The year 2013 has had its own challenges.
As a political party and as a people, we showed a lot of resilience to fight some of the injustices in 2013 that were at the behest of people we entrusted to run the affairs of our nation, the Patriotic Front (PF). The price of mealie meal went up to unaffordable levels, freedoms of movement were curtailed and political persecution was rife in some instances even resulted in deaths. The human rights records were appalling and efforts by many citizens to advise government fell on deaf ears In short 2013 was a nightmare in many scores.
As we go into 2014, I am urging the PF to put their act together and work for the betterment of the country. Zambia needs affordable Mealie Meal and not unnecessary by-elections. Zambians need jobs and not a bloated government. Zambians need more money in their pockets as per campaign promise and not new promises.
Zambian needs economic independence.
I am urging Zambians to be resolved and resilient as we face the challenges that 2014 will bring forth.
I take this opportunity to thank everyone for the moral, material and financial support that was rendered to the party. As we continue with the fight for a better Zambia, I am calling on all to embrace the spirit of volunteerism and sacrifice.
I am wishing everyone God’s Blessings in 2014.
