President Edgar Lungu will this week visit Luapula Province on a three day working visit.
State House Spokesman Amos Chanda revealed in a statement that President Lungu will arrive in Mansa, the provincial capital on Tuesday, June 28th 2016.
“State House wishes to advise that His Excellency Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu, President of the Republic of Zambia will on Tuesday, 28th June 2016 start a tour of Luapula Province for three days. The President will start with Mansa and later visit all districts in the Province,” Mr Chanda said.
He said President Lungu will inspect government projects, assure farmers of increased attention to fertiliser and seed distribution and of prompt payment for the crop they will sell to the Food Reserve Agency next month.
“The President will thank the farmers particularly the small scale sector for their remarkable contribution to the 2.8 million bumper harvest Zambia has recorded this year. The Head of State will make major pronouncements to guide the revitalisation of assets of the Kawambwa Tea Company in order to create jobs for the local people,” he said.
