Speaking when he addressed a meeting in Mwangaila ward on Saturday, Dr Banda, who is also Kapoche MP, said this is the time for the current government to continue working.
He said President Edgar Lungu will continue delivering development to all parts of the country without segregation.
Dr Banda said the government is fulfilling the 2016 campaign promises.
“We are implementing our campaign promises. President Edgar Lungu is saying we should deliver development to all parts of the country without leaving anyone behind. We have not left anyone behind in rural areas or in town, we want everyone to know that the PF government think about you even if you are in the village,” Dr Banda said.
He called for unity among the people.
Dr Banda said with unity, no problem is insurmountable.
He said President Lungu encourages ministers to meet people and hear their challenges.
Dr Banda said time for campaigns has not yet come but that he was merely fulfilling his mandate as MP to meet the people and discuss developmental programmes.
“Next year on 12 August, we are going to have elections. The five years mandate which you gave us is coming to an end next year and between May and June, parliament will be closed. When they close parliament, it means my mandate as your MP has ended. When parliament is closed and you see me here, it means it is time for judgement time for campaign,” he said.
Dr Banda said he will go to the people in the constituency to judge him when parliament closes.
“I cannot ask for judgement now because days are still there but I will come and you will judge me. When time for campaigns comes, everyone will be allowed to campaign. That will be time when some people will allege that ‘Charles did not do anything here, vote for me because I constructed boreholes and roads in the air and I will bring them down’. So it will be up to you to see the road which is in the air and the one which is on the ground, which I have constructed,” he said.
Dr Banda also highlighted a number of projects that he has implemented so far such as the sinking of 97 boreholes, construction of roads, clinics, schools among many others.
