After pedaling the canoe to State House in a dramatic fashion and to the total disbelief of those in power then, President Sata is emphatically shaping up to be one of Zambia’s most successful Heads of State in living memory.
Micheal Sata in his quest to to live up to his election promises has deployed one of the most formidable retinue of cabinet ministers in order to see that each and every verbal and written promises that he made comes to fruition.
While critics cower to the international community publicizing falsehoods, the PF government has remained steadfast as it unleashes a tidal wave of sanitizing the nation from the clog that became the hallmark rule of the MMD.
Among the most committed lieutenants in the PF’s declared war on poverty is a veteran ex-trade unionist they have come to lovingly and fondly call Santa. He has seen it all in the battle to have humane conditions of service and to today’s working generation, Fackson Shamenda has brought early Christmas to Zambia’s shunned and poorly paid workers.
It has with no doubt added another legion of supporters to the PF, and 2016 will surely be water off a ducks back as the party is set to record a landslide.
It is the burning issue of the day but the PF has proven its critics wrong by ensuring that everyone feasts from the national trough of prosperity; from the CEO to the Garden Boy, everyone is simply benefiting, except for a stubborn ghost from the Zambia Federation of Employers or Zambia Federation of Exploiters depending on the case.
Among the major policies the PF has fostered include;
1) A favourable education policy that will see the setting up of 5 national Universities, this will in due course lift the strain on the University of Zambia and stones being thrown will be a thing of the past.
2) 4.2 trillion has been earmarked for major road works in the PF budget of 2012.
3) The restriction placed on the dollar has shown the economy will be impacted positively
It is a forgone conclusion that the 2016 National Assembly will be dominated by the PF as Zambians will turn out in large droves to give the party the deserved vote.
