His Excellency, Mr. Rupiah Banda, President of the Republic of Zambia
His Excellency, Mr. Rupiah Banda, President of the Republic of Zambia, will on Friday leave for Isoka District in the Northern Province for a one-day working visit.
During the visit, the President is expected to commission the commencement of the Isoka-Muyombe-Chama-Lundazi road project. The project highlights the President’s commitment to building a better future for Zambia, by establishing security, stability and prosperity for all Zambians.
The construction, maintenance, rehabilitation and upgrading of major roads is a countrywide Government programme under the Road Sector Investment Programme (RODASIP) II and reinforces how the President is providing for the Zambian people, not based on tribal or regional allegiances but on genuine need.
The road provides a direct link to Lusaka and the Eastern, Western, and Southern Provinces and also connects the Eastern, Northern, and Copperbelt Provinces and is part of the President’s pledge to build the foundations of a stable future for the Zambian people.
President Banda recently launched the Sixth National Development Plan (SNDP) whose main thrust is infrastructure development, which is critical to the promotion of growth and sustainable development.
The President has worked successfully to create strong foundations on which to build tomorrow’s Zambia. As a result, the economy has delivered growth of more than 6.6% despite the global recession, thanks to sound government policies.
Since coming into office in November 2008, President Banda’s administration has constructed or rehabilitated over 40,000 kilometres of roads and built 87 new bridges.
Achievements such as these are pivotal to the President’s commitment to maintaining steady growth and looking to a future where all Zambians enjoy a good education, access to healthcare and benefit from a prosperous economy.
The President will be accompanied to Isoka by Minister of Works and Supply Hon. Mike Mulongoti, MP, Minister of Tourism, Environment and Natural Resources Hon. Cathrine Namugala, MP and Deputy Minister of Finance and National Planning Hon. David Phiri, MP.
