President Edgar Lungu has today commissioned the newly-completed Mufuchani Bridge on the Kafue River in Kitwe in the Copperbelt Province.

The construction of Mufuchani Bridge cost K63 million and was funded by the World Bank.

This is the fourth big infrastructural development project which President Lungu has commissioned in a space of three months in Zambia.

Within this period, President Lungu commissioned the over K1 billion Mongu-Tapo-Kalabo Road which has a number of bridges along the Barotse flood plains and across the Zambezi river, the Sioma Bridge in Western Province and the Nakonde-Mbala Road project.

President Lungu said the new bridge will lessen the problems which the people used to face going to and from city centre.

He said the bridge will also facilitate the expansion of the city on the eastern side, trigger the construction of housing units and enhance business activities in the area.

“The absence of a permanent crossing point at Mufuchani has not only been a hindrance to the growth and development of Kitwe, but it has also posed serious social problems for our people in this area,” he said.

He said government thought it necessary to end the problems which people faced by constructing the bridge.

“I am exceedingly cheerful that today the new Mufuchani Bridge is a living testimony of the PF government’s commitment to improving people’s living standards through the provision of development of infrastructure,” he said.

President Lungu added, “Those who mock you that you cannot eat roads, tell them that here, the bridge and roads mean more than just eating but saving lives”.

Mr Lungu further said government was planning to upgrade the road from Mufuchani Bridge, which is an earth road, to bituminous standard.

The road, which is approximately 48 km long, will run from Mufuchani Bridge to join the Ndola-Mufulira road (4) and also from the bridge to join the Ndola-Kitwe dual carriageway near ZAMTAN.

“The development of this road will provide a by-pass and most direct route for travellers from Ndola to Mufulira without going through Kitwe town,” he explained.

The President has since announced that the Road Development Agency (RDA) has already awarded a contract to two Zambian engineering consulting firms to conduct techno economic studies and preparation for detailed engineering designs for upgrading the two roads.

He said the engineering consulting companies that have been identified will be announced before the end of this month.

“We do what we promise,” Mr Lungu said.

And President Lungu has condemned the vandalism which is already taking place on the new Mufuchani Bridge.

He said those involved in vandalism should be reported to the police.

Earlier, Minister of Works and Supply, Yamfwa Mukanga, said his ministry was happy with the rate of infrastructural development taking place in the country.

Mr Mukanga said in a speech ready for him by Minister of Justice, Ngosa Simbyakula, that the Patriotic Front (PF) administration has delivered on its promises in terms of infrastructural development.

And Copperbelt Province Minister Mwenya Musenge said the people in the region were grateful to government for fulfilling its promise to build the bridge across Kafue River at Mufuchani.

Mr Musenge said the fulfilment of the promises was a clear testimony that government was desirous about improving people’s lives.

Hundreds of jubilant people living around Mufuchani area turned up to witness the commissioning of the bridge

    • With the money they spent on that bridge, 3 or 4 bridges would have been built if it wasn’t for corruption. That’s why we need economic managers to undertake cost efficient projects. These thugs in power have destroyed the economy really.

    • “SONTAPO” AMWISHO. @1.1 YOU FORGOT TO SAY THE CONSTRUCTION OF MUFUCHANI BRIDGE WAS UNIP AND MMD PLAN. @1.2 GUYS, USE YOUR HEADS. IN FEW YEARS TO COME THE CONSTRUCTION OF BRIDGES WILL STILL BE EXPENSIVE. THIS IS BECAUSE ZAMBIA DOES NOT MANUFACTURE CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT AND MAINLY THE CHINESE COMPANIES THAT ARE CONSTRUCTING ROADS AND BRIDGES ARE SHIPPING THESE EQUIPMENT FROM CHINA- THAT IS ONE OF THE EMBEDDED COSTS OF ROAD/BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION IN ZAMBIA. WHEN COMPANIES STABILISE BY EQUIPPING THEMSELVES AND ZAMBIA STARTS MANUFACTURING CONSTRUCTION/BUILDING EQUIPMENT, THE COSTS WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE BROUGHT DOWN. ECL E MUNTU.

    • 63 million in old currency is 63 billion. Can the auditor general move in and provide a breakdown of how the money was spent? If Lungu really understood the essence of having a strong economy and zero tolerance on corruption this money would have built 3 or 4 or even 5 more bridges across the country because the cost of doing business is lower and the money is channeled to the correct place.

  3. This is the defeat and downfall of Kaponya (HH) and his cronies. These images give (HH) Diarrhoea and Gonorrhea. Hap Hazard Kaponya (HH) is defeated by our massive infrastructure projects. Kaponya in his usual tribal thinking has gone to the extent of selling UPND to PF and MMD. I doubt Kaponya studied economics or business because the chap has no strategy in his decision making. Watch now as Kaponya reaches the climax of his humiliating defeat 15 years in opposition. Kaponya, what projects can you point at? Us we can show you Mufuchani Bridge. Sonta po!

  14. No wonder, Zambia cannot go forward under this drunkard of a President Lungu!! He has just reduced himself to the level of a Mayor or Counsellor! Instead of working to fix the economy to create jobs, this little id.iot goes around opening little projects like bridges, House completions, etc. These are the jobs for Mayors and Counsellors in local Govt.
    So when would he as a president actually sit down to do serious work for which he rigged (not elected) the election. He needs to leave small jobs like Mufuchani bridge to Mayor of Kitwe or Mwenye Musenge.

    • @18,Terrible,see 18.1 HH Techilema’s reply!!That is the reality you guys must be dealing with. The Bemba speaking group is quite big and GBM may just have some influence in Kasama where he lives which is still questionable bcoz he could not have clutched to the MP seat after going to UPND! He failed to win HH votes when Lungu was not known and they campaigned for 2 months and Lungu did only 3 weeks!Bemba speakers look at GBM as an individual and not there Savior so they cannot follow him just like that.PF has strong structures in all these areas which the UPND cannot just match and with a few projects to show they have a strong chance to keep huge lead in votes and now coupled MMD support especially from Eastern Province-be careful!!

    • @21,23 Eddy,you are spot on! But like Wynter Kabimba had said,UPND guys live on “Fantasy island” and think what they wish or dream is reality! This time Lungu is better organized than January 2015 and as you have put it PF’s structures are largely intact with known councilors and MPs to conduct on the ground campaign! GBM’s choice might have even diminished morale of UPND zealots who could have liked older members to be VP! Unless there is high voter apathy which is not very likely in general elections,PF has higher possibility to lead with huge margins in Bemba speaking areas. With MMD on board especially from Eastern Province,and more time than in 2015 to campaign,PF has higher chances to win !!

  33. Well done WORLD BANK. Also thank EL, but please reduce on the waste your Government is employing. I live near the bridge but was prevented to go home by your over zealous police. Go to UK and see how David Cameron moves, only one sweeper car and no blockage of roads.

    Open your eyes Mr President and control this wastage.

  34. UPND is already defeated, it will be 77% votes in favor of PF. Guys let’s not experiment Black Panther Party’s Ten-Point Program. It has never been head off in the era of Zambian Politics. The TO DO list for Zambian politics is a Manifesto and not a 10 point program which requires a WBS ( Work Breakdown Structure). I know HH understands what I mean, otherwise even his party members don’t understand the complexity of Black Panther’s theory. To make matters worse GBM doesn’t know anything.

  35. It is clear from evidence that the Post Newspaper has published about foreigners registered to vote, the awarding of ballot papers to a questionable Dubai printer and the stupid and arrogant responses by ECZ officials that the PF with the help of ECZ is trying to rig the election.
    Clearly, Lungu is getting these ideas from Dictators like Mugabe and Museveni who have no place in modern day democracy and Zambians being touch bearers in democratization in Africa should stand up together and say NO to retrogressive behavior like rigging.
    My greatest concern is the softness with which the opposition is handling all the abuses and attempts by Lungu to rig.
    UPND arguably the front runner in this race must change its tactic of dealing with PF machinations and deal with them head on and if it…

  36. Brethren, please beware of the impostor ‘terrible’ with a small ‘t’. I the real Terrible am sensible and not pro-chuundu, i am pro- progress. And I terrorize UPNS and HH, they all shiver when I post a comment.
    Now to serious business. I was buying the newspapers and people mostly Upnd were looking at the headlines of GBM running mate and going like: But this HH he wants us to vote for this fat rat GBM as president of Zambia? I was impressed that people on the streets have such a deep understanding of the meaning of running mate. They are aware that we have lost two presidents in office so far and we have been lucky that the old constitution required elections within three months. But the new constitution gives the presidency to the running mate or vice president automatically. And if…

ThT is what Upnd cadres on the street are talking about President Bwalya Mwamba! Just imagine that. Come on guys come on HH come on UPND you cannot be serious!!! This is Zambia our beloved and only Zambia!!

  38. Now to.this cadre Joseph Kabwe, obviously not real.name for real bembas cannot think that foolishly. He has answered himself , yes Zambia borrowed money from the world bank for mufuchani bridge its not a gift mind you, it is a loan like tge euro bond, lians from China and other loans. All the loans have gone to finance roads clinics hospitals schools etc etc which we are sontaring to you now that is where the money has gone!! As you should know the world does not have enough money to finance all projects so other financiers chip.in what they can lend. Is that so difficult to understan But anyway we know that the so called economist does not share knowledge or information because he wants to look more intelligent than his followers even on straight forward things. You can understand the…

  39. UPND just admit that yours is another failed project but this one is your worst ever with GBM Sampa Sichinga Mulenga in a so called alliance led by that muzungu opusa. And not forgetting the desperate Post, where Mmembe still lives in the past that he can continue to cheat people with his stupiod editorials and equally stupiod journalists, sorry no one believes in your rubbish anymore except HH and his equally daft cadres. If HH was an intelligent boy he would read through the useless offef from desperado Mmembe.

  40. 63 million in old currency is 63 billion. Can the auditor general move in and provide a breakdown of how the money was spent? If Lungu really understood the essence of having a strong economy and zero tolerance on corruption this money would have built 3 or 4 or even 5 more bridges across the country because the cost of doing business is lower and the money is channeled to the correct place.

Was GBM president, was there a chance that he could take over from Mr Sata, did Mr Sata annoint him to take over, was he appointed acting president? Zzzzzzzz

  42. And now to HH, although running mate is the prerogative of the presidential candidate, HHs choice of GBM and the way he was announced is another pointer to the dictatorial and non consultative nature of HH. Running mate is as good as president so we would expect at least HH to test his choice to the public or his party members. Just look at the democratic credentials of Edgar Chagwa Lungu, he first declared that his running mate would be a woman and no negarive reaction from his party, next he announced the name of Hon Inonge Wina again no negative reaction from his party members or cadres or fellow leaders or even the general public, all this well in time before nomination day. Contrast this with HH boom! GBM files with him before the ECZ, cadres and party leaders and even the general…

  43. ….public no chance to comment. In other words HH does not think much of all you his cadres, you are tools to be used. But if you guys agree that you are tools pof one man how come you want to comment as if you are human beings. If your boss doesnt think you cadres and fellowr Upnd leaders are human and you agree why should we think otherwise?

  44. No big deal mr spaka, you will need the infrastructure built by PF from.that debt if you want to be able to.implement your so called ten point plan. If it wasnt so, then you would have to borrow similar amounts ti carry out your plan,. But then the comennt is academic since you will never come to power so you can criticise as much as you want

After completing Sata’s projects the next thing is Chipante pante! Kuwayawaye fye. 11 August 2016 Vote wisely.

This was because he was able to see that none of them were able to think like him and none of the ministers complained about being called USELESS. Now see how excited they are on the fruits of Sata’s labour and vision. Micheal Sata the went into an alliance with HH. On 11 August 2016 vote wisely

  53. 10 REASONS WHY A NORMAL PERSON CANNOT VOTE FOR LUNGU AND PF.
    1 The cost of living is very high.
    2 When Lungu assumed office, the cost of 2 kg sugar was at K14.00 now its K27.00.
    3. PF have failed to reduce the price of fuel because at international market the price is low.If we consider the price of fuel then in 2011 and factor in the depreciation of Kwacha and the current price at international market, we must be buying fuel at K5.00.
    4.Voting for PF,will mean all the tenants and landlords will be paying withholding tax that will further push the cost of living further to the extreme.
    5. Failure to restore subsidies on fuel and others.
    6. If you vote for Pf ,the exchange rate will hit K25 by November this year due to mismanagement of the economy by PF.
    7. Pf are criminals ,they…

    • Show me all the new completed projects – new governtment buildings have not been completed and no work is been done on them, roads have not been completed – Kitwe, Ndola, Mufulira…..the bridge over the zambezi is done but it is of no use if there is no completed road, schools may have been built but they are not equiped, shops are closing down due to people not having money to shop there……there is no bumper harvest and soon the maize will finish, lake kariba is filling but soon it will be drained again due to the equipment installed to generate electricity…. I am not sure where you live but it is not in Zambia unless you walk around with your eyes clsosed.
