Chief Hamusonde of the Tonga speaking people in Southern Province has urged Zambians to offer more constructive ideas if the country is to continue achieving positive economic development.

Chief Hamusonde, who is at the centre of the tribal allegations leveled against the UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema, has since commended Government on its national developmental agenda.

He said the efforts to foster development require teamwork and that unnecessary criticism could reverse the economic gains Zambia has scored.

The chief obverved that progressive ideas at individual level were key in providing solutions to challenges facing the country.

“Zambia is our only country, let’s not wait for Government to always give us development, but let’s initiate progressive ideas at individual level to help foster more national development, “he said.

Chief Hamusonde was speaking at his Muchende Ushiya farm in Choma on Friday when he re-launched his chiefdom’s five-year development strategic plan, which was earlier launched in his chiefdom in Monze a few months ago.

The re-launch fell on Christmas day, was meant to re-emphasise need for Zambians to support developmental policies of his chiefdom’s strategic plan.

The chief praised Government for construction of the Niko-Monze road including many other infrastructure developments in Monze.

The Hamusonde chiefdom’s strategic plan was one key step in partnering with Government to implement various programmes of development.

“We need to find ways of strengthening the human capabilities of our people so that we utilise these natural resources in full in order to improve our standard of living, “he said.

He was confident that, through the plan, it would open up investment opportunities in areas such as banks and supermarkets to create local employment.

Provincial Permanent Secretary Sibanze Simuchoba, who attended the re-launch with his deputy Douglas Ngimbu and Choma District Commissioner Sheena Muleya, reaffirmed Government’s commitment to uplifting the welfare of all Zambians.

Mr Simuchoba said Government would support chiefdom’s strategic plan to speed up delivery of tangible programmes of developments in rural areas.

He said President Edgar Lungu was working hard to take development to all chiefdoms as evidenced in areas of infrastructure. Ends

      LT, responsible journalism demands that you get views on a story from both sides. You had an opportunity to ask Hamusonde whether the story you ran was correct or not but decided to ignore and only mention about it here. You have not asked HH to deny or confirm the story. Why? Please stop this cadre journalism NOW!
