Zambian Vision Foundation has called on all Zambians to unite and selflessly support President Micheal Sata in the fight against corruption if Zambia is to see accelerated sustained economic growth and social development.
Chilufya Luchembe, who is the Foundation President, told ZANIS in a press statement on June 6th that the fight against corruption is beyond partisan politics, gender, creed or any social grouping but a noble moral fight.
The foundation has thanked President Sata and the PF government for having declared a zero tolerance against corruption.
He said corruption in Zambia has become a social cancer over the years and impedes any meaningful development agenda.
Mr Luchembe said corruption is not a fight that can be won by the PF government alone but that it is a battle that all well meaning Zambians and stakeholders should unreservedly support and participate in.
He observed that apart from the fight against corruption strategic policy measures must be put in place in order to transform the mindsets and attitudes especially in young people in order to raise a corrupt free young generation.
He said in an effort to supplement governments effort towards the fight against corruption the foundation has come up with a strategic plan to reach 78 000 young people by the year 2023 in a project called VISUALISE BIG.
Mr Luchembe further explained that over the years corruption has grown its tentacles to every fibre of society.
Meanwhile, the foundation has encouraged the Zambia National Soccer team to die a little for mother Zambia as they take on Lesotho on Saturday.
The Foundation President, Chilufya Luchembe, said the boys should go an extra mile and put in their best to come out with a positive result that usually unites the nation and bring joy to everyone.
The foundation has since wished the Chipolopolo boys God’s favour and a positive result in a world cup qualifier tie against Lesotho.
