Ms Wina was speaking yesterday during a campaign rally at Mukandakunda ground in Zambezi district.
“You have been voting for the opposition who are not able to associate with government for you to fully benefit from developmental projects, but President Lungu has not discriminated in taking development to all the people,” the vice president said.

“We are here to solicit your vote because it is important for the country to move from stagnation to better. You give President Lungu a candidate who will be able to work to deliver development” Ms Wina said
The vice president urged the people to vote for Brigadier general Kenneth Kankiza (retired), the PF candidate in the August 11 elections so that he can work with government to address their needs.
Ms Wina who also encouraged the people to vote YES in the upcoming referendum said that people agreeing to amend the bill of rights will constitutionally compel the PF administration to provide services to the people such as water, sanitation, health services and education.

And PF Zambezi East aspiring candidate Brigadier general Kankiza asked the people to vote for him, President Lungu and the ruling party in next month’s election because he will be able to address their challenges.
