A PATRIOTIC Front (PF) ward councillor in Kalulushi says he intends to re-contest the August 11 general elections because he wants to accomplish all the projects he initiated since he became a councillor in 2011.
Lubuto ward councillor Geoffrey Kanda said he would not want the projects he initiated not to be completed by August 11.
Mr Kanda in an interview in Kalulushi yesterday said he was going to re-contest on his party ticket because it was the only party he knew had the potential to deliver services to its electorate.
He said since 2011, he had initiated a number of projects in his ward, some of which had been completed.
“I became a councillor for Lubuto ward in 2011 and I have managed to bring a lot of projects in my ward. For example in most parts of my ward roads were impassable, but through the ward development funds most of them have been re-gravelled and are now passable.So in my next term, I want most of them to be built into bituminous standards so that there would be no more mud in our ward,” Mr Kanda said.
He cited a police posts in Zam Clay, Amlew and some roads in Kalengwa North as some of the projects that had so far been completed.
Mr Kanda said the putting up of street lights in Eucalyptus street was another project he initiated and completed.
He said the major projects would not be completed by the time the council would be dissolved hence his desire to recontest the seat.
“I am one person who does not want to see my work remaining uncompleted. For that reason, I want to come back and ensure that all my projects are completed,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mr Kanda said he would remain loyal to the PF even if he was not adopted.
