Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba has assured investors and the diplomatic community that the country is stable and peaceful.



Mr Kalaba urged diplomats and foreign investors not to worry about their investments and political stability of the country ahead of the January 20, 2015 polls.



He reiterated that the country has always been peaceful and will remain peaceful during and after the campaigns and elections.



Mr Kalaba was speaking at a PF campaign rally in Mandevu constituency in Lusaka to canvass support for Party President Edgar Lungu in the January 20, 2015 presidential by-elections.



And Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili echoed the sentiments of Mr Kalaba saying that the country would not plunge into chaos.



Mr Kambwili urged Zambians not to change government as doing so will be a recipe for political instability and loss of US$87 billion worth of investments that the PF administration has managed to bring into the country.



 The Minister said Zambia under the PF remains a favourable investment destination and urged voters to ensure that PF continues in government to foster on-going job and wealth creation programmes across the country.




Mr Kambwili said the PF is committed to empowering the youths and had recently increased allocation to the Youth Fund from K4 million under the MMD regime to K29 million.



He  said PF President Edgar Lungu once elected as republican president will ensure continuity of the robust economic development the late President Michael Sata initiated.
