Ahead of the Easter weekend, His Excellency, President Rupiah Banda of Zambia, has reinforced his pledge to provide a better future for all Zambians – while asking every person to take time to reflect on the importance of family and community values.
During his time in office, President Banda has been working tirelessly to achieve a better place for Zambia in the world. His policies have brought better healthcare provision, increased education and employment opportunities, underpinned by steady economic growth which has yielded investment across the country.
Most recently, he has taken the vital step of writing-off the debt on over 3,300 parastatal homes in the Copperbelt, meaning that thousands of Zambians will now enjoy Easter in their own homes.
President Banda has always said that tomorrow’s Zambia must be built on foundations of security and stability – and he has used his Easter message to stress the importance of peace and co-operation, most notably during election year.
The President said: “Easter marks an opportunity for us to take stock and reflect on the importance of family, community and the need for peace and stability in our country.
“Now we are in election year, I wish to reassure the Zambian people that these elections will be free, fair and open. In return, I appeal to all people to help us maintain a peaceful and supportive society. The Zambia people will this year choose who they wish to lead the Zambia of tomorrow. My promise to them is that I will not rest until every man, woman and child enjoys the fruits of a strong and prosperous nation.”
