FIRST LADY ESTHER LUNGU-WORLD VISION ZAMBIA

First lady Esther Lungu has challenged corporate entities in Zambia to consider ploughing back their profits towards charity works.

And speaking earlier, LILA Vice Chairlady Asha Zumula pledged her association’s commitment to continue empowering vulnerable communities in the country.

Mrs Lungu says government alone cannot manage to intensify the fight against social and economic ills that has continued to grapple people in
communities.

The First Lady said this in Lusaka this evening during the fund raising dinner organized by the Lusaka Indian Ladies Association (LILA) at the Lusaka Golf Club.

She praised the Association for its charity work in assisting vulnerable people and institutions in society.

“Development of stakeholders such as LILA who desire to make a difference in people’s lives need to be supported so that together we
achieve the 2030 agenda for sustainable development,” Mrs. Lungu said.

The First Lady also presented trophies to deserving organizations including golfers who participated in the golf tournament.

And speaking earlier, LILA Vice Chairlady Asha Zumula pledged her association’s commitment to continue empowering vulnerable communities
in the country.

Lusaka Golf Club Captain Nsama Mataka disclosed that the Club has waived participation fees to encourage more women participation in
golf.

Mataka observed that golf is mostly for men while women were allegedly shunning it in preference to other sport disciplines.

The funds raised from the golf tournament would go towards the University teaching hospital, Cheshire homes, the elderly, water and sanitation projects
dotted around Lusaka.

  1. As a first lady I must say you are exemplary just as a decent wife. Just as you have stood with your husband in his misdeeds of eating peoples money which you wouldn’t have known. you show real character of a true Zambian wife. Keep doing your duty and sorry for your husbands failure to the country. he will offcourse put you in the same boat. keep your head up madam for your own sake as a dedicated Zambian.

    Thanks
