Solwezi West UPND Member of parliament Teddy Kasonso says the last minute projects being launched in North Western Province will not sway the voters in the Province.

Speaking in an interview Mr Kasonso said President Lungu and his government have seen that they have not done anything tangible in the last five years they have been in power hence the desperate last minute Launches of developmental projects.

He said the people in the Province will not be duped because they have seen for themselves what the PF have done in five years and that the legacy of the PF in the Province will be that of incomplete projects.

He said North Western Province has practically been cut off for the last 3 months as the de tour created for road users as they work on the main road has not been properly maintained adding that the Solwezi Chingola road not seen a face rift since the MMD left office in 2011.

He added the Province, despite being one of the main contributor to government revenues has received the least number of developmental projects under the PF government and that people are aware that they are receiving development projects because it an election year.

President Lungu was in the Province over the weekend where officially opened solar milling plant and toured some developmental projects in the Province.

He also called on the contractor working on the Solwezi – Chingola road to expedite the reconstruction of the road.

    They don’t need to dupe anybody, it is the responsibility of any government to develop the country wherever development is required.

      But here in Zambia the agenda of development is a part of election promises Kabu. So they need to deliver as promised. They were elected on the basis of such promises, weren’t they? Even HH is making promises. So what should we expect of him if perchance he were to be President?

    These projects are part of an on-going program of development Kasonso. There is nothing like last minute launch as if this is the beginning.

      I THINK KASONSO LISHILU, FYE. OR HE IS COMPLETELY BLIND AND THEREFORE, HE HASN’T BEEN SEEING WHAT HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE PF OCCUPIED OFFICE. KASONSO, LET THE VOTERS SAY THAT ON AUGUST 11, 2016 AND NOT YOU WHO IS NOT EVEN A VOTER BUT JUST YAPPING FROM OVERSEAS. THANK YOU LUNGU, THANK YOU PF, THANK YOU WELL MEANING PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA.

    THAT’S A LIE BA KASONSO. BECAUSE THE LAUNCH OF THE PROJECT IS JUST A CONTINUATION OF WHAT PF HAS BEEN DOING (DEVELOPMENTAL PROJECTS IMPLEMENTATION) SINCE THEY OCCUPIED OFFICE. PF HAVE CONTINUED ROLLING OUT SUCH PROJECTS TO ALL PARTS OF ZAMBIA NON-STOP AND YOU ARE THE PARTY THAT EVEN SAY, “PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING TO EAT ROADS”. SO, WHY HAVE YOU BEEN SAYING THAT? IS IT NOT BECAUSE OF THE UNPRECEDENTED PROJECTS IMPLEMENTATIONS ALLOVER ZAMBIA? OR IS IT JUST TO MAKE NOISE AS USUAL? UPND HAVE A SHORT MEMORY OF GREEN FLY THAT FORGETS ON WHICH PIECE OF HUMAN EXCRETER IT SAT BEFORE AND KEEPS GOING BACK AND FORTH HUMAN SH!!T. THAT’S WHY BEMBA PEOPLE SAY, “UKUPUTULA LUNSHI PAMAFI KUNYA PABILI” MULI BALUNSHI, BA PF NABA MIDABWISA NAMA PROJECTS SUCH THAT MULEESHA NAPAMAFI AYAUMA. LOSERS INDEED.

    Ba Peter.

    Building roads or other projects on borrowed money does not translate to any tangible economical development. Just look at the papers & see how many properties are being auctioned by the banks. Would you call the previous owners having been rich or it was just a fallacy? Very soon Zambia will be broke & start applying for debt relief or can the PF clearly tell us in their campaigns how they will raise the money to pay back these loans. Zimbabwe’s infrastructure is much more developed than that of Zambia, but look at their economy. Stop misleading masses who unfortunately have not seen other economies, such as Argentina who are broke despite the so called developments.

      Borrowing to invest in projects that support economic growth is wise. That example you gave about Zimbabwe infrastructure just shows how dull you are.
      Besides infrastructure, so many other factors contribute to development.

      Maybe you use broomsticks for travelling. Otherwise if you cut your distance by travelling say from the Copperbelt through the newly tarred Pedicle Road, through the newly tarred Mansa-Luwingu-Kasama road instead of via Kapiri Mposhi to Kasama surely this results in saving in time and money which money you can use to buy food if you like.

    @peter ni ndoshi fye. We mwana WA ndoshi Peter , pf has failed and is desperate.
    The pfools have failed.
    The projects are just a means of fundraising.
    It is money making time. The pfools are making money through development projects but the pfools like pwita are busy praising and defending.
    People know what is going on and have vowed to eject the pfoolz govt.
    Now mwefipuba fi pfools respond.
    Keep on lying.

    Agreed with you Mr Kasonso. There is nothing tangible PF have done in their 5 years in NW other than raising the cost of living to the levels where 2 tomatoes are selling at K10. Its a shame that some people still want to continue in power despite naked failures.

      Yes PF has been on PROJECT LAUNCH since day one! Projects were –

      1. Increase Satas salary BY THREE TIMES as much
      2. Build Sata his retirement houses
      3. Appoint Commisions of Inquiry so all PF cardres got big allowances, then ignore the findings
      4. Go on MEDICAL TOURISM at taxpayers expense while no water and fired nurses at UTH
      5. Cancel Kafue Gorge Zesco project so there is more money in PF pockets
      6. Water the GRASS at State House
      7. Cause BY-ELECTIONS so more PF supporters can get money

      SURE, PF HAS BEEN LAUNCHING PROJECTS FROM DAY ONE! What good has it done for the Zambian people?

    Am worried as someone about to Vote for UP AND DOWN. These guys wont be doing projects for fear of been seen to buy votes since they don’t like it. They even put accounts principles into effect having a presdo an learned in that field. Guys they will be hunger. talking from experience. Ask can accountant to help u buy you a coffin for a distant relative who is not in you r contract of employment. hear his answer and come back we debate…ati no this is not in the contract. morally cant I be given then u deduct as a salary

    Kasonso, you will be forgiven for talking like that because you live in the comfort of city roads. If you had ridden with me on the hell-run road to Jimbe last month, you would appreciate this govt initiative and not care to hunt for ill motives. Since Eden, the people of Ikelenge will for once have a paved road and share in civilisation; and that’s after many, many elections since 1964; and that’s after six presidents and several presidential elections! For roads, PF have been at it since day one unlike the George Kunda Formular One vote duper. Take the road to Jimbe Sir and come back wiser.

    Mr Kasonso, we understand you very much,you are not seeing any developments by our working government because for the last 4 years and some months you have been using the same route which is from home,to parliament.today you wake up and say the PF has not perfomed,so from tomorrow find yourself time to move around the country.development will explain itself.

    Whilst appreciating the massive infrustructure developmental projects initiated by pf which I have not seen yet, of what economical value are they? Projects drawn out of resource looting thereby inflicting unprecedented suffering on the ordinary citizenry. ZAMBIA FORWARD!
