PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu says will continue visiting all parts of the country to check on progress of developmental projects because Zambia is his constituency.
Speaking when addressing the Solwezi residents after landing today, President Lungu said he was in North-Western Province to personally monitor development.
“I cannot continue encouraging my members of parliament to visit their constituencies when I am not visiting my constituency as I said Zambia is my constituency so you will see me over Zambia,” President Lungu said.
He also told his critics that he would not stop travelling because it was his job.
“Those colleagues saying I am spending too much time travelling, I am sorry that is my job,” President Lungu said.
He pledged to work with the people of North Western Province to develop their province even though they didn’t vote for him.
“What we need to know is that it is one Zambia one nation and there’s is only one leader, and that is me. Whether you voted for me or you did not vote for me, I am not bothered, my job is to work for the people of Zambia and I realize is that North Western Province is one of the three least developed provinces in this country, it is not your fault it’s not my fault but we are working together because it is our time to work for the people of Zambia,” he said.
“Those who don’t want to work please give us space we want to work. If you are sleeping and dreaming that we are still campaigning we will let you go on sleeping and dreaming, this is because we have seen that in Zambia after voting people go back to campaign again, me as a winner of that election, I want to work and I am going to work. One of the things I want to work on fast is the road Chingola-Solwezi road that’s a priority to me; I will make sure that North Western Province is connected to the Copperbelt, Central province to Western province.”
