Patriotic Front (PF) Party President Edgar Lungu has pledged to look into the plight of Kawambwa Tea Company and its workers if he is elected Republican President on Tuesday next week .
Mr Lungu made the pledge in Kawambwa yesterday when he addressed a rally at the public square.
The PF Presidential candidate said he was aware of the challenges at Kawambwa Tea Company and the difficulties that its workers were undergoing noting that he would not waste time but attend to them soon after being ushered into office after the January 20 presidential elections.
Mr Lungu said the problems of Kawambwa Tea Company and its workers needed urgent attention hence he would ensure that he attends to them without wasting time after winning the presidential election.
He told a mammoth rally that it was only him from the PF who could solve the problems at the Tea company and not anyone from the opposition.
And Mr Lungu pointed out that he would work on all the developmental programmes that were left by the late President Michael Sata.
Mr Lungu who arrived at the public square around 16:19 hours also assured the people of Kawambwa that it was only the PF that will have continuity of the programmes started by the late Mr Sata.
He appealed to the people of Kawambwa, Pambashe and Mwansabombwe to vote for him in next week’s presidential poll.
Meanwhile, Mr Lungu says the PF was still intact and that there were no confusions among the leaders as alleged by some opposition party leaders.
He said people should ignore remarks by some opposition party leaders that the PF was finished because it was still very strong as all the members were united and working as a team towards winning the 20th January 2015 Presidential election.
And Mr Lungu apologized to the large crowd for not spending enough time at the rally saying this was due to the rains in the area.
He however implored the people of Kawambwa, Pambashe and Mwansabombwe to turn up in large numbers next week on the 20th January, 2015 and vote for him during the presidential election.
Mr Lungu’s entourage at the rally included Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba who is also Bahati Member of Parliament and his counterpart for Chipili Davies Mwila among others.
