WYNTER Kabimba says MMD was a rotten government working against its citizens. Kabimba, who attended a church service at St James United Church of Zambia (UCZ) congregation in Luangwa yesterday, said MMD was only serving the interests of a few individuals.

"The MMD government was only serving a small clique of politicians against the people. Under PF, we will restore the dignity of Zambians. We can't continue with the MMD's governance style where some people were more Zambian while others were second-class citizens in their own country. We ought to restore our dignity not through political rhetoric but through development of all districts," he said.

Kabimba said government had shown its commitment to upgrading the country through the selfless leadership of President Michael Sata.
He said the PF was developing the country in a holistic way which in turn generated employment.

He said it was unacceptable that life expectancy had reduced to 42 years.

"In other countries, children who are born are expected to live a 100 years when our people are dying at 42 years. This is scandalous. We need to support his Excellency the President so that Zambia is back on track to compete with other countries. We are the only country that's not suffering from food deficit because of the hard-working people of Zambia," he said.

Kabimba said it was the duty of Africa to feed the continent.
He said it was the duty of Zambia to promote Pan-Africanism.

"We need to promote Pan Africanism so that we stand on our own, so that we stand against things that go wrong and stand against the threat to regional security," he said.

Kabimba said people of Luangwa should vote for a selfless leader.
He said it was unfair that people were served by leaders that turned against them.

He said the PF would give people of Luangwa a good candidate.
The Feira by-election that was caused by the resignation of MMD's Patrick Ngoma to join PF is slated for June 28.

Meanwhile, Luangwa district commissioner Eunie Mumba complained of lack of transport in most government departments.

Mumba said patients had to be referred to the nearest clinic that was 60 kilometres.

"Instead of the 40 officers as per establishment, Zambia Police has 20 officers and accommodation is critical. We don't have female holding cells," said Mumba.
