Zambia poised for development under PF – CCZ’s Rev. Mwale

The Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) has observed that the country has experienced a renewed spirit which has invigorated the expectations of the Zambian people following the change of government.

CCZ president Moses Mwale says the organisation believes that a well developed Zambia is possible under the new Patriotic Front (PF) leadership and will continue to hope that lives of many people will be improved upon.

Speaking at a press briefing in Lusaka today, Rev. Mwale called on all well meaning Zambians to support all progressive programmes being planned and already implemented by government.

He noted that Zambians cannot be bystanders in their own development but should remain active participants in their communities in matters meant to improve their livelihoods and that of the future generation.

Rev. Mwale, however, made some observations on the current state of affairs in the country.

Among other notable concerns that were raised included commissions of inquiry, re-alignment of districts and creation of new government portfolios, shuffling of ministries, hiring and firing of top civil servants .

Rev. Mwale commended government for appointing the commissions of inquiries but was concerned that the recommendations of the commissions may not be treated with the seriousness and the gravity they deserve.

He advised government to keep in mind the costs to the tax payers associated with the commissions and to ensure that Zambians get value for their money from the work of the commissions.
