Growth coming — President Sata

ZAMBIANS must work hard and sacrifice in order for development to spread to all parts of the country as more resources will now be available after removal of subsidies, President Michael Sata has said.
Mr Sata said Government’s decision to remove subsidies on maize and fuel was meant to’¨equitably spread national resources to all Zambians across the country.
He said, therefore, that the Government could not maintain fuel subsidy at the expense’¨of many Zambians, especially those in rural areas who were wallowing in poverty.
The President was speaking in Lusaka yesterday during the Inter-denominational Thanksgiving Service to commemoration this year’s Africa Freedom Day and the 50th anniversary of the African Union (AU).
National Restoration Party president Elias Chipimo and People’s Party leader Mike Mulongoti attended the service.
