He said President Lungu’s desire to empower his citizens went beyond religious or political affiliation.
And Mkushi North Member of Parliament Doreen Mwape thanked the Head of State for empowering people especially in her area.
Ms Mwape encouraged women in the area to form cooperatives so that they could be empowered as a group.
He said President Lungu should be commended for empowering both the vulnerable but viable women and men using his own resources.
