PRESS STATEMENT ON YOUNG ZAMBIAN PARLIAMENTARIANS VISITING INDIA FOR RELEASE TO THE MEDIA ON AUGUST 4, 2017 (ELECTRONIC MEDIA)

 

Two young Parliamentarians who are representing Zambia in India at a young law makers meet are happy to learn that Zambia remains a shining example of a highly democratic country in Africa.

 

CHINSALI Central Member of Parliament KALALWE MUKOSA says young parliamentarians meeting in India from 22 African Countries to learn about India’s democracy are happy with Zambia’s democratic and peace record.

 

MR. MUKOSA says Zambia just as India are strong democracies that tolerate divergent and dissenting views with a plural media landscape.

 

He says it is saddening that some people are working hard to give a negative impression that Zambia is ungovernable when the world is admiring Zambia’s political system.

 

MR. MUKOSA says the young Parliamentarians have ranked the country among the top four that include Ghana, Zambia Tanzania, and Malawi.

 

Another Young Parliamentarian YIZUKANJI SIWANZI says the political ties between India and Zambia are cordial as the two Countries are former British colonies, members of the non aligned movement and the Commonwealth.

 

MR. SIWANZI who is NAKONDE Member of Parliament says India has achieved economic emancipation and wants to invest in friendly countries Africa such as Zambia by sharing the development path it took.

 

He says India is interested in investing in Zambia more because of the prevailing peace which is a prerequisite for trade and investment.

 

Mr. SIWANZI says the lawmakers are impressed with the enthusiasm by India to help Zambia decongest Lusaka City Roads by building four fly over bridges and expanding existing roads.

 

He also says India is confident of ensuring that the project to build six hundred and fifty health posts in Zambia succeeds by releasing additional funds.

 

This came to light when they two legislators called on Zambia’s High Commissioner to India JUDITH KAPIJIMPANGA in New Delhi, India.

 

And Mrs. KAPIJIMPANGA says it is gratifying to note that young people in Zambia are taking up political leadership roles for the renaissance of economic freedom.

 

She says she is confident that the good practices learnt from India will be put to good use for the good of the people of Zambia.

 

The High Commissioner says the move to allow young people in politics is an indication that Zambia will not have a vacuum of leadership in future thereby urging them to explain the Government’s development agenda of the Country.

 

This is contained in a statement made available by First Secretary Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in New Delhi, India, BANGWE NAVILEY.
