Ndola district chairperson Joseph Phiri said during a media briefing on Saturday that the PF was only good at developing areas where there are by-elections.
He said Ndola City had been left out of the massive infrastructure development project being implemented by the PF government.
“Ndola is left out despite numerous promises that were made by the PF. To us, this is a sign that the Patriotic Front government has failed to deliver to the expectations of the people in the four constituencies all with PF MP’s in Ndola,” Phiri said who urged the four members of Parliament in Ndola to work on the suspended projects in the City. “It is wrong for government to work on these projects during campaign periods as it is a mockery on the Zambian people.”
Further, he said the the parliamentarians had failed to fulfill several of their campaign promises, among them the assurance that marketeers would have trading shelters constructed, but traders were still selling their merchandise in open places.
Phiri also bemoaned the high number of unemployment youths in Ndola, saying that was the cause of escalating criminal activities.
