The Patriotic Front Secretary General Hon Davies Mwila has assured it will do all it can to make democracy and good governance thrive in Zambia. Responding to a media query, the PF Secretary General has also said that the ruling party believes in building a strong, united and prosperous Zambia where all citizens can find opportunities to better their lives.
“Patriotic Front is committed to good governance and constitutional democracy, which includes upholding the rule of law, separation of powers, respect for human rights, free and fair elections as well as political stability. We have demonstrated that accountability and transparency matters in fulfilling our people-given mandate. We have demonstrated commitment to promotion of dialogue and peaceful co-existence of political parties. This is because from our founding, we have held the strong belief that parties should engage in robust and healthy political discourse and not acrimonious altercation devoid of substance”, stated Hon Mwila.
“Democracy, in our understanding, is not about creating imaginary enemies. It is not about creating adversaries out of the political space. To the contrary, the democracy PF believes in emphasizes the ‘WE’, signifying our commitment to uniting the nation beyond any divide, tribal, religious or political. We must turn this season into a new chapter where politics are based on superiority of ideas presented in respective manifestos. We cannot allow empty political polemics 53 years after our Independence”, he said.
“We are aware that those who seek political office have resolved to work against the development being rolled out by our party. They will stop at nothing in giving all upcoming development projects a bad name. This is because they are aware that PF’s 2021 slogan will be ‘SONTA EPOWABOMBA’, bringing evidential proof to Zambians in line with our 2016-2021 election manifesto. We ask Zambians to evaluate the agenda by those who have become enemies of development. These are the same ones who said Zambians would not eat roads, but today Zambians are benefitting from the unprecedented good road infrastructure in all the Provinces without exception,” said Hon Mwila.
The PF Secretary General has assured that the ruling Party will not waiver in fulfilling the rich promises contained in its manifesto because it is resolved to present to the Zambian electorate not a mirage but accurate depiction of what fulfilled election assurances can look like.
