President Banda launches Mfumbeni strategic plan


Chipata, August 7, ZANIS——President Rupiah Banda has officially launched the Mfumbeni Five-Year Strategic Development Plan aimed at mitigating poverty in Senior Chief Nzamane’s area in Chipata district of Eastern Province. During the launch President Banda challenged Zambians to take up the initiative to develop the country saying Zambia would never develop as long as the dependency syndrome persisted among its citizenry.
The occasion was held at Chilobwe Basic School grounds in Senior Chief Nzamane’s area in Chipata district today. The President observed that the best development was the one initiated by the people themselves hence the need to get involved, as this would also attract assistance from various cooperating partners.
“Meaningful development can only be achieved through the participation of all people including those at grass root levels by being committed to eliminating poverty,” he said.
