Vice President Inonge Wina has arrived in Mansa Luapula Province en-route to Samfya District on a two-day working visit.

The Vice President will also drum up support for Patriotic Front (PF) candidate Anthony Kasandwe in the August 6 Bangweulu parliamentary Constituency by election.

Mrs Wina arrived at Mansa airport at exactly 11: 20 hours aboard a Zambia Air Force plane.

She was accompanied by Luapula Province Minister Brigadier General Benson Kapaya.

The vice president was received by Home Affairs Minister Davies Mwila, Community Development Mother and Child Health Minister Emerine Kabanshi and Defence Deputy Minister Christopher Mulenga.

Others to receive the Vice President were Luapula Province Permanent Secretary Boniface Chimbwali, PF Luapula province Chairperson Nixon Chilangwa, PF party officials and Heads of Government department.

ZANIS reports that the Vice President is expected to address three rallies in Bangweulu Constituency.

The Bangweulu seat fell vacant after the death of PF Member of Parliament Chifita Matafwali.

And Rural communities in far flung areas will not be neglected under Government’s development agenda, Vice President Inonge Wina has said.

Ms Wina was speaking in Chishikishi area of Samfya District where she went to campaign for the Patriotic Front’s candidate in next week’s Bangweulu Constituency by-election Anthony Kasandwe.

The seat fell vacant following the death of Patriotic Front (PF) member of parliament Chifita Matafwali.

She said the creation of new districts was a deliberate move intended to make public services available to the public as they became centres of development.

“Some people may say there is not much development here but we are asking you to give us another MP because our development plans are on course,” she said.

Government had in the first phase concentrated on connecting districts and provinces under the Link Zambia 8000 project.

The next phase would see roads in areas like Chishiskishi worked while electrification under the rural electrification authority was also in the pipeline.

Ms Wina said the Government also valued education and wanted to see all children in rural areas a have access to schools.

The community of Chishikishi which is on the shores of Lake Bangweulu relies mainly on fishing as a source of its livelihood.

The vice president however, urged the community to take advantage of Government programmes that empowered vulnerable groups like women and youths to engage in other avenues of survival because of the depleted fish number in the water bodies of Luapula Province.

Present at the rally where senior Pf officials that included secretary general Davis Chama, his deputy Mumbi Phiri, ministers Benson Kapaya and Emerine Kabanshi.

    • Does that poster says vote for Edgar Lungu somewhere. If it doesn’t then it’s not campaign poster but awareness posters . Mwanawasa has similar posters everywhere but they were not meant for campaigns.

  2. Government resources being wasted again! In Zambia, resources, including borrowed ones, are only sufficient to cover such activities of transporting the President, VP and party cadres to bye areas, and running a few graders around the bye areas. Is the country too big to develop in a more structured manner; can the politicians admit this fact, so that we know and lose the little hope we have had of nationwide development one day? The whole VP going to work in a bye area for two days sure; shame!

  3. Pf ‘s main preoccpation is winning the 2016. They dont care about the stalled projects and the worsening economy. Moneys being borrowed will just be channelled towards pf campaigns.

  4. It’s good to know that mama Inonge is working while traveling. Unlike her boss ka Lungu who is just lounging around and lazily going all over the place engaging in all sorts of debauchery, except doing any real work.

  6. This Inonge Wina has no shame. She is lying to the people that phase one development was to link major towns and cities by road, and phase two will now go to areas like Chishikishi. These are lies and this fake woman knows it. The PF government is broke and has no money to develop the many districts Sata created without thinking. Why is this woman telling lies? Is she morally upright? Deep down she knows that what she is saying is not true. Why tell lies to the people of God? And all the ministers have gone to Luapula. They have taken so much cash and that’s why they all go to camp wherever there is a by-election. So much cash changes hands and these ministers take advantage and keep the bulk of it. Do you remember the Willy Nsanda issue where so much cash was found in his house?
