President Edgar Lungu is this Saturday expected in Petauke district in the eastern province on a working visit.

This is according to the circular to all government institutions, NGOs, civil societies and business houses released yesterday and also obtained by ZANIS from the office of the District Commissioner in the area.

President Lungu will be in the district to launch the HE FOR SHE campaign, a campaign against gender inequality targeting male Chiefs, in Chief Nyamphande’s Chiefdom.

The Head of State who is the guest of honour is also expected to visit Nyampande GBV project after the launch.

The Ministry of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs in collaboration with the UNDP are spearheading the launch.

Meanwhile, most of the invited Chiefs from across the country have started arriving in the district in readiness for the event.

The launch will be preceded by a workshop to be held at Chimwemwe lodge on Friday.

  3. The whole president travelling a long distance to launch a gender inequality campaign. What surprises me and disappoints me is that, president Lungu comes out so strongly on non-issues while ignoring and staying mute on big economic and political issues about which every citizen normally expects the president to speak and give direction. Instead of travelling to that gender inequality launch (which a PS, Minister or Veep can do), he could have done well to hold a press conference and highlight govt’s position and direction on these critical issues: Energy, Economy-weak, Education. The president needs to assure and give confidence to the zambian people that his administration is on top of things. The piecemeal and contradictory info we get from ministers is not enough.

  6. Petauke is just as important as any other town in Zambia! Gracing at that function is NOT the ONLY thing the President will be doing there but also hear and take note of the problems the residents of Petauke are facing. Lusaka is NOT Zambia. What’s wrong with you people kanshi? Hatred chabe?

    • People in Petauke have councillors and MP with whom they can discuss their problems extensively, and the MP then needs to show people govt’s policies and strategies available to tackle those problems. So if the president is told the problems, then what? A wise president would refer the people to their elected representatives.

    • It is not about the importance of Petauke. It is about the president spending his office hours on issues that really require the presidency. launching a gender inequality campaign does not require the president.

  8. The president needs to crisscross the whole country – say all you want. If anything, I expect bloggers to advise on places in the country that the president needs to visit in the country.
