President Michael Sata

President Michael Sata has created six more districts in Western and North-western Provinces.

President Sata named the new districts as Sikongo, Nalolo, Sioma, Mitete and Luampa in Western province and Manyinga in North-western province.

The President said this when he swore in Ministry of Labour and Social Security Permanent Secretary Trevor Kaunda and Muchinga Province Commissioner of Police Lemmy Kajoba at State House today.

President Sata has urged newly appointed Labour Permanent Secretary Trevor Kaunda to be sharp in the execution of his duties as issues to do with labour were very porous in the country.

He lamented that some Italians at a company which he did not name but based in Ndola were not paying Zambian workers well.

And President Sata directed Minister of Sports Chishimba Kambwili to ensure that a stadium is constructed in Western province.

He also called for the construction of a new university at Namushakende in Western Province and proposed that this institution of higher learning should be named King Lewanika University.

  1. This man amuses me…. Truly he’s a chimbwi no plan…. These pronouncements are done without proper planning…. Instead of addressing serious issues, he’s busy creating more districts… For what? Shame on Zambia….

  3. Just a word of caution sir, be careful in the way you make announcements?  Remember that there also other provinces which need universities, don’t take those provinces for granted sir, coz they can rise against you if you are not careful sir. The stadium in western , how is it going to be utilized? Is it not going to be a white elephant?  Build the stadium in Kitwe wher it will be well utilized. Its not just for a matter of appeasing people. Sir trade well in your pronouncements.

    Peace and Prosperity to Mother Zambia.

    • Bushe ifi nalanda fyakupita? Let me put it another way: You want the stadium meant for Western Province to be in Kitwe therefore implying Mongu doesn’t need a stadium. Iam telling you that all provinces need stadia. Mongu doesn’t have a stadium and Sata wants to build one there but you want this to be transferred to Kitwe which alread has four stadia. Kitwe can wait

  5. Frankly, the people of Western Province have long been ignored. Many people go around insulting Lozi’s for wanting secession but if Presidents kept developing Western Province consistently, this would not have been an issue.

  6. This is definely madness. There is no other explanation. Are these pronouncements budgeted for in 2013? This country requires a leadership that is rational, objective and practical. Mr. President, Zambia is not your farm or house where you can carry out renovations and your whim. You are raping the constitution, the budget and the Zambian people. Please be systematic and have plans for whatever is to be done so that you are able to follow them through. Nangu nibu man of action this is not the way

  8. What’s this fascination with stadiums and universities? People are still dying from preventable diseases and UTH is still a “chilongoma” and you focus on building monumental institutions! The day I hear that mothers are not dying of childbearing complications, that is when I will support building stadiums in far flung places. Yaba!

  9. He can as well declare a university should be built in each province or even district. But as they always say that africans can never develop their land because of either luck of planning (CNP) or just implementing projects that are not planned for (CNP). At the end of the PF rule, the tax payers will be back to servicing $7billion.

I guess advisors are less visionary and react on impulse without thinking like the one b eing advised. Very sad for my country. We need a normal kleader who can think ahead of all his decisions. Last year, the opposition complained that governmet had not put enough money for agricultural pogrammes such as purchases of maize, today farmers are languishing, no koney and it is raiing. Can we have anormal leader please? Is hipimo still alive?

  16. You are a shallow minded person who thinks development should be skewed along the line of rail. Every part of zambia needs development in all aspects including sport. Those pronouncements are welcome and long overdue. However, there is need to plan well in terms of attaching budgetary allocations to such declarations.

  17. The PF Government under the experienced, inspirational leadership of His Excellency the President Mr. Michael C. Sata is on course to achieve prosperity for the people of Zambia. All Zambians who love their country and its people should rally behind the Patriotic Front and contribute to transforming this great country. Enclave leaders and visionless pastors have no programme for this country apart from promoting selfish narrow interests. Viva Sata, Viva PF

  18. Good move Mr President, actually each province requires a stadium for social activities. Youths need such facilities to keep them active. A university for N/W is very much welcome. More Districts will also enhance development in that province.

  20. Thumbs up! Mr President.

    It is sad that for some people, the line of rail is Zambia, full stop.

    It is not President Sata’s fault, if faults are to be found, that the other institutions are in a bad state of disrepair. This should not be the reason why we should not build new facilities.

    Someone here is suggesting the building of a stadium is Kitwe, what is wrong with the one in Ndola? Do we want a stadium in every compound?

    Good decisions by the government.

  21. Mr. Presdo I wonder if those places named in western province you have been there or not. Personaly I have worked in those areas, reverse your prononouncement like for Nalolo, mitete,Luampa and Sioma. This pure madness, work on Katundu -Watopa road first and put a bridge on the zambezi river in lukulu and then create mitete as a district. Sir your pronouncements will make you fall.Update the nation on so far districts you have created what development have you created, dot just creates districts for making jobs for your friends and inlaws. Never fool a lozi persons, we dont nid a stadium, we want jobs.Mr.Presdo wake up, this is not time to play drama or jokes, think. You want to make sioma as district when you are failing to connect sioma high school on national few meters away from pilons

  23. Kanti ona litaba za mandwani ze za University ni 6 districts kona kwena ya lekile Satani Litunga. If the Litunga accepts this, he truly deserves to be dethroned, for plain stupidity. I mean, has Sata not been part of three govts that failed to develop the Mongu Kalabo road? Was he not the one who promised to restore the BA64? And all these districts, where is the money going to come from to develop them when he can’t allocate enough to Lewanika hospital or the current Mongu Stadium which still remains unfinished? Why should he propose the name Lewanika, we have enough places named after the man for heaven’s sake, it can as well be named Mundia Nalumino or indeed Sibitwane, leave it to the people there to decide. This KK stupidity of Mulungushi name for everything must stop!

  24. I would never trust a Zambian teacher, let alone a school/University
    Here in UK, UNZA is extremely undermined, and most of the graduates 
    Have failed to make it here
    I almost cried when I never made it there but after doing my research I found out
    Great colleges with better pedigree waited here in UK, I have made it have had better 
    Education background and therefore this new University to be created is just another one 
    Who credentials and graduates will be laughed at
    Thanks

    • Who told you UNZA is undermined???? UNZA has produced great men and women. even CBU is has produced great men and women. You have nothing good to talk about Zambia, yet u was born here and lived in this very nation. This issue is nt about you UK universities, where graduates mop and clean toilets. You ought to be thankful that u Zambian. You brag about being there and talk shit about Zambia. You r a strange one! And a very frustrated girl. You enjoy places that the owners have developed and yet you have the gats to talk about about your nation. I pitty you!

  25. Where is the money to fund the construction of the university and stadium coming from? Hope we are not going into further debt.Where is the money to pay the lecturers salaries going to come from seeing the lecturers in the existing universities are already poorly compensated. I think this is meant to excite the PF cadres the way the 90days promises excited PF cadres.

  30. It is just stupid to congratulate a person for announcing that he will give you food when there is scarcity of food. There is scarcity of development but lots of stealing. An announcement is certainly not development but an intention. And intentions are hardly fulfilled.
    Only Muchinga province is receiving money though not approved by parliament yet (probably I missed it). The other prouncements remain cold and forgotten.

  33. It seem this President is preoccipied with the creation of districts. Are these districts planned for? It seems most these developmental projects are by presidential decree. I hope we will not wake up one day to find there more districts than citizens! The recently created districts such as Chikankata, shibuyunji and Rufunsa have not received adequate funding and the man is busy creating more districts. It seems planning has been thrown out of the window. Appeasement has now taken the place of planning.

  34. Mr. Sata,

    We really dont care whether you create 10 more Districts,these new pronounced districts are ILLEGAL. You have no powers in Barotseland…Actually Barotseland joins other countries that laugh and take Northern Rhodesia for a failed state..you really dont deserve to be President…You and your Police Officers have now turned the Northern Rhodesian Statehouse into a dagga smoking area..plot 1 for this matter…ohh its circus after circus!!! Barotseland is for the Lozis and not foreigners like you..when will you come to terms with these facts? FYI we are already putting the necessary modalities in place and we shall be announcing our legitimate provinces not districts! God bless Barotseland.

  35. Uuh! Just wondering. Two districts across the Zambezi, road started in 1975, not yet constructed, what is this? On a serious note, let MCS,complete the construction of Mongu Kalabo road . That will easily pave way to Angola and its sea ports. Transport would have been emproved. University? Thats is fine. Infact the locals were already planning to build one with their own resources. Your Majesty, this concerns your people, please give guide lines.

    Next will be Lukona, Sihole, Nalikwanda, Nalwamba, Ushaa, hey so many. More DCs.

  36. Good work. The only fear i have is, ARE THESE PLANS GOING TO BE IMPLEMENTED? ARE THEY BUDGETED FOR? WHY DIDN’T WE GET THESE PRONOUNCEMENTS DURING THE NATIONAL BUDGET SPEECH? Surely if the PF Govt had a focus they would have outlined these issues in their budget as it would have made them more popular and more organised. But it appears only the president knows about these things. Development needs to be spread across the country and all provinces need these facilities. However, western province has been so neglected that there is nothing to talk about there. The president promised the people of western province that he would honour the BRA 64 but it turned out that it was a campaign promise. And now these pronouncements again. If they won’t be fulfiled this will be receip for anarchy.

    • In China there are roads, schools and universities build every day. Do you think the national budget should be reduced to pronouncements of projects? There is funding allocated to education and sports development – universities and stadia are in there. You really do not need the minister of finance to say “and we are going to mend 1,299,988,837,747,676,655 pot holes”, do you?

  40. OPEN LETTER TO MR. SATA:
    In my opinion, you can create as many districts as you want. The question is, what are you doing with the current issues i.e, high inflation and unemployment rates, lawlessness, disease to mention a few?

    See, this is one thing I dont understand about you sir. From my observation, it seems you are good at bandaging over issues.
    We voted for you because we believed you could change the economic climate in Zambia and not pretend to be working by creating more districts. I just don’t understand your obsession with districts.
    Surely mr President, you can do better things with your time. Clearly, many of us who believed in you are starting to doubt your sanity in some of these decisions you’ve made while in office. Remember, WE ARE WATCHING YOU sir!

ANY # 4 WE UNDERSTAND SOME OF YOU DON’T KNOW THESE THINGS. IN ALL PF’S CAMPAIGNS THEY EMPHASISED ON THIS DEVOLUTION. MAYBE AGAIN YOU DID NOT KNOW WHAT DEVOLUTION MEANT.

MORE DISTRICTS WILL DEFINITELY TAKE POWER TO THE PEOPLE AND THE STADIUM WILL ENCOURAGE YOU TO BE INVOLVED IN SPORTS AND THE LOCAL COUNCIL WILL MAKE REVENUE WHEN PROPERLY MANAGED BY CONTINUOUSLY HOLDING EVENTS IN THE STADIUM. CREATION OF DISTRICTS, THE CONTRUCTION OF BOTH STADIUM AND UNIVERSITY WILL ALL CREATE MASSIVE EMPLOYMENT FOR SKILLED AND NON-SKILLED WORKERS. VIVA PF VIVA SATA.

Kaunda was a teacher and built schools for the most part, Chiluba was a bus conductor and he removed duty on buses which resulted in increased transport, Levy was a lawyers and increased salaries for lawyers making them the best paid profession in government.

The creation of new districts is a good idea but i wish the local people were consulted.Sikongo and Luampa is ok.Sioma and Nalolo spliting Senanga district is just too much as shangombo was also from senanga.The University is long over due and the president should be commended as long as there is enough money to construct it.

    • You’re very ignorant. Sioma is 100km from Senanga. Shangombo is 85km from Sioma. Western Province is the largest province in Zambia. It is 126 416 square kilometres. Sioma may have been part of Senanga but the distance is very long. Honestly how do you expect Sioma people to be administered from a hundred kilometres away in Senanga? Shangombo is also across the Zambezi , right in the southwest on the cuando river border with Angola. Ndate these areas are all 80 km + from each other. Western Province needs these districts. It is quite surprising that a presumably a local guy like yourself doesn’t even know the distances in your home area!

  53. Those that are opposing Sata are people who were comfortable with non-performing presidents. These are people who believe in having perpetual workshops and ‘capacity building seminars’ without any tangible products. I think Sata has confounded the minds of the simple non-performers. Zambia has a lot of money – most of it was being stolen. No we have a man would will use the money for development. Let’s support him.

  54. Necessary infrastructure should be built so that each of those new districts can generate much needed revenues so as to provide municiple services to residents. Creation of new districts will have no pratical benefits to anyone and their values will be confined to the documents on which they are written on. Therefore, it is a process, that is if it continues, which will end in itself not beyond thereof. Every new project of this magnitude should have a proper blueprint which clearly identifies the sources of revenues which are sustainable for proper running of essential services of residents. And the leadership should work out incentives which can attract correct industries which can better suit those particular environments.The question of how much money new districts can contribute to N

Our prayer is that all your ernemies have long life to see just what the Lord will do to Zambia. Lord God bless every blogger let your mercies speak for them and your divine favour locate them all.

  63. Good evening

    The big ship is sailing on, Just hold on steady and trust the captain.

    Even Joseph in the Bible and Dr. Martin Luther King were mocked as “Dreamers” but their dreams became reality one day.

  64. Joseph and Luther did not use state resources or money which was not their own. Thats the critical difference, this fool is gambling with tax payers money…..

  65. Those districts announced earlier have been covered under 2013 budget. These 6 may be funded from an external source or under 2014 budget…! Whichever way, know that this is not the end. More districts will be created. Finance minister Chikwanda actually mentioned this in parliament when presenting the 2013 budget. This is part of the decentralisation programme. Now, Zambia’s education sector has been pyramidal, with many primary schools, fewer secondarys and even few universities! PF…SELENI TUBOMBEKO!

  66. There goes the measly zambian budget being stretched to its limits by the costs of all the districts created by Sata.It appears Sata does things thru the “spur of the moment” without planning ahead.

  67. If at first an idea does not seem irrational then there is no hope for it (Albert einstein) , this is the president we need with ideas that sound impossible at first but which will be realised if we strive. We cant have a president who does not dare to dream and move forward, this man is a visionary, let him do his work.

  69. Will all these massive projects being directed to start all over the country have the money to support them? THere are new universities being proposed everywhere, I mean if these Universities were to be constructed Zambia would end up with more than 15 universities by 2016. We are struggling to fund UNZA and Copperbelt University, where is the money going to come from to construct and run all these big institutions being proposed. All these new districts to be upgraded, again they are all over the country. Do we have the money? Sometimes it is not that we love criticising the president, it’s just that when things stop making sense some of us can’t keep quiet. I’m sure he means well, but he should sometimes conduct feasibility studies on new projects. Anyway…

  71. I will only appreciate when the foundation is laid and the building at window level,otherwise it may be another way of luring support.

  72. I am trying to figure out thought processes here that are asserting that we need to MAINTAIN UNZA and CBU before putting up more universities!!??? I believe putting up new ones will DECONGEST the existing ones because some of the woes come from the fact that the capacity in these two institutions has been outstripped many times over. The lack of sustainability is in part a result of over-enrollment and a lack of prior oversight to actually expand on this capacity. The idea of creating new institutions as opposed to putting up more buildings in one place is a brilliant one in my view. Same goes for main hospitals. We need more UTH-sized health centres for the same reason!

  73. I am looking forward to a time when kids in a town will be able to get spoilt for choice as to which university to go to. I look forward to a kid completing all his education within reasonable distance and at good cost. This must surely inspire the increasing of these facilities. I also hope the private sector comes in with support and similar institutions.  This is doable and the PF is on the right track. Congratulations guys!

  75. He is trying to appease MaLozi. Unfortunately for him they are way ahead of him and they cannot fall for such silly tricks. The 90-day formula lie has made the Lozis and most Zambians wary of Sata and his PF party of kaponyas.

  81. people who have not traveled should not be quick to judge president sata, i don’t know about the universty and stadium as for the districts he has created in the regoin they are worth it. Zambians just love criticzing everything like mad people, learn to adopt to change unlike clining to the some things from i don’t know when, these are the same places that you always complain of saying the rulling part regs elecations from, the man finds a way of dealing with it you complain, FOOLS……………!

  84. Tanzania has eighteen(18) universities and sixteen(16) university colleges. This after fifty one years after independence in 1961. Almost all the thirty (31) one regions have a university or a university college each. Zambia has not done well in the field of higher education. The PF government is doing all that’s possible to redress this, and must be congratulated and encouraged by all well-meaning nationals. Abash doomsayers!

  86. Zambians are ignorant, dull and primitive. We need more universities to defeat this ubututu! We need to make sure that 75% of our pupils coming out of secondary school enter university. We need educated people, an educated generation that can compete favourably with any other in the world. THIS WILL INCREASE OUR LEVELS OF CONFIDENCE AND DEFEAT THE INFERIORITY COMPLEX of many Zambians. The new districts will bring services close to the people. See the vision? Let’s go PF.

    • I wonder whether people have been taking note of these promises. I have been reading and hearing Sata make these promises since he was I’m opposition, he keeps on making new ones even before fulfilling the old ones. I hope my fellow Zambians are not just getting too excited for nothing. We want to see real development . I can see a lot incomplete projects around the country that needs to be done or renovated and yet mr Sata is still singing politics, Shame. Does this man even consult anyone or it’s a one man show?

  88. What is wrong with creating more districts? You need decentralized decision making processes to speed up development at household level. Secondly, with or without more districts, development has to be delivered to all parts of the country. What the President is trying to achieve is the quick decision making processes by the people who are directly in touch with the communities. Lest support development!
