PATRIOTIC Front candidate for Kafubu ward Francis Chisenga has assured the electorate that he will commit himself to hard work when elected in the August 11, 2016 polls.
Speaking at a meeting with the community in Messengers compound in Kabushi constituency, Mr Chisenga said he would set the agenda for development of his ward.
He said he was forced to contest the elections as he was at pains that the area where he lived in had never received meaningful development in the last 51 years apart from a bus station.
He said the area had lagged in development and if elected he would ensure that funds meant for ward development were used on projects.
He said it was disheartening that youths and adults had indulged in alcohol abuse in the area due to lack of employment, promising that when ward funds were released, priority would be given to residents of KX and Messenger compounds.
They would be given an opportunity to work on projects such as unblocking of drainages to earn money and support their families.
He also assured the electorates that he would construct a bridge across Kafubu River that demarcates the two compounds.
“I give credit to the former Member of Parliament, Mrs. Dorothy Kazunga, who has constructed a bus station, but the former councillor and his committee failed to put up any project despite being recipients of ward funds from the council,” Mr.Chisenga said.
