  1. I really hope there’ll be no accusing fingures pointed at ECL. Like Dora has written somewhere, these are effects of decades of political treachery we’ve suffered. Thanks to the poster for highlighting such poverty reality and I pray that powers that be will seriously begin to work for the people!

  2. The biggest problem we have in our villages is that the Chiefs don’t know anything about development apart from waiting for government pay cheques, political bribes and allocating land to foreigners without thinking of the consequences. Chief are supposed to inculcate values in their communities such as hard work, avoiding early marriages, education, hygiene and sanitation etc. They have allowed adoption of MPs from towns who care nothing to be imposed on them and the end result is what we see. If they want an MP from the towns he or she must have a house there like GBM of Kasama so that they can be with them from time to time in order to benefit. On the other hand us towns people should start investing in our villages instead of just criticising the under development. Lets be proud of…

  3. The picture is the same for Mporokoso, Kaputa, Chinsali etc. and yet there have been claims that money is being taken from mining areas like Solwezi to develop these areas especially when Sata was alive. I have recently been to some of these places and I saw very little development – okay some funny university in Chinsali!

  4. This is my home ,Chief Chungu ,village Chakaba. People are had working the problem is road network. Chief Chungu is under Lupososhi constituency ,this people gave PF first MP in Zambian history.
    Mps are the problems rural areas are facing . They do not visit their consitituencies.

  5. Can one living in zambia please explain to us the economic malaise we are being bombereded with .
    I would like to know what situation it is that there is so much out cry about economy , or is it just in the minds of politicians since we know all has started in china .
    The whole world has been affected by the current situation. In china but to zambians they think it is lungu who is the problem.?
    If there is not enough water in lake cariba is it lungu if chinese economy slows down is it lungu.

  6. By the way Lusaka times editor; I notice the Canadian flag next to my name. I love Canada but I live in the U.S. Just a small correction if you don’t mind.

  7. These basic schools never change the govt is very quick to build new colleges, schools but hesitant to improve existing schools and universities in deplorable state!!
