A PARLIAMENTARIAN has implored Zambian youths to remain focused in supporting the Government and not to be swayed by some politicians whose agenda is to frustrate President Edgar Lungu’s agenda to develop the country.
Sioma Independent Member of Parliament (MP) Mbololwa Subulwa cautioned youths to be wary of a growing trend by politicians whose agenda was bent on insulting President Lungu when majority of citizens were benefiting from his commitment to duty.
Meanwhile, the Evangelical Youth Alliance has expressed disappointment over the conduct of Roan and Bahati members of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili and Harry Kalaba, respectively, who have exhibited undesirable behaviour in handling their exit from the Government.
Alliance president Moses Lungu said it was unfortunate that the two politicians had chosen a path of destruction and disrespected the office of the Republican President.
Ms Subulwa said when she toured her constituency a few days ago that Zambia was achieving economic development despite numerous challenges.
She said although there were many challenges affecting the country such as high poverty levels, the Government was doing its best and that there was need for positive criticism.
“Rome was not built in one day and this is the same with our country,” Ms Subulwa said. “There are many challenges but we are benefiting from President Lungu’s national development agenda, and it is important for youths to continue supporting him and not to be swayed by some individuals that want to frustrate his agenda to develop our country.”
The MP held meetings with youth groups to discuss matters of fostering development to Sioma and hailed the President for exhibiting a leadership that was not segregative.
This, Ms Subulwa said, was because of focused investment by President Lungu to ensure no citizen was left out in his agenda to take development countrywide.
Ms Subulwa said positive criticism was welcome to build the nation and not politicking to gain political mileage.
She was happy with the construction of communication towers in some areas of her constituency to enhance mobile phone networks, which had for many years been a challenge for the electorate in Mutomena and Sitoti where towers were completed and are operational while that in Siukela is underway.
Ms Subulwa said Sioma was also benefiting from health and education through the construction of health posts and schools, significantly helping to uplift the welfare of people, and that the Government had this year committed to constructing a mini-hospital in Nangweshi and a health post in Kalongola.
Ms Subulwa said the provision of the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) was another fund helping to accelerate the construction of community projects to see the completion of abandoned projects.
She was confident as President Lungu embarked on a countrywide tour to check on development projects, he would visit Sioma to interact with the locals to learn challenges affecting them.
And Reverend Lungu said Mr Kambwili and Mr Kalaba served as Cabinet ministers and people expected more from them, unlike what was prevailing on the ground.
He said the two had decided to seek sympathy from their tribesmen and other Zambians by putting up fake allegations against the Government instead of giving the people evidence of their corruption claims.
Rev Lungu said the duo could not deceive the people that the challenges the country was facing were caused by President Lungu who had not served the country that long.
