Vice President Inonge Wina has implored people in Solwezi West constituency to elect a member of parliament who can freely work with government.
Ms Wina said President Edgar Lungu has been frequenting North-western province because he wants development to trickle down to the area that has lagged behind for a long time.
She said to show that government cares for people in Solwezi West constituency, President Lungu declared the area as Kalumbila district.
Ms Wina said although some people have ill feelings about the declaration of the new districts, the benefit of it is that government will be compelled to take development to an area declared as district.
She said government will construct a new hospital, roads, police post, post office and other infrastructure befitting a district.
Ms Wina said this at Muyashi primary school ground in the newly created Kalumbila district when she addressed a public rally to drum up support for Patriotic Front candidate, Martin Mbaya in the forthcoming September 24 parliamentary by-elections.
She advised people to ignore the cheap political talk from opposition political parties who claim to be capable of fostering development from their pockets.
Meanwhile, Ms Wina advised traditional leaders against practicing partisan politics because doing so can divide subjects instead of uniting them.
The Vice President also implored parents not to marry off their girl children at a tender age but allow them continue in school and obtain an education that can open their opportunities in life.
And The people of Kalumbila District say they want to vote for someone who will help develop Solwezi West constituency.
The residents of Manyama told ZNBC that they are ready to vote in the forthcoming Parliamentary by election slated for this Thursday.
One of the residents Rosten Thole said that people in the area want a person who will help in the creation of jobs for young people.
Mr. Thole said a number of people have lost jobs and young people are looking forward to someone who will give them their jobs back.
And Jonathan Kazembe who is a taxi driver said the people of Solwezi-West want someone who will help in the development of infrastructure especially in the education and health.
And Mathew Sakala is happy that development has started flowing to the area and the person who will be elected Member of Parliament should continue with it.
