President-elect Hakainde Hichilema has promised to unite Zambia and revive the motto “one Zambia, one nation.” He stated that individuals who voted for the UPND as well as those who did not vote for the UPND will be treated equally.
Mr. Hichilema stated that his cabinet will have a national character and will embody the slogan.
He stated that under his leadership, tribe will not matter because all Zambians will have equal opportunity.
Mr. Hichilema told the media today at his residence in Lusaka that advancement in the civil service will be based on skill rather than ethnicity.
Mr Chalwe has appealed to President elect Mr Hichilema to quickly expedite ways into which contractors can be paid their money that they are being owed.
“Zambia needs all of us to develop, if the contractors are paid the money they are owed, they will go on site and complete their projects,” he said.
Mr Chalwe further urged the contractors and people of Eastern Province to rally behind Mr Hichilema and his administration if the region is to develop.
