Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Minister Inonge Wina says there is need to strengthen the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) in Western Province and also acknowledge the amount of work in the province as that party celebrates it victory.
AND Provincial Minister Nathanial Mubukwanu noted that the PF party has formed government at a time when people have great expectations in the province.
Mrs. Wina said the party should apply more effort in ensuring that it grows in the region hence the need to strengthen its mass recruitment.
“You are therefore called to duty to yet again to ensure that we strengthen the party by mass recruitment. To achieve this we need to be a disciplined party all the time,” she emphasized.
She was speaking in Mongu last night when she graced the official opening of the Patriotic Front Christmas and New Year party that was organized by the District Committee and held at Mongu Trades Training Institute main campus.
Mrs. Wina who is also PF National Chairperson and Nalolo Member of Parliament noted that as a new party in government, there is a huge responsibility to develop the country based on equitable distribution of power and resources.
The Minister pointed out that the challenge of developing the Western Province and country at large calls for resources, huge commitment, strong dedication, hard work and tolerance from all Zambians irrespective of their Political affiliation and social culture position including class and gender.
“In this regard, we must lead by example. Let us ask ourselves of what we can do for the party rather than what the party can do for us,” Wina added.
She commended the district committee for organizing the Christmas and New Year part whose aim was to promote social interaction and party unity saying it is a bed rock for recruitment.
Meanwhile Mr. Mubukwanu has appealed to the PF membership to emulate President Michael Sata in the fight against corruption.
He said the development of the province will depend on the party’s good conduct, governance, hard work as well as a spirited commitment towards the fight against corruption.
“The development of this province depends on our conduct as a party therefore we ourselves should be the seen to be the drivers in the fight against corruption,” Mubukwanu stated.
The Minister has since called on all PF members to team up with the Provincial Administration in order to stay steady fast in developing the province.
The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) only managed to scoop two parliamentary seat in the Western Province namely Nalolo and Mongu Central Constituencies respectively.
