President Edgar Lungu has charged that the PF government will prioritise development in areas where it will amass good votes if re-elected into office.
President Lungu said the party has attempted to take development to all areas of Zambia in its first term on office but that this has disadvantaged some areas where the party is popular.
He said in his four and half years in power, the party has initiated development even in areas where it lost because it believes in the spirit off One Zambia, One Nation.
President Lungu was speaking on Tuesday when he addressed a rally in Mungwi where he was drumming up support for PF Malole Constituency candidate Christopher Yaluma and councillors standing on the PF ticker.
“In all fairness, we have to revisit that policy and now focus on areas where we are supported. We should first develop Mungwi and Northern Province because you people have supported us through out. It is a pity that you have not benefitted from your support for the PF but now this has to change,” Mr Lungu said.
He promised that he will personally ensure that the development of Mungwi becomes a top priority if he is re-elected in next month’s elections.
And addressing a second rally at President’s Park in Kasama Central, President Lungu promised to build a modern Stadium and a University in Kasama
President Lungu also promised that Kasama General Hospital will undergo massive renovations and upgrade if he is re-elected into office.
He also urged the residents of Kasama Central to vote for PF Parliamentary candidate Kelvin Sampa because he has been trying to provide leadership for the people of Kasama for a long time.
President Lungu also took a swipe at former Kasama Central MP Geoffrey Mwamba who is also UPND presidential running mate.
He said Mr Mwamba is only interesting in getting to power in order to accumulate personal wealth.
President Lungu said Mr Mwamba is supporting the UPND because has an ambition of becoming Republican President.
He said Mr Mwamba is plotting to take over the presidency of the UPND from Mr Hichilema if he loses the August elections.
President Lungu claimed that Mr Mwaba refused from Michael Sata’s administration because the late President Sata knew and confronted him about it.
