HH Statement – Zambia United Tour goes to Luapula Province
Today the Zambia United tour travelled to Mansa. Thank you to all those who came out to meet me at the airport. I have pledged to you that a vote for me will be a vote for a united Zambia and economic development.
I enjoyed walking around at Senama Market and thank you to Yengeni radio for hosting me. The message I delivered during my visit was that the potential and opportunity for us to achieve great things is there. Working together we can unlock this potential.
The massive water bodies in the region are good for rice, as well as the fishing industry. At the same time the strategic location near the DR Congo border means that we have a market for export and business opportunity right on our doorstep.
Not only must Government support farmers properly so they can grow more at a lower price, but it can also support and help guide the development of partner industries, which create more business locally and add value to our raw products. For example, where there is so much fishing a canning industry could be nurtured.
Twatasha mukwayi Luapula people for your warm welcome.
