PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Secretary General Wynter Kabimba has appealed to all companies to stop the culture of victimising PF members on the basis of their political afffiliation.
“I would like in this regard to urge all organs from the section, branch, ward, constituency, district and province to assert your authority wherever you are as the party in power.
“It is the MMD and UPND who are in the opposition and not PF,” he said.
He said the PF had managed to win donor confidence which had waned under the MMD regime.
Mr Kabimba, however, acknowledged the challenges the party was still facing especially in the reconstruction of various sectors of the economy, in particular youth unemployment.
He outlined some of the successes as the reduction of fuel and mealie-meal prices adding that fuel procurement was previously fraught with corruption at all levels.
“Health user fees were abolished, school fees were also abolished at secondary level, lending rates reduced to 9 per cent the lowest ever, the Government take-over of Zamtel and the revamping of the Constitution process are some of the achievements of the PF Government,” he said.
Others include the reduction of Cabinet ministers from 25 to 18, an improved attitude in the work culture.
