Vice President Inonge Wina has decided not to be considered as a running mate in the August 12, elections.
Mrs. Wina says she has reached a stage in her political journey where she needs to take a different role that will see a new generation of leaders take charge of the affairs of the country.
The Vice President says she recently turned 80 and cannot summon the same energy as she did when she was a young wife to a freedom fighter, taking a position in the trenches.
Mrs. Wina however says she will continue to support President Edgar Lungu to ensure that all government programs are effectively implemented in the election period.
The Vice President said this at a media briefing at Government House in Lusaka this morning.
Mrs. Wina thanked President Lungu or having appointed her as the first female vice president of the country.
She described it as a historical milestone in the recognition of women in leadership at the highest level of government.
Mrs. Wina however said the Vice President question time was at times challenging but still provided a suitable opportunity for government to be scrutinized by the people through their elected representatives.
She said her involvement in the affairs of the country dates back to the pre independence stage and is privileged to have served the country in modern times with the support of citizens.
Mrs. Wina further said that efforts to serve the people through the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit -DMMU- would not be successful in isolation as this was a concerted effort by various supporting partners.
She thanked Zambians for the privilege accorded to her to serve as Vice President of the country.
