By SYLVIA MWEETWA – PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has said delivering of development projects must go on despite the election period that the country is going through. President Lungu said the Government had a duty to develop the nation and that its mandate would not be restrained by the elections. Mr Lungu said during a public rally in Kitwe that the Government’s agenda was to develop every part of the country and that it would continue doing so even after the elections. He said the Government had committed itself to improving schools, roads and health facilities, which were key to the country’s development. “We will continue to touch and develop each and every part of the country. We are not going to be limited in terms of delivering development projects because of the elections. Development projects will continue even after the elections,” President Lungu said. Mr Lungu said the Patriotic Front (PF) administration believed that opening up development in rural areas was key to reducing poverty. He said the Government would ensure that it raised the living standards of the less privileged, especially those in the rural areas. Mr Lungu also said the pronouncements on the construction of a new airport on the Copperbelt were not merely promises, but that plans were underway and would be implemented to the letter.
