Zambia: Govt Will Not Neglect Mufumbwe - Veep

VICE-PRESIDENT Guy Scott has assured the people of Miluji in Mufumbwe in North-Western Province that Government will keep a close eye on the problems affecting the district.

Speaking during a rally to drum up support for Patriotic Front (PF) candidate Steven Masumba, Dr Scott said the Government was aware of the challenges the people in Mufumbwe were facing in the education and health sectors.

He said the Government had decided to allocate 14 rural health centres to improve the quality of healthcare to the local people.

He said in two weeks, the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit would be in the district to assess the state of bridges and roads.

Dr Scott said the MMD lost the 2011 elections in the area because they either neglected or failed to address the problems which the residents were facing.

Tourism and Arts Minister, Sylvia Masebo urged the people of Mufumbwe to work with the Government in taking development to the area by voting for the PF candidate.

Western Province Minister, Obvious Mwaliteta appealed to the locals to go in numbers on voting day, November 8, and vote for Mr Masumba.
