“I WANT to leave a legacy of selflessness in the way we do politics because I understand what it means to be betrayed by people you entrusted with public responsibility”, Kalomo Central Independent parliamentary aspirant Smart Muwele has said.
Mr. Muwele said people of Kalomo Central were looking for a leader who would transform the constituency into a major town whose rich historical background and legacy was almost forgotten because of under-development.
He said the tendency of politicians seek public office in order to enrich themselves was making politics a venture by which people should amass wealth, adding that this had left most parts of the country undeveloped as some parliamentarians were preoccupied with pursuing personal interest once elected.
He pledged to lobby for better roads in the constituency once elected into office, saying being a farming block, Kalomo needed good roads that would make the delivery of farming produce to markets easier and cheaper unlike the current situation where most roads were impassable and shunned by transporters.
