President Lungu being welcomed by area member of Parliament Greyford Moonde

PRESIDENT Lungu will today meet the Eastern Province business community in Chipata to discuss agriculture, which is the region’s mainstay.
Special assistant to the President for press and public relations Amos Chanda told journalists in Lusaka yesterday that the discussions will be at a business dinner.

“The business community in Chipata requested the President, they wanted to discuss with him the vision of the party and Government regarding the policies in agriculture and fertiliser distribution, the issues that are affecting the agriculture industry, which is predominantly the backbone of the economy in Eastern Province,” Mr Chanda said.

He said President Lungu has agreed to meet the business community.

Mr Chanda has also said that President Lungu will tomorrow travel to Mpika in Muchinga Province where he will witness the consecration of a Catholic bishop.

The President will also launch several development projects, which he will either commission or grace at ground-breaking ceremonies.
The developmental projects are in Mpika, Shiwang’andu, Chinsali, Nakonde and Mbala.

The President returns to Lusaka on Tuesday after his tour of duty in the two provinces.

  1. Naikosa bane , mushipe. The Presidency comes and goes and time is flying and flying at a faster speed. the economy is falling apart with a 25Kg bag of mealie meal going at K120. Shall Zambia under President Lungu be another Zimbabwe before 11/08 ? let us wait and see. Chishimba Chimbwili na amba ukonda mambala.

  2. Our working president. Kindly give an audience to students too at CBU and UNZA over meal allowances. We already have a shortage of skills such as those of medical doctors and if the meal allowance is taken away it will negatively impact what you want to achieve in the health sector…………some of the students will find it hard to get someone to sponsor their meals and eventually will drop out of school. Remember that the ‘brightest’ of students are chosen to study such skills and we wouldn’t like to compromise on quality just because one can not afford meals.

    • @HH Techilema, School of Medicine is affected as it gets students who complete their second year under Med quota from Natural sciences at UNZA.

    • Ati…..his tour of duty!

      This clown has no idea of what his “DUTY” actually is! The economy is in a shambles, the Kwacha is worthless. Chikwanda thinks he can borrow his way out of incompetence with the IMF and growth is going NEGATIVE due to load shedding!

      And this clown is travelling again at Taxpayers expense to campaign for re-election!

      This is not “DUTY” , this is NEGLECT OF DUTY! Edgar should be seeing what he can do about the COLLAPSING ECONOMY but as usual the clueless clown is so dull he is unaware of the SH.I.T he has put Zambia into!

      How can Zambians tolerate such stu.pidity and foolish.ness? It is beyond belief!

    • @ Moscow
      Kaingu said govt will continue paying tuition accommodation project and research and other allowances. It’s only meal allowance which will be replaced with loans. This is a best way of making students focused on education and not disturbing the academic calender. Believe me no one again is going to riot because of meal allowance. Have asked yourself why mulungushi and other public unis run smoothly?

  7. UPND cadres always ranting, now check this: PF has 20 MPs in Copperbelt province, 06 in Central, 04 in Eastern, 13 in Luapula, 13 in Northern, 10 in Lusaka, 09 in Muchinga, 02 in North western, 01 in Southern, 04 in Western and 08 nominated(90 in total), while UPND has 18 in Southern province, 04 in Central, 04 in North western, 04 in Western and 01 in Copperbelt rural(31 in total). So which party has a national character and likely to win in August! Keep on dreaming because dreams are free of charge.

    • @eddy: calm down, it’s just politics. It’s obvious from your comment UPND are irritating you maybe because they are giving you sleepless nights. Why worry, if you are confident PF will win the August elections? It will not be you or me to decide who will win the August elections, but the registered voters will decide who they want to be Mp or President after August 11, 2016.

  11. @Manix’s analysis is spot on and that is what is on the ground, last week I was in Luapula passed through Mansa, Mwense on my way to Kashikishi there is no HH there so I can assure you ECL is bagging Luapula even this time around. My next visit will be Northern after in two weeks time and I will update you when I come.
