COPPERBELT Patriotic Front chairperson Rebby Chanda says his party is on the right track and is working hard to deliver on its campaign promises.
Commenting on MMD presidential aspirant Felix Mutati's statement during a card renewal exercise in Ndola last weekend that there was total confusion in the country's economy because the PF had failed to deliver the development it had promised, Chanda said the ruling party knew what it was doing.
Chanda said only a blind person could say that the country's economy was in total confusion or that the PF government had failed to deliver the development it promised Zambians.
"One thing that people should know is that what the PF government is doing is on course. We are trying all means to make sure that the youths on the Copperbelt are empowered. We are not just sitting down…we know what we are doing. We want to make sure that the youths have something to do but it's one step at a time," he said.
Chanda said the PF on the Copperbelt had started by ensuring that the youths registered their companies with Patents and Companies Registration Agency (PACRA).
He said the PF's aim was to remove all the youths from the streets and make sure that they have something to do.
"We cannot just do everything at the same time. It is one step at a time because we already know what we are doing. All the youths that are on the streets will be removed and given something to do," he said.
"There are some who are on the streets and have never even gone to school, so we will take them to national camps where they will be taught some skills like carpentry and joinery, sewing, block making, tie and dye and other skills that can be of help to our youths."
Chanda said the PF government was not going to relax but would work hard and deliver the developmental promises made to the Zambians.
He said it was evident the PF was in the right direction.
"We are in the right track and we are working very hard to ensure that the promises made are fulfilled," said Chanda.
