The National Traders and Marketeers Association of Zambia (NATMAZ) has endorsed Patriotic Front (PF) candidate Edgar Lungu as their candidate in the January 20, Presidential elections.
NATMAZ National President Goodson Kapota said the association wants to work with a person who will carry the vision of the late President Michael Sata of empowering marketeers and traders in the country.
He told media in an interview in Ndola yesterday that Mr. Lungu is the only candidate who has shown that he has a passion for the less privileged in society.
Mr. Kapota further called on Mr. Lungu to ensure that government empowerment programmes benefit the less privileged particularly women and the vulnerable children.
He further commended government for supporting the majority Zambians particularly those in the informal sector with loans and other social amenities.
