President Michael Sata calls on Zambians to work hard and sacrifice in order to develop the country

Zambians need to work hard and sacrifice in order for the country’s development agenda to propel forward, President Michael Sata has said.
Mr Sata said Governments decision to remove subsidies was meant to equitably spread the national cake to all Zambians
He said Government could not maintain the fuel subsidy at the expense of many Zambians especially those in rural areas wallowing in abject poverty hence the need to adroitly uplift their livelihood.
Mr Sata has since called for sacrifice and hard work among Zambians citing first republican President Kenneth Kaunda, freedom fighter Grey Zulu and others who greatly sacrificed for national development.
“Why should poor people particular those in rural areas continue to suffer? We can’t have fuel subsidies when majority of Zambians are living poverty.
