President Edgar Lungu has asked Zambians for a fresh mandate in the August 12, 2021 general elections and has assured them that difficult days are coming to an end.
Launching the PF 2021-2026 manifesto at Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka today, the Head of State said with confidence that better days are coming for Zambians, whom he thanked for electing him in 2016.
“We have worked hard and done the best that we could. We yet call upon you to give us a fresh mandate and I call tell you we shall not disappoint you. With the work we have done so far, I can state with confidence that the difficult days are coming to an end; better days are coming,” he said.
The President said the launch of the manifesto is meant to renew his government’s covenant with the Zambian people.
“The launch of this document obviously, coincides with the forthcoming election. It is meant to renew our covenant with the Zambian people, apart from the fact that we, as a party, are in competition with other political parties to lead this great nation. The difference however, with our opponents is that we are a tested and experienced party whose mission is to continue developing our great nation. This is why the theme of the manisfesto I launch today is ‘Making Every Zambian Count, Continuity for a Prosperous, Peaceful, Stable and an all-inclusive Zambia’,” he said.
And President Lungu said it was not debatable that economies around the world are going through turbulent times, more so because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Zambia is no exception.
