OUR ZAMBIA, OUR PRIDE
EGYPTIANS prided themselves in business acumen; Romans boasted in civilisation and culture; Greeks excelled in their learning; Jews considered themselves as chosen by God; Pharisees thought they were the chosen of the chosen; Sadducees thought they were doctrinally pure.
The New Dawn regime has an opportunity to enlist and chronicle itself in making Zambia the correct real Africa, by addressing the poverty levels and other crosscutting issues affecting the people.
Our identifying mark as a country can be engraved internationally if the New Dawn regime will effectively implement and fulfil the promises made to Zambians.
Zambians have the appetite for the fulfilment of UPND’s promise for:
✓ Better jobs.
✓Increased salaries for civil servants.
✓ Recruitment and empowerment for the unemployed youths.
✓Reduced cost of agriculture inputs.
✓Lower fuel prices and lower exchange rates.
✓Putting an end to political violence and cadrerism.
✓Caging cadres through entrepreneurship empowerment programmes.
✓Sustainable empowerment developmental schemes.
✓Increased local productions and manufacturing industry.
✓Well equipped medical facilities.
As DP, we will closely check, remind and offer alternative therapeutical suggestions to improve the welfare of the people.
We applaud the President for his stance on cadrerism, and we appeal that the regime helps these citizens to channel their energies to sustainable economic programmes. DP believes that we can build a Zambia without a dependence syndrome.
