—Acting Republican President, Guy Scott says government remains committed to uplift the economic face of Kabwe town to its previous standards.


Dr Scott says it is in this vein that government has started the process of recapitalising the defunct Mulungushi Textiles in order to create more jobs for the people of Central Province headquarters.


He said it is sad that the textile industry in the once mining town of Kabwe has remained docile for a long time thereby depriving the residents of Kabwe of economic benefits for their social being.

The acting Republican President says government recapit6alised the Zambia Railways Limited (ZRL) to symbolise its commitment to uplift the living standards of the people of Kabwe and surrounding towns.

He said this when he featured on a special programme on KNC Radio in Kabwe today.

Dr Scott is in Kabwe to drum up support for the Patriotic Front (PF) presidential candidate for the January 20, 2015 Presidential by election, Edgar Lungu.

And Dr Scott has assured investors that their investment in the country is safe considering the vast peaceful elections the country has conducted since 1964.

He further called on investors to be inspired by the good democratic practices that Zambia has continued to enjoy for the last 50 years.

Meanwhile, PF Presidential candidate, Edgar Lungu, has assured the people that he will continue with the legacy and vision of late Republican President, Michael sata, once elected in the January 20, 2015 Presidential by election.

Mr Lungu said Zambians still have confidence in the PF and further urged electorates to vote for the ruling party in order to benefit from its vast developmental agenda it has for the country.
