Over 500 elderly citizens of Kabushi constituency in Ndola were on Saturday offered a five-star treatment when Kabushi constituency aspiring candidate Bowman Lusambo organised a Christmas party for the aged.

The party which was held at Musa Kasonka stadium also saw all the elderly citizens aged above 65 years receive numerous Christmas gifts from Mr Lusambo.

The Christmas hampers contained cooking oil, sugar, salt, bath soap, duvets and bags of Mealie meal.

All the recipients drawn from all the eight wards of Kabushi were also treated to a sumptuous Christmas lunch.

The Legendary Amayenge Assemble and folk music specialist Pontiano Kaiche were on hand to entertain the elders who could not resist the music and ended up jumping on stage to offer their dances.

Other musicians such as Mathews Ngosa and his young brother Ezron also sang their popular gospel songs to the delight of the guests.

The event which started at 09 Hours was only closed around 17 Hours with many jubilant elders still yearning for more.
And Mr Lusambo who was accompanied to the function by his wife Nancy and daughter Sibongile said he decided to organise the Christmas party to honour the aged in the constituency.

‘For me and my family including members of the my team, we decided to use this Christmas to bring some happiness to our grand fathers, grandmothers, our mothers and fathers by coming down here to spend this day with you. You are very important in our lives and you deserve to be honoured,’ Mr Lusambo told a cheering crowd.

He reiterated that he is standing in Kabushi constituency to improve the living standards of the people in the area.
‘We have said it before, our going to Parliament will not be to serve our pockets. We will be working for you, with you to ensuring that Kabushi is uplifted. There are so many things that an MP can do without even spending a lot of money. All it takes is commitment,’ he said.

He also revealed that his development efforts in Kabushi will not stop even if he does not become M.P for the area.
‘I grew up here in Kabushi, all of you are my parents because i lived in this constituency and my heart is still here. Even if i don’t go to Parliament in August 2016, i can assure you that i will continue working for you just like we have been doing over the last few months,’ Mr Lusambo said.

And in her remarks, Mrs Lusambo thanked the people of Kabushi for the wonderful reception that her family received upon arrival.

‘On behalf of my family, i am so grateful that you have welcomed us in this manner. We are so encouraged by your hospitality. It is indeed true that Ndola is a friendly city,’ he said.

  1. THE ZWD/UPND AND THE POST HAVE TRIED TO PAINT THIS GUY BLACK. I THOUGHT HE WAS A PANGA-WIELDING, VERY UNCOUTH, UNCIVILIZED, THUG TERRORIZING RESIDENTS ON THE CB WITH NO FAMILY. KANSHI THE GUY HAS A DECENT WIFE WITH FAMILY AND YOUNG DAUGHTER. THE MEDIA CAN SURELY DEMONIZE PEOPLE. OF COURSE HE MAY HAVE SOME EXTREME BEHAVIOUR , BUT NOT AS PORTRAYED BY THESE MEDIA ORGANISATIONS. CHEERS TO LUSAMBO.

    • @Chisenga, so you think panga-welding, very uncouth, uncivilized, thug terrorizing residents DON’T have families.

      You are very naive.

      Bowman is attacking other opposition leaders so in essence he paints an image FOR HIMSELF.

  2. So others are allowed to start their campaigns early?the police in zambia is the source of violence.if it was upnd a permit was not going given en teargasing was going to enforced.

  3. JUST RECEIVE ALL THE GIFTS, then come elections – Do a “Donchi Kubeba” – they are using borrowed money, SO IT IS OUR MONEY – get the gifts then a BIG DONCHI KUBEBA!!!!!!!!

    • What do you mean ‘they are using borrowed money, SO IT IS OUR MONEY’? Bowman is a private citizen and of course he is in the opposition..!

    • Iwe Vizungu, Give us a financial profile of Bowman – the chap has been funded by PF, literally, they have “Put a Cat amongst the pidgeons”
      OUR MONEY- being the billions they are borrowing in our name as Tax payers WHO WILL HAVE TO FOOT IT – you obviously are so naive as NOT TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR IT – by way of more taxes, having more expensive goods/food across the board, SHORTAGES by lack of drawing in DIRECT FOREIGN INVESTMENT, Succumbing to IMF & WORLD BANK who will DICTATE BELT TIGHTENING measures like REMOVAL of FUEL, FOOD, MEDICAL subsidies etc etc!!!

  4. Bowman should not cheat the people he has a heart fro them as he is merely vote buying and wants to be an MP. he wount be able to do what he is doing when he is MP as that is not the duty of a member of parliament to be distributing christmas presents and holding soccer tournaments in their names using whose resources? an MP is not a charitable prganization he is there to ensure basic nessesities and amenities are available in his constituency and given priority in budgets and representing their issues in parliament not to be a father christmas. this essentially amounts to vote buying otherwise he should just set up a charitable organization where he can continue to do his charitable works and not bother being an MP because the two jobs are very different.

  5. Jealous down…! Which ever party he is standing on, the fact is the guy has shamed his critics…! He is helping the needy..!

  6. This is what MPs should be doing. But the key question is: where is the money coming from for these gifts? If he wins, which is obvious, is this ground enough to challenge his win that it is due to these good acts of corruption?

    • Chitofwa. Who has asked you were the money came from Tobit your internet bundles naimwe. I am sure you even have a property somewhere and no one has ever asked you were you got the money from to have such an investment. Leave that to law enforcement agencies. If he has stolen the money he will be caught and jailed. Why always askunnecessary and trivial questions when one does some good will gestures? Par Zedi ni zee manigi

  7. There’s one question all of us need to ask: Where did Bowman get the wealth all of a sudden to splash gifts the way he did? I am a very worried citizen because it looks like there is serious looting going on in the PF. Actually it is alleged that Boawman was given K2,000,000.00 by Edgar Lungu to begin campaigning on the Copperbelt. If we are to ask: What is it that Bowman does that can earn him the kind of money he spent on those gifts? There is a lot of impunity in this country and all of us are just watching. The guy is being bankrolled by Edgar Lungu to campaign for the PF. And lets just imagine the likes of Bowman being a cabinet minister! Please Zambians, lets wake up and stop this wanton abuse of our hardly earned tax money.

    • If you do not have friends it’s simply because of your evil analysis. If Lusambo is your enemy don’t think every one is his enemy. Get your acts in place and such acts of good will become easy to handle. He has friends

  8. Having been defrauded by Bowman a couple of years ago (and I know of atleast 3 people who have had the same experience), I find it difficult to believe to he can have acquired the personal wealth legitimately to spend as much as he is spending so early in the campaigns. Makes one wonder for sure who is bankrolling him especially when one considers that he has not even declared what party he is standing on. The unfortunate reality is that he will probably end up holding public office, he will probably be involved in illegal underhand deals as that is his nature going by past behaviour. Lord help us

  9. How come Lusambos gathering was not disrupted by police POA does it mean he got a permit? In essence if he did then he is more law abiding than Nevers mumba. nawakwi . GBM etc
