MMD Vice Presidential aspiring candidate Bowman Lusambo on Friday spent time interacting with vulnerable households in Ndola’s Kabushi constituency as part of his familiarisation tours in the area.

Mr Lusambo who is also MMD National Youth Secretary donated various items to 22 selected households drawn from Kabushi’s eight wards.

Some of the items donated include a wheelchair for a 75 year old resident of Masala who is unable to walk, food items for a family that recently lost their property due to fire, made a cash donation to a lady suffering from advanced Parkinson’s disease in Lubuto area.

A number of food packs containing sugar, cooking oil, Mealie meal, washing paste and other essential items were also handed out to elderly women in Kabushi constituency.

The recipients were identified after a through two week screening process that was conducted in partnership local NGO’s, the Church and local political leaders.

The donations took over nine hours to be distributed to all the deserving recipients.

In interviews with local media, Mr Lusambo explained that he was compelled to extend a helping hand to the suffering masses in Kabushi in order to lighten their burdens.

‘We are not saying we are here to solve all their problems. These people are suffering but we know there is joy in giving and we would rather share the little we have with our people here when they are still alive than coming to mobilise transport for the burials,’ Mr Lusambo declared.

He also clarified that he is not making the donations to woo voters ahead of the 2016 elections after declaring his intentions to contest the Kabushi parliamentary seat.

‘I grew up here, I got moved by what I saw and I decided to help. There is nothing political about giving although our leaders that are elected to serve our people should do more to help them,’ he said.

He added, ‘What we have in the area is pure lack of leadership. You find elderly women over 80 years of age who have been neglected to fend for themselves. How do you expect a woman that old to fend for herself? The local leadership should help link her up to some social protection programme for the elderly run by the Government, now that link is missing in Kabushi and that is why i say there is no leadership here. We would like to change that.’

Mr Lusambo also used the visitations to mingle and interact with local people and engaged them about ways of developing the constituency.

Over the weekend, Mr Lusambo will officiate at the inaugural Bowman Lusambo football tournament to played at Milemu grounds in Kabushi constituency where 12 teams drawn from the eight wards will battle it out for the K40, 000 rich tournament.

  1. This ***** is suspended in MMD so on which party wil he stand? He thinks the chaps in PF will just let him through the back door. Please stop fooling the poor we all know you are campiagning. The problem is that Nevers Mumba is very weak hence his members doing what they want.

  2. He was compelled to donate in exchange for votes, who the hell helps for free in Zambia anymore! Why do people ask the media to accompany them when they go make donations if it is genuine. We just have a bunch of pretenders aspiring for recognition and positions.
