Human Rights Activist, Ngande Mwanajiti, says President Edgar Lungu’s initiative to come up with financial grants to support marketeers across the country is a move in the right direction.
Mr Mwanajiti says marketeers in the country have been facing a lot of problems in terms of accessing loans for their businesses due to lack of collateral.
He said this in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka yesterday adding that the move should be supported by all the marketeers and well-meaning Zambians.
Mr Mwanajiti also urged marketers to put to good use the loans in order to grow their businesses for the benefit of their families.
And Mr Mwanajiti has disclosed that he has no political ambition to contest as Member of Parliament in this year’s elections.
He said the right time will come for him to vie for a political seat because he has every right to do so as a Zambian citizen.
Mr Mwanajiti said as a strong supporter of the Patriotic Front (PF) he will remain committed to campaigning for President Edgar Lungu during this year’s elections so that he could continue developing the nation for the well -being of Zambians.
