Sata for 2016, says Chingola PF

President Sata

CHINGOLA Constituency has proposed President Sata as the Patriotic Front (PF)’s presidential candidate for the 2016 general elections.
Constituency vice-chairman Felix Mulenga said Chingola is among other constituencies and districts across the country that have proposed Mr Sata as the candidate for the 2016 elections.
Mr Mulenga said: “In this regard, we still feel that we should as well take this opportunity to propose to the nation and to all ardent supporters of the PF that President Sata be considered as presidential candidate for 2016 general elections”.
This is according to resolutions by the constituency in a statement made available to the Daily Mail in Chingola yesterday.
Mr Mulenga said PF was founded in Chingola, hence the need to propose Mr Sata as the PF candidate for 2016.
Mr Mulenga said the PF government has posted remarkable achievements under the leadership of President Sata.
He said among notable achievements Mr Sata has scored are repossession of Zamtel, revocation of Zambia Railways concession, retention of the abuse of the office of authority clause and creation of new districts.
The constituency also lauded the President for embarking on massive infrastructure development and creating jobs.
Mr Mulenga said Mr Sata has clearly demonstrated political will to drive the economic agenda of the country to greater heights by opening new industries.
“The Link Zambia 8000 road project initiated by His Excellency Mr Michael Chilufya Sata is one major project which should be supported and appreciated by all citizens of Zambia regardless of their political affiliation,” he said.
Mr Mulenga said the Link Zambia 8000 project has helped create employment for Zambians.
He said the construction of 650 health posts across the country is a cornerstone in providing primary healthcare to all Zambians.
Mr Mulenga said the construction of three universities is a great achievement in the education sector, which will make Zambia compete favourably at international level.
He said the successful hosting of United Nations World Tourism Organisation general assembly in Livingstone has undoubtedly put Zambia on the world map.
