Dr. Scott was speaking when he addressed people who welcomed him at the Mongu airport this morning.
And Dr. Scott has urged Zambians to maintain the Patriotic Front (PF) in government by voting for Edgar Lungu.
He cited Mongu-Kalabo road, the Senanga-Sesheke road and the Shang’ombo Bridge as some of the projects which government is undertaking in Western province.
