PF led council has failed to develop Ndola, MMD

Headlines PF led council has failed to develop Ndola, MMD

pfsupportersThe Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD) in Ndola says the Patriotic Front led council has failed to bring about any tangible development in Ndola.

Speaking in an interiew in Ndola today ahead of the mayoral elections slated for this month-end, MMD Ndola District Youth Chairman Patrick Kayamba said the PF led council has failed to implement any developmental programmes in the city despite the massive funds channeled to the council by government.

Mr. Kayamba said roads in the city have remained deplorable and traders have continued trading in undesignated places because they have not been allocated stands in the legally recognized markets.

He said the MMD has since embarked on a road rehabilitation programme to protect the lives of road users from road accidents due to dangerous potholes found on most of the roads in Ndola town.

He said the rehabilitation of roads has already started in Pamodzi Ward in Chifubu Constituency and will be extended to other constituencies.

Mr. Kayamba said the district MMD party funded rehabilitation involves both road grading and filling-up of pot holes.

He regretted the fact that the MMD has less councilors in the district to ensure the installation of an MMD mayor in the forth coming mayoral election to enhance development.

Nevertheless, Mr. kayamba said the MMD has agreed to suport a PF mayoral candidate who can easily work with the MMD in the district so that development can be brought to the city.

Zambia is slated to hold mayoral elections on the 30th of this month and all Copperbelt District councils are run by PF councilors.

  1. Great stuff MMD and all the best as you endeavour to serve the masses of suffering Zambians in Ndola and on the Copperbelt.

    On “The Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD) in Ndola says the Patriotic Front led council has failed to bring about any tangible development in Ndola”, I also remember overhearing some characters like ba-kaponya or so complaining in Lusaka Town that PF had failed to develop Lusaka in 90 days as it promised in the 2006 elections and they will be considering voting for better people I suppose in the 2011 elections.

    I hope the MMD momentum in Ndola will quickly reach all parts of the Copperbelt with the chasing of father Bwalya from Ichengelo Radio Station.

    We need serious people to lead Zambia in 2011 and PF has failed us terribly in all councils its in.

  2. Get yo facts straight am a resident in ndola u dont know wat u ar talking about. just keep on believing wat u read. roads ar being repaired it started wen Levy was still alive. Kabelenga road wer the presidential guest house is, the repairs wer that bad wer by the have cancelled the contracts for those guys and minsundu road has been done partly by chaines and fqm is yet to be finished. Lets wait for the elections and see wat will follow. Guys from the council under accounts dept 90% are on suspension over the same funds the ar attending court cases. Lets just wait ndola is amoungst the best towns in zambia having good roads pliz

  3. Inside the B.O.A.T ! But 2011 we want to see a new Presido Candidate. Because at the rate the ‘freedom fighters’ are booking out….kaya

  4. What development has MMD brought to Zambia as a whole since they came to power? Lets be serious Please.

  5. So Dora has resigned? I guess the pressure was from State House. Otherwise the girl was not going to go on her own.

  6. Its a pity some chaps are still in favour of the MMD govt even when they have failed the people and the country. MMD has no brains to drive this country forward. The MMD chaps have to be stopped because they will ruin everything. We need new leaders with brains!

    Dora should have resigned a long time ago before her name was tarnished!

  7. Ngefipuba fiLifwekeke, Cosmo katondo PhD and rev wabufi, they have failed to save our sister? Mwanya bamakaka.

  8. Now that Madam Siliya has resigned without criminal charges, it leaves her with the constitutional right to be reapointed, relocated or aspire for service for any position potentially even at a wider national role. Under such circumstance, the President’s discrectionary decision power is open.Good luck to her.Interesting is another MMD loyalist is moving in the ministry.

  9. It is true. Dora has resigned.

    Lusaka Times you are slacking in your journalism. Don’t forget this is a free market economy and your competitors will get your frequent readers away from you which will take away the hits and will sway advertisers away. Pick it up please. I expected you to be the first to report on this.

    Lusaka Times, get your house in order.

  10. Ya Pamanzi, The tribunal failed to establish a single crimininal conduct to warrant ACC or Police charges.Breach of the constitution is without material gain from the conduct is not criminal.That is simple elementary level legal reasoning.It is very important that alot of you consider signing up for basic law classes or read some constitutional and criminal law books.

  11. Dora resigns, but RB says the Attorney general’s office needs to be rearranged, i only hope he doesnt mean firing the AG/SG

  12. The tribunal failed to establish a single crimininal conduct act to warrant ACC or Police charges.Breach of the constitution without material gain under any conduct is not criminal.That is simple elementary level legal reasoning.It is very important that alot of our fellow citizens consider signing up for basic law classes or read some constitutional and criminal law books.

  13. Even editors at state media institutions should resign. They kept telling us Dora was cleared. Tepapa lelo?

  14. Ok, just found the info about ms Siliya’s resignation on Zambia Watch Dog…she tendered her resignation to the prez today.

    Just wait and see, they will now appoint her to go in foreign mission, mark my words.

  15. Sata is part of MMD failure….and why are these group of kampoyas so desperate to lead zambia.Gone are the days when the copperbelt deternmined everything for the country. i can’t imagine zambia under the leadership of sata.. there will NO freedom of any kind.

  16. I have just been previleged to read through the entire Tribunal report, i will be shocked if the breaches by the legal offices cited will have grounds to survive unless the codes have changed over the years. Under UNIP. Late Mwanawasa lost the same job under same grounds. There are some precedences to base this on.What defense will they mount to survive?.I foresee some of the new State counsels moving in.

  17. Guys,
    what is it that MMD has done to have the guts to point fingers at others? Beside, this issue started when the area MP called for the meeting to descuss the way forward which was unfortenatly desrupted by MMD cadres. I see a natural hatred by MMD which is aim at seeing their fellows down. they will do anything to turnish the image of PF. And if this is the case, then we are heading for disaster organised by some primitive MMD cadres who are untouchable by the judiciary forces. As for maestro fimo fimo, I don’t mind him much coz each time he comments on matters concerning PF, its alway negative no matter what. may be he is also a primitive seed of MMD.

  18. I have a question. You have 4 very productive farms in mandevu, kabwata, matero and munali, and then someone with 1 farm in Kanyama whose production has been going down since 2006 harvest tells you to abandon your farms and join him to defeat hunger. Would it not be very unwise of you to follow this unwise advice? Honestly i’m asking

  19. Iwe stripper, siliya did what she did but she was not wrong…she must be appointed into forein mission.. i thinks it just fair

  20. You people stop even thinking about siliya being appointed in foreign mission. She is a member of parliament representing her constituency. Therefore she will conitnue being an MP unless if she has also resigned being an MP also!

  21. # 29 and 30, Thats just fine if what you guys are saying is right. It’s just my opinion that someone who is guilty of wrong doing back home should not represent the country in any way…her record is tainted. The fact that she tendered a resignation voluntarily to me is a sign of pleading guilty.
    If she was not guilty, she would have hanged on to her position…only the guilty are afraid.

  22. The Zambian watchdog is really doing a great job for Zambians all over the world with breaking news. However, thanks to LT for providing this platform for discourse.

    Whatever the case I salute former Minister Dora Siliya and hope she will continue doing well in her endeavours including her MP job.

    Otherwise, all the best to the MMD in the Copperbelt as they re-gain control of the Province from the PF which has failed to perform since 2006 elections there especially in Ndola.

  23. She raped the supreme law. How I wish that ZNBC carrie a footed on her and she should proclaim viva voce that she was resigning because she misconducted herself

  24. Undertaker ubufi,who told you that Dora Siliya has resigned? That can be great news.Maestro you talked of pf failing.what has the upnd councilors done in Southern province.Dont you know that the way money is released by the government is something trick? As the government will always want to show that the opposition has failed.Cant you get it in your head? You whenever you hear pf negativity fills your entire being.

  25. But how the the MMD be so dafty? The government has a responsibility to develop the entire country just like they collect TAX from every zambian in gainful employment whether MMD, Opposition or independent. The government has a social responsibility contract with its citizens to upgrade the living standards of its people. The lack of development in Ndola and indeed the entire country has to be blamed on the government, who should be kicked out for lack of political and moral will to use national resources for their intended purposes.
    I hope the MMD loses the mayoral elections enmass.

  26. The whole circus only exposes how lame armchair critic and conspiracy is.Impeachment of the President over his prerogative to retain or relocate his minister who has breached the constitution to avert corruption but has not been adjudicated as having committed any criminal conduct is misplaced supposition. The point is there has been no evidence of criminal conduct mounting to any material gain.This leaves emotions take the toll, but to what value? There is constitutional ground or legislative qorum to impeach the President whatsoever. At the end of it, armchair activism of none voting block is exposed and weakened the more.

  27. JURIST,
    My bro’. Just serve your breadth to teach your children.this blogg is jammed with half brains whose pre occupation is not to drive points but to tell you how they are living in the so called diaspora or trying to convince you that zambia’s salvation lies in the hands of sata.can you imagine the folly of one coolie asking if goverment has provided the money for ndola city council to do the roads.man it is the duty of the incumbent councillors to moot ways of collecting revenue so has to renderservices to the community not just to use it for allowances
    Which just end up in cheap screws and heavy booze.

  28. iwe maestro tell us what your dying UPND has done in southern province? Besides its the party in power that should develop Ndola and the country at large.

  29. Apparently RB will reorganise the Attorney General’s Chambers in a bid to prevent a reoccurance of the confusion they caused that led to Dora ignoring the Attorney General’s advice on the MOU/RP Capital saga. Now this in a way, is a move to somewhat defend Dora and discredit the AG. This guy has no regard for his own judicial system… its a disgrace

  30. 36, Chewe the Virgin, go the mighty Southern Province and see for yourself the progress in towns and the City Livingstone.

  31. 42, Turi, why must I tell you? Don’t you have the capacity to read news on your own? Or go there to see for yourself?

  32. Ba Chairman (Patrick Kayamba) mwalasebana tatulandalanda ifyo you will be laughed by may people.

    Nine Vice Chairman obe.

  33. #2 UNDERTAKER Thats the point. You see Ka Teta will use everything in his power to frustrate councils held by the OPPOSITION. Best way is to transfer the collection of all income tax to the local authorities(Decentralization)who in turn will pay a certain %age to the Central Gvt. But as its this MMD will use our money to develop areas where they are assured of votes.

  34. #s 36 and 47 Chewe/Maestro. Stop playing in the hands of MMD by quarrelling in public. You why that Kachaimani is yapping. Unite and we shall find a solution for 2011

  35. Please leave Dora alone to to leak her wounds. She has been judged enough! When men are facing corruption charges its all in silence, now that it is a woman, everyone is shouting. Women are human just as men and can also make mistake, corrupt. No one is clean. What we need are good systems, strong institions, laws, solid leadership to prevent such.

  37. 51, Deja Vu, thanks and please tell this 30 year old Chewe to respect opinions by others and concentrate on his own opinions.

    Have a great day.

  38. Chikili maestro ulimbwa sana, Livingstone is developing becoz the MMd is making an effort and it has nothing to do with UPND if it had anything to with them that ud be stranrg coz the place is under ULP and Saki won in 2006 because he aligned himself with non tribalists…Pabwato. waba amanyami mukanwa

  39. 55 Nevers Mwanawakwimbwa, if what you have alleged about me by “Chikili maestro ulimbwa sana” is true, then what about you? Think you character before you write nonsense.
