President Michael Sata meets with traditional leaders at State House

President Michael Sata, yesterday met 10 Nsenga chiefs from Eastern Province.

The chiefs who attended the closed – door meeting which lasted for over an hour included senior chief Luembe, senior chief Mburuma, chief Sandwe, chieftainess Nyanje, chief Nyamphande, chieftainess Mwape, chief Mumbi, chieftainess Mwanjabantu, chief Ndake, chief Nyalugwe and some members of the Nsenga Cultural Association.

During the meeting, the traditional leaders who spoke through chief Nyamphande praised the President for taking a bold step by revoking the recognition of Mr. Everson Mumba as senior chief Kalindawalo of the Nsenga people.

The chiefs stated that President Sata’s decisive and swift action on this long-standing dispute has freed the Nsenga people and brought dignity as well as harmony among the chiefs and traditional elders in Nsenga land.

They also expressed concern on the numerous border disputes between chiefdoms and requested that Government makes available boundary maps for chiefdoms to traditional leaders.

In response, President Sata said there was need for the Government and the people to respect chiefs and that traditional leaders should be included, and be at the centre of national development.

The Head of State directed the Minister of Education Dr. John Phiri to expedite the process of construction secondary schools in chiefdoms as per promise by the Patriotic Front (PF) Government.

He said the PF Government was determined to ensure that sufficient resources are allocated to rural areas to facilitate the development of schools, hospitals, chief’s palaces and roads among others.

President Sata advised deputy ministers and members of parliament to develop a habit of visiting chiefdoms whenever parliament goes on recess to assist in speeding up developmental projects.

The meeting was also attended by justice minister Hon. Wynter Kabimba, defence minister Hon. Geoffrey Mwamba, home affairs minister Hon. Edgar Lungu, agriculture minister Hon. Emmanuel Chenda, chiefs affairs minister Prof. Nkandu Luo, education minister Dr John Phiri, local government deputy minister Hon. Forrie Tembo, mines deputy minister Hon. Charles Zulu, agriculture deputy minister Hon. Nicholas Banda, chiefs affairs deputy minister Hon. Susan Kawandami, Eastern Province minister Hon. Malozo Sichone, Muchinga Province minister Hon. Charles Banda and Eastern Province permanent secretary Emmanuel Mwamba among others.

    • Interesting how people who sleep hungry everyday claim to be ruling. You are busy strapping the streets of some town in Zambia with white lips devoid of any saliva in your mouth and claim we are ruling us, how? When you sllep hungry everyday. It is only those in the family tree that are enjoying. The rest of you whether you are Bemba, Bemba speaking or not are just suffering. Which tribes were affected most with the recent shortage of mealie meal, is it not the so called “ruling you” people. Ati mukafwa nechikonko, what rubbish! You are the one who will die of hunger man. Just go and do smoe shifting cultivation now before it is too late.

  5. Clueless Sata thinks popularity is earned by bribing traditional rulers. You’re just wasting your time. You’ll will booted out on account of your rampant tribalism, food shortages and general incompetence in all areas of public policy!

    • You need to learn Bemba migration history to understand how Nsengas came to have Chief Mwape and Chief Mumbi – these are definately not Nsenga names.

  8. I wonder how productive these meetings are. If instead of just discussing vague promises they really looked what at what is obtaining on the ground in rural areas, address the challenges that continue to impoverish their subjects and with the president forge a tenable way forward then it would be beneficial to be holding such.
    But our chiefs like state house tea too much, its like going through those state house gates just freezes all rational thinking, and the only thing that matters are the gift bundles they come out with.

  9. chieftainess Mwape, chief Mumbi,

    So not everyone going by a Bemba name is actually Bemba. But tribalists on these blogs don’t know this. Every someone with a Bemba name commits a crime then it’s “Bembas are thieves” ignorant of the fact they could be Ngoni, Tonga, Lozi, Congolese, Nigerian or Tanzanian

    • Not all those who claim to be Bemba are actually Bemba. Check there NRC’s you will find that most the people who claim to be Bemba are from Luapula. The people of Luapula have an identity problem. They would rather be called Bemba than Lunda, Chishinga, Bwile, Tubulu etc. I like the Namwanga. They never claim to be Bemba. They will flatly tell you I am not Bemba. But from Luapula, awe mukwai. These Congolese Luapulans are a disgrace.

  10. So this is the experience leader people voted for. One who thinks being president is surmoning chiefs, swearing in civil servants and ministers, cant even understand the value of cabinet input and only pops up at by-election campaigns. What a shame.

  11. King ukwa thinks bribing the chiefs will secure his second term in plot one ( criminals paradise) but his in for a rude shock as chiefs also just have one vote.

  12. The only thing one can share with chiefs is night flying skills and technology, thats wat they know epela. How much is it costing the government to assemble all thez night riders to Lusaka???? Is that the development the pipo suffering in their chiefdom want??? Parading at state house wont pay farmers of their funds for maize they have supplied to FRA. It wont even take fertilizer to the farmers who grow the maize we eat. Chiefs are partners in dvelopment if they work with their subjects who i thnk can be so happy to see Sata meet them at their points of need which in this case is their areas.

  13. Chiefs have lost their source of income as they have sold all their land for a bottle of lutuku and have now turned to Mr more money in the pocket. Rupiah Banda cried but Micheal Sata will faint with his pants wet and full come 2016.

  14. I see 10 more districts being created. By the time HH figures out what Sata is up to in 2016 it will be election time. Knowing Sata all these districts will have basic infrastructure by then.

  16. The PF ministers still looking in impoverished. Don’t they know why to buy clothes like the MMD? Sata should deliberately send his ministers abroad for shopping.
    Chiefs are dressed better than ministers.
