Zambezi and Solwezi to have international airports- Sata

Headlines Zambezi and Solwezi to have international airports- Sata

Patriotic Front PF President Michael Sata has promised to tar the Mwinilunga -Kabompo road and turn Zambezi and Solwezi air ports into international air ports.

Addressing a public rally in Solwezi yesterday, Mr. Sata said he would improve the lives of people by developing Zambia without discriminating.

He also said he would reduce the price of mealie meal from K75, 000 to K25, 000 and conquer HIV/AIDS once elected President of Zambia.

Mr. Sata warned investors to respect Zambian workers, adding that he would make laws to force them to respect their workers if they decide to be arrogant.

He further charged that he would write off Chiefs car loans when he comes into power because Chiefs were supposed to be going round visiting their subjects to supervise them in any developmental projects in their areas.

Mr. Sata refuted allegations that he will chase away the Luvale, Chokwe Lundas and other tribes in Northwestern Province to Angola.

Mr. Sata said he had no such intentions because Northwestern Province is part of Zambia and he cannot chase away people that he wants to rule.

The PF President promised the people of Northwestern Province that he would develop the Province by constructing hydro power plants on the Zambezi, Kabompo and Lunga rivers to do away with the diesel machines and introduce mango, pine apple and rice plants.

Mr. Sata said there were no enough hospitals in Zambia and once he comes into power he would build hospitals and Television stations in every Province.

  1. He can fit mufyabukaya programme, he can play the part of Shin’gonga’s brother, he is a good joker. In nigeria he can be Ukwa’s brother. VIVA CHILUFYA

  2. Remember your promises when you are in power, otherwise 2011 we are going to burry and forget about you like you never existed. viva pa bwatooo….

  3. now they know that u are real man in solwezi and hooting of cars have continued ever since your rally ended.teta is no more and rb is facing huge resistance from the kaondes.he now believes that sata u are man of action.

    now north western sata might come number 2 if not no1.

    go sata goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  4. I wouldn’t mind CMS as my Presido but I prefer HH. RB is possessed with a spirit of stupor, that is why Mulongotetamakundampombo Inc have planned to send him to a far far away land of the unknown immediately if he wins the vote.

  5. This man can do what he says ..give him a chance. He has proved it in the Past none of the other candidates have a track record of accomplishing anything. Sata has projects that we still enjoy today ..just to list 5 & not covering his impact on workers in ministries he was in charge
    1) Kabwe Roundabout Flyover bridge
    2) Dual carriage road behind state house to Kabulonga
    3) Road to Mass Media Complex
    4) Cleaned up Lusaka
    5) Made Lusaka City Council Profitable

    I can’t list any one thing RB, HH or Miyanda has supervised or initiated that we can point to. Just cheap rhetoric. I will take the risk on Sata, am tired of this mediocrity that just benefits the elite while the rest of us suffer.

  6. all those plans are very good. in most parts of the country we produce a lot of various food stuff but there is no market yet shoprite imports the same things from SA. I wish we knew how other countries are crying to have what we are wasting.

  7. #92, continued.
    Fellow Zambians, there is a game of Chess which is plyed by two players. In Chess, the player with WHITE pieces starts (ATTACKS) the game and put the one with Black pieces on defense (DEFENDS). In this case, the Player with White pieces has a slight advantage over the one with Black ones. However, as the game proceeds the Black pieces players consolidates his pieces to try to gain equal opportunities of winning the game and the moment the White Pieces player makes a simple mistake the Black player takes full control and normally enventually wins. With this in mind, I would like the Bemba-Tribalists to mind their language for we know enough history to Show how Tribal Sata is.

  8. Mr. Sata and your c o h o r t s, thank you for speaking out on my suggestion about airports in the country which i wrote in the thread that involved improvements of Livingstone International Airport. This is very good and it seem your PF cadres are quick to tell you what I am recommending to be done in Zambia from time to time.
    However, how are you going to generate power using the Hydro-electric system from rivers?
    It has been reported above that “he would develop the Province by constructing hydro power plants on the Zambezi, Kabompo and Lunga rivers”.

  9. #17 (PF Cadre) You are damn right my bro! Sata also improved the status of some health centres by introducing maternity wings and mortuaries. He motivated the health personnel by awarding them good salaries thereby improving service delivery when he was health minister. Indeed, the list of his accomplishments is endless! So pa bwato ni zeeeeeee!!!!

  10. i love mr. Sata beecause he holds himself accountable to what he is promising us. he really want to develop zambia. RB just says I will continue LPM’s legacy. My foot he is still dreaming can his aid de camp woke him up.

    RB cannot take care of us. he has shown that he cant take care of himself, look at his weight? if he has failed to take care of himself how can he take care of us???? Vote PF Nyama Soya OUT, OUT. MMD plaease vote pa Bwato.

  11. Zambezi Airport if you have been there has a tower bigger than Ndola and its run way is certainly already big jet capable. If you recall, Angola was worried about its dual use. Large military drop off for Savambi? So what is the Prez of PF suggesting?

    Please remember because of all the problems in the Global markets (the people with real money) FDI will be low and this will affect any such projects.

  12. Sata hold your fire old man. Do not make a lot of promises as you may seem desperate. Next you will tell the christians that once elected you will invite GOD to come and pay us a visit.

  13. # 1 and 2 are those project-undertakings Sata is citing seem impossible to achieve to you? Be ambitious you chaps. Those can be achieved in a 5year period.

  14. whether you like or not sata is the next presido.
    i wish you all witnessed his Rally in N/Western.
    It said it all.this where he lost it in the last
    elections but now is there

  15. I would like to remind PF (dull) cadres that HH will be subject to UPND elections at a GENERAL A S S E M B L Y (convention) and may not win the UPND presidency. So, the hallucinations about HH being President in 2011 must stop because the future is not known. Besides, only God provides life and we can not claim that we will do this in future.
    Thus, it is now for now and we will think about 2011 elections when we will be in 2011, by God’s grace.

    Countdown: 5 days 10 hours 15 minutes remaining and we are counting.
    Vote HH for you children’s sake and your future life improvement.

  16. Let Sata enjoy his old age by touring the country.The man might not be strong enough to do that in 2011 and that might be the reason why he is not for the idea to have elections in 2011.Micheal we shall miss your empty vibes as for PF and UPND start looking for 2011 Presidential candiadates

  17. What manner of sweet talk is this? Mana mana mana…. even a blind man can see that Sata(n)s promisses are cheap politics

  18. Sata’s promises are more mature and than HH’s childish ones where he promises handing out his salary to youths.

  19. # 17 Its like comparing apples and mangoes.Sata has alot of project in his name, you are right, the reason is bcoz he has been in GRZ the longest amongst all politicians I know and has been Gov, Min. Local GRZ, Health, etc.Definately you do not expect RB to have built a road when he was in foreign service. And these are all promises and will remain promises, how do have another hydro power station on the same river twice or thrice … common sense does allow me to agree with this rhetoric.He was part of GRZ that closed all the cashew nuts and pineapples plants …. he wants to open them.And who will land British Airways in zambezi? Going where? To do what there?

  20. The Bembas say aka chila kabushi kasekwila apokekeela.Show us the good roads in Mpika where you come from.The Chunda ponde nabwalya road which looks like atsunami hit road many years you have been in Govnt nothing has been done to this road.How can you develop other areas if you have even failed to construct a pit latrine in your village.No high school,clinic to show that you come from Mpika but you aughed at KK and FTJ for not doing anything in their villages.Let me remind you since you suffer from mental lapses-KK built a secondary school in lubwa named after him in 1965.1989 KK’s Son Waza did some extensions to Chinsali hospital,so if you cannot do something in your home area.Fake Promise

  21. Sata have confidence we are giving you chance not these cantakarace thugs instead of selling their manifestoes,start telling pipo we shall whip you.Zambians or citizens put mmd on lay off grown thick big headed.

  22. How will Sata build a pipeline between Angola and Zambia, Hydro Electric Power Stations in all Provinces, International Airport in Solwezi all in five (5) years! Do we have so many dull people (PF) in Zambia to believe these rantings of a power hungry person like Sata.

  23. Makes a lot of sense. Will be cheaper to transport mining equipment to the area. My only worry is the protection of wild life in the N/W where mining is taking place.

  24. sata is from malawi and he should go back to malawi if he wants other tribes to migrate back to where they came from. People of NW should not even be woodwinked. The province is destined for more economic boom irrespective of who becomes the president. Sata can never develop NW, why this time when he has been in politics > 30yrs. Oil in NW is oozing, begging to be tapped. Sata should go back to malawi before he gets another heart attack.

  25. Environment protection is another issue which need to be checked by GRZ. There are rare species in N/W like the Miyombo woodlands which need to be protected at all cost.

  26. Yabba Sata! You dont just build international AIRPORTS. Who’s going to go there? It needs to be attractive for travel through tourism and economic development as well as sound infrastracture. Im yet to hear about anything in Zambezu, unfortunately.

  27. Old man SATA. Please give us the time frame within which you intend to undertake all these projects because the life span of a politician is up to the next election. Do you intend to be life president or what. Stop taking the people for granted you grey haired old man. I will personally whip you if in the unlikely event you become president and we dont see these airports and pipeline you are dreaming about. Wait and see.

  28. Yes bane…
    Yes he is planning well..we are land locked and should use airports as gate ways and a transit point for Congo, Angola and Namibia…Lsk Int ali myeba kale big ati he will just start a new one…we have too nuch money…did you know Zambia has the lowest Corporate Tax in SADC, later on in Africa if not the world?

    You copper is exported tax free and the mining cos import machinery tax free but they dont pay our fathers who are at risk mining, a living wage……

    The boat saves lives……look at Farmers House, the only modern building pa lusaka……
    Pa bwato for sanity…more money thru less tax by leveling taxation, fewer ministries, independence of institutions of governanc

  29. #45 I agree with you, 100%. Either we do not have enough schools in Zambia to educate people or most of us who attended school are very dull.

  30. DO WE HAVE PEOPLE IN ZAMBIA WOULD BELIEVE THAT???NOT EVEN AN UNDER 5 TODDLER WOULD BELIEVE THIS XTRA LARGE LIAR! PEOPLE LIKE HIM ARE NOT FIT FOR MOTHERLAND.THIS MAN IS A DREAMER,WITHOUT STRATEGIES.

  31. #56 he’s a dreamer yes but a master strategist at the same time. That’s why despite his questionable levels of education, he intrigues great intellectuals, academicians and whatnots with huge success. Funny how he gets more commentary on this blog for example when compared to say the very learned HH. Seen?

  32. #57 No need for personal insults. I am one of the most educated people you may come across, have worked in Zed’s mines and the energy sector at the highest levels. Over here I am managing projects for a big company, a FTSE 100 if that makes sense to you. I came across this blog only this month, hoping to educate some in areas I know better. Where others know better I learn from them and often make a comment to thank them. I am sure we can discuss issues in a civilised manner, otherwise this blog will keep chasing intellectuals away. I have stuck around because I know some people learn from me and I learn from them. Otherwise there are more intellectually stimulating blogs elsewhere.

  33. # 48 MULASABAILA WHO TOLD YOU SATA IS MALAWAN THAT MAN IS TRUE AND TRUE BISA FROM MPIKA HE HAS NO MALAWAN BLOOD IN HIM THE FIRST WIFE WAS MALAWAN NOT HIM YOU GAVE YOU THOSE FACTS STOP DREAMING IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT SHUT YOUR BEAK THE FATHER WAS A VILLGE HEADMAN AT CHITULIKA VILLAGE IN MPIKA NKASHI MULI BABUFI MWE SHAME ON YOU NO FACTS

  34. LIES, LIES, LIES AND LIES LIKE ALWAYS. BASHIKULU, don’t take comfort at the Solwezi crowd. Those were ex-Copperbelt miners, now working in Solwezi(who are not regestered to vote there). The Post Newspaper and its Membe is also spoiling you with its image building task. The thought of Sata(n)in State House is the most scaring nightmare to most Zambians.

  35. We need more folk like you #59. It’s very true that lots of people are blogging on other sites coz of some ugly tones that appear here.

  36. # 57 WETHER HE CLEANS BUMS DOLLAR IMO INE AFTER ALL ITS 10pds per hour in case you dont know multiply that by 12 hrs per day for 60 days in a week how much does that give you ku europe ppl are not ashamed to do an odd job as long as pd ile moneka when i come back i shine meanwhile iwe graduate ungo wayawaya ma 2metre per month mu ZED INE NINSHI NALIWINA YOU JST WISH YOU WOULD ALSO TRAVEL ITS NICE MAKING MONEY IN EUROPE MY DEAR THAN WAISTING YOUR TIME BACK HOME BREAKING YOU BACK PAYING TAX TO FEED THEM POLITICIANS HOW ABOUT THAT

  37. I have been a suppoter of the new Sata. Today he has convist me, he ‘s out there to get elected, and he is ready to do any anything. The same RB policys of price controls are the same thing he goes preaching. we are not nikompoops. Old ideologies, idea and mentality should, should be burried with this last crop of old leaders RB and Sata. Zambia we need people who understand how the world works. Forward with new blood. Lets reject these old madalas with there old politics. People of northwestern/zambia dont be cheated. Sata you let me down.

  38. No17 PF cadre,
    Sata is also the one who changed the status of Solwezi, Chipata, Kasama, Mbala, and Mongu, to municipal status, and gave Livingstone City status, when he was Minister of Local Government and Housing. When he left that portfolio nothing has ever improved, they remained static. Even Mama Talkative Nachilandisha has done nothing apart from arguing with Marketeers. A minister arguing with illeterate marketeers? KK said, Sata can make a good Minister, but not a President(campainging for his brother in-Law; Lupiya Bandit).
    This confirms to you all doubting Thomases that he can also be a good Leader. He can’t be a dictator in a democracy, who would let him? We are not Zimbabwe.

  39. AS SATA’NA WAS ADDRESSING THE CROWD INSOLWEZI THE PIPO KEPT ON SHOUTING BACK AT HIM ,BUBELA ,BUBELA,BUBELA,,SATA’NA WAS SO HAPPY HE DID’NT KNOW THAT THEY WERE SAYING LIES,LIES,LIES .BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  40. #59, I love your cool, these Zedians who have never been to where you are, will never know how it feels and how good it is whatever one does. Silly them.

    #65, you are correct, they think hand to mouth is all that is all about life!

  41. LT. DOES THIS PICTURE ABOVE REALLY DEPICT SOLWEZI? I HAVE SEEN THIS PIX SOMEWHERE SEVERAL WEEK OR MONTHS BACK. SHOW US PICTURES IN REAL TIME. IF YOU DONT HAVE CAMERAS, I HAVE SEVERAL PROFESSIONAL CAMERAS AND VIDEO CAMERAS JUST LYING ABOUT. YOU ARE VERY FREE TO ASK FOR THEM. PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA DO NOT ASK FOR HIGH STANDARDS AND CHAPS LIKE YOU (LT) TAKE THEM FOR GRANTED. THERE ARE PEOPLE AT HOME AND ABROAD WHO DO NOT KNOW SOLWEZI AND IT CAN BE THEIR OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A GLIMPSY OF IT THRU MEDIA. IN SHORT SHOW US THE REAL PICTURE. IF THIS IS SOLWEZI YOU ARE SHOWING-MY APPOLOGIES. VIVA PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA. WE LOVE YOU.

  42. The promises we hear during election time are amazing.Zambia would indeed be heaven on earth if they were fulfilled but after 44years of promises we know better.Why don’t we talk and do these things even when there are no elections? I can understand the opposition saying they will do so and so if elected but for a party that has been in power 17yrs!!!

  43. Countdown: 5 days 5 hours 50 minutes remaining and we are counting.

    Vote for HH for a real ray of Chnage and Hope that all Zambians can believe and trust in. vote for your children’s future. Vote for economic independence

    To this end, I ask RBB and MMD to quickly endorse HH for Zambian President. Munkombwe was quoted as saying the Sata may win if MMD makes a single or simple mistake. So, MMD stand up for what is right. It is not too late for RBB to infrom the Nation through ZNBC TV and radio with Times of Zambia together with Zambia Daily Mail that let all vote for HH.

    May you all Zambians have a great weekend. I am leaving for a SABBATH recess. Thank you all for you support.

  44. 59 dont talk about FTSE 100. Say something else.Just from your writing, I can tell you nkow nothing about financial gymnastics !!

  45. #67 there are rules that guide the establishment of districts and cities you dont just wake up and declare them it has to do with population and many others.So Sata cant take all the credit for upgrading all those districts you have mentioned. And Zambezi into an International Airport ? really? but we all remember that that airport was vandalised by the MMMD during Sata and Tondo Chindoloma time any one recalls the saga and suspicions of illegal dealings at that airport by Angola?

  46. Mr.Sata re-build the Lusaka international it is a shack now,about Solwezi airport future business, Mealie-meal yes you can reduce the price by cutting down the price of gas (petrol) to $3.00 per gallon which in Zambian terms will be K10,000.00 ten pin will give you 5 liters of gas.Everybody go and VOTE PA BWATO

  47. Maestro Hhehhehhehhe… This communication is for your benefit, I know you refused my offer the other day, but that doesn’t mean it stops me from sharing with you my candidate’s brief profile. Anyone mature enough follow the story 4get who u support. Those that don’t want to follow can go hang….

  48. Maestro u are a gud dreamer with yo HH.4 get yo rantings Yo HH has to learn politics first.U ar not even ashamed to say wat u say with yo HH.Viva pabwato,Sata we luv u.

  49. Gentlemen, lets face facts here, sata’s promises carry sense. Big mines have just been opened in Solwezi, Oil dicovered in the nearby area, doesn’t this need an airport. We can make N/W a big province by fufilling Sata’s promises.

  50. THE PEOPLE OF NORTH-WESTERN PROVINCE HAVE BEEN INSULTED BY SATA FOR A LONG TIME NOW.JUST BECAUSE HE WANTS THERE VOTE HE HAS VISITED THE PROVINCE NOW.IF U HAVE A SHORT MEMORY VOTE FOR HIM . HE WILL ABANDONE U WHEN HE COMES TO POWER.

  51. Dont remain behind imwe bantu! Pliz… ask Kansanshi mines they are already in negotiations with Government over upgrading Solwezi airport to an international one. maybe when you talk of Zambezi airport.

  52. Zambians lets look at what the person can do instead of talking of useless politics of tribes and what others have said about this person or anything that has nothing to do with capabilities and abilities.

  53. YES[ MR.BIN ] IS RIGHT, SATA HAS FOUL LANGUAGE WHEN IT COMES TO CERTAIN TRIBES. THE SHOULD BE REMINDED THAT HIS THUGGERY LANGUAGE CAN COST HIM THE PRESIDENCE.AND I DONT THINK HE IS THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THAT TOP OFFICE , HE IS JUST A THUG.

  54. I thought HH was a dreamer but Ouch … Sata is even a bigger dreamer. Honestly, these politicians are all a bunch of liars!!! Airporats in Solwezi ?? Sata what we need is every Zambian to have the basic necessities … Water, Sanitation, Education and Medicine (if you don’t know them). Stop promising us JUNK!!! What would one need an airport for when I can’t get to the airport??

  55. All you guys writing about SATA doing this and that … I am sorry for you. Whilst I agree with you that Sata might have done the things you claim he has I also disagree that he is the best candidate for the job. I think Sata had his chance and he could have given us all his promises when he was District Governer mu UNIP, Minister of port folio muMMD. It is time for new blood and more dynamic ideas that can run Zambia. Give the new generation a chance else we will be with the old till death do us part!!!!

  56. so guys you want a president with no plan and ppromise. Umwana ashenda atasha nyina ukunay ubwali. You should see other countries how they are building their infrastructure how fast housing complesxws shoping more and how air ports have impoved a short priod I have been in South Africa and Botswana it is incredible. Nomba ba Zedian mufwaya fye ukuchula with low standard of living mule bako opotimistic Hpefull VOTE SATA PaBWATOOOOOOO

  57. Does Sata know what he is talking about, reducing millie meal to K25,000? What type of economics is he working on. What he should realise is that if by chance he takes over, the Kwacha will drop nose dive and K25,000 will be nothing.

    Facts are that HH has bigger catchment area compared to Sata and will certainly do better than Sata. Problem is that PF have no ability to analyse issues. Thanks to Given Lubinda’s experience in UPND PF campaigns are slightly systematic now.

  58. DIDN’T BA SATA INSULT PETER COTTAN OF NATIONAL MILLING WEN MEALIE MEAL PRICE WAS REDUCED BY A MERE K2000? NOW HE SAYS HE WILL REDUCE A BAG TO K25000. WAT ARE WE GOING TO BELIEVE NOW LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, CAN SOMEONE TELL ME PLIZ

  59. How can Sata reduce the price of mealie meal to K25,000 when the market price of fertiliser is over K250,000 per 50kg bag? He is joking that’s cheap Politics.

  60. When someone grows old, even their thinking become like that of a child that is to what all these fake promises are pointing to. The old man will need more advisors than Ministers if he pulls through! Conflicting promises … how do you undertake all these projects at the same time reduce the main source of revenue -taxes??????

  61. # 88 walasa … does this man really know what we need and what should be priority? Airports to be used by who in North Western Province which is one of the provinces with high levels of poverty. The infrastructure that is needed more in such areas are roads to help in the movement of agro inputs and outputs! Mwilasatasatafye!

  62. How long does this man think the term of office of the republican President lasts? 44 years of independence we don’t have all those things and them he thinks he will bring them in 7 years (assuming he wins this time and in 2011 and assuming he will be there too!). Yes, we need development; infact we need it urgently but the rate at which you’re promising it to come cannot be anything but lies!

  63. dont doubt my frend 96. what do you want him to tell you. do you want him to say i will destroy the economy???????????? his teling you wat he feels he will do so why doubt. atleast give him a chance and if he fails remove him. i think zambians are used to poverty and ugly towns thats why if you are told of good things you think its a dream. my frend come 1 november we will be saying welcome to the good life.! sata is gona bring that…………..he will be on TV as your president!!!!!!!!!!!!! believe it or not.

  64. Any Sane person can see that HH cant win this election. Its between SATA and REJECTED BALLOT with Sata carrying the day emphatically.

  65. Sata failed to attract the crowd in Solwezi yesterday coz HH in town all pipo went to HH’s rally. HH’s in Solwezi is a clear testmony that whether PF likes or not HH is winning the elections.

    You are blinded by the post who have continued to only show Sata’s rallies. I wished you have seen HH’s rally in Kabwe the same time Sata had his. HH’s rally was the best in Kabwe.

    Yes Sata a good rally yesterday in Chingola while HH one of the beggiest gathering this country has ever had in years except HH’s at Mpenzeni park in 2006.PF Should learn read widely and see beyond your bid noses. Im told shesheke has been hit with HH fever right now.We have now seen HH’s rallis.VIVA HH and VIVA UPND.

  66. We have just Kaponya in Mumbwa town trying to make noise while flashing their fighting symbol and pipo are not responding coz they are not interested. Pipo are just waiting for HH’s rally on Monday.
    PF will get less than 500 votes in Mumbwa. Go and waste your money hiring buses in strongholds on the UPND.Mumbwa and Central province is the for JANZA and the Janza is doing very very well. VIVA UPND

  67. VIVA HH!! WE ARE BEHIND YOU. WE DO NOT MAKE NOISE AT ALL BUT WE JUST VOTE!! AND THANKS ZNBC FOR BRINGING OUT ALL THOSE TERRIBLE RANTINGS THAT PEOPLE MAY HAVE FORGOTTEN ABOUT THE SNAKE!! ZAMBIA FORWARD BACKWARDS NEVER!!

  68. How do we determine a lie? sata needs a chance to prove himself worthy of want he promises zambians.Though speech is not deed we shall prove this english saying wrong.Sata dont dissapoint us we love you.
