SENIOR Chief Mushota of Kawambwa district is confident that President Sata will succeed to transform Zambia into a better country because he has never failed in his endeavours.
And PF secretary-general Wynter Kabimba has warned that the party will collapse if members continue fighting among themselves.
“I have personally known President Sata for a long time. He does not fail and as far as we are concerned here, President Sata has in the two years already fulfilled a lot of what he promised when he was in the opposition,” Senior Chief Mushota said.
The traditional leader was speaking here on Sunday when Patriotic Front (PF) secretary-general Wynter Kabimba paid a courtesy call at his palace.
Mr Kabimba was accompanied by Luapula Province minister Benson Kapaya, Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Nickson Chilangwa and Pambashe Member of Parliament Ronald Chitotela.
Senior Chief Mushota said his subjects are happy that Government has started fulfilling its promises of building a road and school in the area.
Senior Chief Mushota also appealed to Mr Kabimba to lobby Government on his behalf to build a clinic in the area.
The chief also said some ministers are letting President Sata down by not performing to people’s expectations
“His Excellence relies on you his ministers but some are a letdown. And when you fail to deliver, people direct their anger at President Sata,” Senior Chief Mushota said.
And Mr Kabimba said the PF is in “overdrive” to deliver development to the people of Zambia
“We (PF) want development and good life to be a reality. Government is only government if it serves the needs of the people,” Mr Kabimba said.
He said President Sata has embarked on building palaces countrywide because he wants traditional leaders to live well.
“I have no doubt whatsoever that development is coming to this country. We want Zambians to be happy because they voted for the PF,” Mr Kabimba said.
He said the PF is interested to know the challenges and anxieties that people are facing.
“Tell us your challenges, don’t just praise us. We want to know where we are going wrong so that we can make amends,” Mr Kabimba said
He said Zambia would have been a better country if Mr Sata was elected President 20 years ago.
Meanwhile, Mr Kabimba says President Sata values the institution of marriage.
Mr Kabimba said his marriage was graced by President Sata when he was Governor of Lusaka.
“The institution of marriage makes government strong and as PF, we want to see strong family ties,” he said.
Mr Kabimba, who is also Minister of Justice, said this here on Sunday night when he officiated at a wedding ceremony.
Mr Kabimba said marriage is a sacred institution which Zambians must hold in high esteem.
.And Mr Kabimba said the PF will die if members continue fighting among themselves
Mr Kabimba said the number one enemy of the PF is its own members.
He was speaking in Mansa yesterday when he addressed PF members.
Mr Kabimba said it is lies that fuel disputes in the party and warned that the culture of lies and infighting can destroy the party.
“Very soon, you will hear some senior members saying I was here (in Luapula) to campaign for the presidency. Lies must stop in PF,” Mr Kabimba said.
Mr Kabimba said he has no alternative political party and his fate is tied to PF.
“If PF loses in 2016, we are all finished. UPND will not accept you. As for me, I will just form a church,” he said jokingly.
And Mr Kabimba thanked the people of Luapula Province for unwaveringly supporting President Sata.
