President Hichilema Affirms Commitment to Workers’ Empowerment on Labour Day

President Hakainde Hichilema has reiterated his administration’s unwavering commitment to placing workers at the heart of Zambia’s economic recovery during Labour Day celebrations in Solwezi. 

Under the theme “Building Resilience: Workers at the Heart of Zambia’s Economic Recovery,” the event served as a poignant reminder of the pivotal role that workers play in driving the nation’s prosperity.

President Hichilema, reflecting on a promise made during his time in opposition, emphasized the imperative to decentralize state functions from the capital city of Lusaka to every corner of Zambia. 

He underscored that Zambia is far more than just Lusaka, highlighting the diversity and significance of all regions within the country. This decentralization initiative, he asserted, fosters unity and inclusivity, key tenets of his administration’s agenda.

Central to the President’s address was the call for collaborative efforts among employers, employees, and the government to ensure that work translates into tangible outcomes. 

He stressed the importance of meaningful employment and business opportunities for the local population, coupled with investments in critical local infrastructure such as roads, schools, and healthcare facilities.

Moreover, President Hichilema urged employers to uphold fairness in their treatment of workers while encouraging workers to embrace a positive work culture. This emphasis on mutual respect and cooperation forms the bedrock of his vision for a thriving and equitable workforce.

In closing, President Hichilema extended warm Labour Day greetings to workers across the nation, reaffirming his administration’s steadfast dedication to their empowerment and well-being.
