–Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General, Wynter Kabimba, has advised party members in Eastern Province to unite with government officials to supplement government’s efforts in the delivery of development in the country.
Mr Kabimba made the call when he paid a courtesy call on Eastern Province Minister, Malozo Sichone, in Chipata yesterday.
He noted that there is need for party officials to unite with those in government because the two go side by side.
The PF Secretary General stated that there should be consultation between government and party officials for development to move smoothly considering that party officials are closer to the grassroots.
He stated that the PF is an important vehicle in the delivery of development in the country hence the need for the people working in government to involve party officials in all the government programmes including government functions.
Mr Kabimba, who is also Justice Minister, further said that his coming is aimed at uniting party and government officials so that there is harmony between the two.
He stated that there should always be consultation between the two because President Micheal Sata made it clear on the roles of the party and that of government.
He added that the PF government will continue to fulfil the development agenda as promised in 2010/11 campaigns to distribute evenly the national cake in terms of development because it believes in a unitary and sovereignty of the country.
Mr Kabimba said Movement for Multiparty Democracy President, Nevers Mumba, and United Party for National Development (UPND) Hakainde Hichilema, cannot match the PF politics because they are immature and do not know how the government is run.
And Mr Sichone expressed happiness over the coming of the PF party Secretary General and appealed to him to help the district overcome the infighting within the members.
Mr Sichone noted that it was difficult to work because the two functions will always complain of being side-lined when not invited for functions.
He, however, appreciated in terms of delivery of infrastructure because the province was also enjoying the distribution of projects.
He cited Sinda and Vubwi as some of the districts where roads were being worked on.
