THE Patriotic Front (PF) party will ruin the country if voted into Government again, says UPND vice president Dr. Canisius Banda.
In an interview yesterday, Dr. Banda said the PF had nothing to offer Zambians if voted into government on 20th January, 2015.
He said the future of Zambia and her people were in the hands of the UPND whose progranmme was acceptable to all well-meaning Zambians.
Dr. Banda said it was sad that the PF had continued to tell Zambians that it would continue to pursue President Sata’s vision of more money in people’s pockets.
“There is no news or information about what the PF will do when they form government. This is a fact. They have talked about continuing with the late President Sata‘s vision which failed the people of Zambia. Is this the vision the people of Zambia want?” Dr. Banda wondered.
He said if UPND was voted into government next month, its main programme would be developing the nation by ensuring that the people of Zambia have jobs, access to loans for business and land empowerment.
Dr. Banda said the Constitution was also a key promise to be delivered to the people of Zambia before the 2016 general elections.
He said the UPND would also maintain Zambia as a Christian nation and include in the Constitution the 50 per cent plus one vote and the running mate for vice president.
“We have to make democracy meaningful and resourceful by according Zambians a Constitution they want. Why should we stick to the Public Order Act whose purpose is to kill democracy?” he asked.
Dr. Banda explained that UPND president Hakainde Hichilema’s government would promote equity of resources for national development, adding that health service delivery to rural areas and the rest of the country would be accessible.
He also said the UPND would organise and improve the agriculture sector by allowing small scale farmers graduate from over-dependance on Government grants in order to allow more people to participate.
“This will be attainable under the UPND because we shall ensure that we pay our farmers well and on time. And we shall ensure that their produce does not go to waste.
We shall also ensure that we promote diversification and not be dependant on rain fed farming,” said Dr. Banda.
