its vast developmental agenda it has for the country.
And Patriotic front President Edgar Lungu has accused UPND President Hakainde Hichilema of allegedly practising indecent politics.
Addressing a rally in Kabwe this afternoon, Mr. Lungu says it is unacceptable for the UPND to continue using the promises that the PF are making to the people of Zambia.
Mr. Lungu noted that almost all the promises that Mr. Hichilema is making have been an initiative of the PF.
Mr. Lungu has also promised more jobs to the people of Kabwe by pumping more money in the Zambia Railways Limited and through the operationalization of Mulungushi Textiles citing that the agreement has already been signed and will soon start operating.
He said that government also has plans to put up Multi Facility Economic Zones in Kabwe adding that Kabwe has a huge potential to grow the economy.
Mr. Lungu has urged Zambians not to allow other selfish political leaders to experiment with their lives saying there is need to keep the PF in government for continuity.
And Mr. Lungu says his government will put the plight of farmers on the top of the agenda saying the growth of the country’s economy lies in their hands.
Speaking at the same rally, Acting President Guy Scott says there is only one Patriotic Front.
Dr. Scott says the differences in the party are gone citing that the PF will continue with Late President Sata’s legacy.Rally
He has encouraged the people to vote for Edgar Lungu for continuity.
Former vice president Lupando Mwape, Pf secretary General Davies Chama, Information Minister Joseph Katema, Lusaka mayor Mulenga Sata, Education Minister John Phiri, Kasama MP Geoffrey Mwamba, Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili among others were present at the rally.
