The Spouses Association at the Zambian High Commission in Pretoria has made a contribution of blankets to the Esther Lungu Foundation Trust which will be launched in Lusaka yestrday.

Mrs. Monde Mwamba, wife of Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Mr. Emmanuel Mwamba has said that the contribution is meant to assist the Trust as it takes off with its challenging work.

Mrs. Mwamba, who has travelled to Lusaka to make the presentation to the Trust on behalf of the Spouses Association, says the group has taken note of the many charity programmes that Mrs. Lungu has been involved in since she became First Lady and realized that the task ahead would still be challenging even as she forms the Trust.

The causes that the Trust has set out to help address affect a large number of our population today. When we thought of the vast number of people that are in need, as the Spouses Association at the High Commission, we felt not only deeply grateful for the First Lady’s courage and vision, but also strongly compelled to help support her good cause,” Mrs. Mwamba said.

The 150 blankets were bought from resources which spouses of diplomats raised as an Association. Diplomatic staff at the Mission also contributed to the consignment.

The Trust is expected to be launched today at Lusaka’s New Government Complex.

  1. ‘Men of God’ milking their shepherds while living ostentatiously: Our pastors are cruising expensive cars, acquiring private jets and living in multimillion Kwacha mansions while majority of their followers live in poverty. No wonder they lay too much emphasis on paying of tithes and seed sowing. They lick the backsides of corrupt politicians instead of telling them the truth point-blank. This lifestyle is gradually killing the credibility of the Christian faith.

    • Worship at home and do good works for others. God is our personal friend who hears our prayers, praises and thankfulness wherever we are.

      Stay away from false churches and do not let False Priests mislead you nor give them power over you to damage your faith. Churches are the new battle ground of the Devil. God will begin his judgement from the churches. Cleaning them and freeing His True children.

  2. Why not donate these blankets to UTH or an orphanage home than giving them to someone who would use them for her husband’s campaign?
    Desperate wives indeed!!!!!

  3. When will politicians and their supporters learn that these trusts or foundations are not sustainable and cease to exist beyond the office of the president in question … Ask Vera Chiluba and her marital rival, Maureen Mwanawasa, Thandiwe Banda and of course Christine Kaseba!

    Esther Lungu and all of these first ladies have failed to learn from the legacy of Betty Kaunda …

    • Thandiwe Banda did not set up a foundation and decided to support those that already existed when she became first lady.

  7. Or is it just someone with IT knowledge who starts them and then starts putting fake stories on the pages so that hungry Zambians abroad can find somewhere to vent then the publisher has his money from unsuspecting advertisers?
