——Katete District Patriotic Front Chairperson, Joseph Duma Makukula, says the Patriotic Front (PF) party has greater chances of scooping Eastern province during the January 20, 2015 Presidential polls.
Mr Makukula told ZANIS in an interview that his party has proved beyond reasonable doubt its capacity to develop Zambia and uplift the lives of the people.
He boasted that in the three years the PF has been in power, it has done many projects aimed at uplifting living stands of people across the country.
In pointing out some of the major projects undertaken by the Patriotic Front government, Mr Makukula said Katete, despite being an old district, did not have a good water source but today the district has seen the construction of a dam and water treatment plant with various urban and rural roads being worked on.
He said because of this people have no reason to change government but to allow the PF to continue its developmental course.
Commenting on the defection of former Patriotic Front Provincial Chairperson, Lameck Managani, and Former Mkaika Member of Parliament, David Phiri, to the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND), Mr Makukula said the two have done great justice to the PF as they were not a factor in any way.
Mr Makukula lamented that Mr Mangani and Mr Phiri were given a chance by the patriotic Front but failed to work for the people.
He said the two were in politics for personal gain and not serving the people of Zambia.
The PF district chairperson said people should not mind the two as they have proved to be inconsistent and undecided through their acts of changing political parties like clothes.
He noted that it was unfortunate that people like Mr Mangani and Mr Phiri have kept on using people in order to enrich themselves at the expense of voters.
Mr Makukula has since urged people in Katete district to vote for the Patriotic Front Candidate during the January 20 Presidential elections for continued development.
He added that changing government will affect the development that the Patriotic Front (PF) government has embarked on.
Yesterday, Katete Patriotic Front leaders held a meeting to intensify its campaigns ahead of the January, 2015 Presidential polls.
