Freedom fighters to be awarded residential plots

Government has directed Kafue district council to allocate plots to the 13 freedom fighters who were honoured during the 50th Golden Jubilee independence celebrations. 

Kafue Member of Parliament, Obvious Mwaliteta, says the role played by the gallant men and women   during the struggle of independence could not go unrewarded.

Mr. Mwaliteta has since commended the district administration for recognizing the freedom fighters in the district.

The Member of Parliament said this at the 50th Jubilee independence celebrations in Kafue district on Friday.

He further assured the communities in the district of Government’s commitment to ensure that the peace that the forefathers fought for was safeguarded.

Presenting the Jubilee babies,’’ Pastor John Engaenga commended Government for recognizing and honouring the freedom fighters.

Pastor Engaenga said most of the freedom fighters especially those in rural areas were struggling to earn a living. – ZANIS
