Scott Urges Central to Embrance PF

VICE-PRESIDENT Guy Scott has urged people of Central Province to embrace the vision of the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) whose plans are to ensure that development is taken to all corners of the country.

Dr Scott said Central Province had in the past been dominated by the opposition making it difficult to deliver developmental programmes and that the Government would only be able to deliver on its campaign promises if the people of the province embrace the ruling party.

Speaking when he addressed party officials from Chisamba and Chibombo at Fringila lodge yesterday at a party mobilisation meeting attended by PF Secretary General Wynter Kabimba and his deputy Bridget Atanga among other party officials, Dr Scott said the PF has committed itself to taking development to all corners of the country.

He said although PF won some parliamentary seats in the province, it was of the view that it needed to work hard and ensure that it had more seats in the province.

“I want to state that Central Province is still a province dominated by the opposition but we will need to work hard and get serious with our party mobilisation programmes and we should stop crying every time we lose elections,” he said.

He explained that the party has been losing elections because of divisions and lack of support for each other and appealed to members to remain steadfast and move the party forward.

Speaking earlier, Mr Kabimba who is Justice Minister rebuked some members who have turned the party into a gossip industry instead of mobilising the members, adding that time to start mobilising was now.

He warned that the party would not sit and watch people with no interest for the PF continue to destroy it and that those found wanting would be dealt with.

Mr Kabimba said PF had a mandate to ensure its developmental agenda was not derailed due to selfish individuals.

He further appealed to party organs to ensure that there were no squabbles when adopting people to stand on positions adding that if that continues, it had the capability of destroying the party.

He said members should avoid harbouring personal interests when adopting candidates saying that the party lost the Katuba by-election because of misunderstandings among the members and that should serve as a lesson.
