Shiwang’andu Area Member of Parliament Stephen Kampyongo says the Patriotic Front (PF) says the party is becoming stronger and popular in most parts of the country.
Speaking at Makungwa school grounds yesterday during his continued tour of the constituency, Mr Kampyongo said people from opposition political parties are joining the ruling party in great numbers because the ruling party is becoming more attractive saying it will be a party to reckon with in 2021.
He says having former PF members rejoining the party, is an indication that the party is becoming more attractive and stronger each day.
He also added that the PF government is committed to uplifting the lives of every Zambian despite their political affiliation and geographical location.
And Mr Kampyongo has said that the PF has delivered and will continue to deliver developmental progress in Muchinga province from the time it was divided from Northern Province in 2011.
He said that from the time Muchinga Province was created, Chinsali which is the provincial headquarters, has recorded massive development with modern infrastructure being constructed, especially in the education sector.
Mr Kampyongo who is also Minister of Home Affairs said that creation of another constituency during the delimitation of wards and constituencies, currently underway ahead of 2021 general elections, will accelerate development in the area.
Meanwhile, Frank Musukwa who stood on the UPND ticket for Kulamwele ward in the 2016 general elections, has defected to the PF.
Mr Musukwa who was officially welcomed by Mr Kampyongo, said the PF has delivered and that he is willing to assist in that developmental agenda.
Mr. Kampyongo is on tour of his constituency to check on developmental projects in the region.
