President Edgar Lungu with Chitimukulu at his palace on Sunday – Picture by Eddie Mwanaleza

Paramount Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba speaking of Kasama District has said that he is disturbed with the growing levels of political violence in the country and calls on all political leaders to take responsibility of this negative vice.

Chief Chitimukulu says the Bemba Royal Establishment is concerned with the growing cases of political violence in the country as the election date draws nearer.
The Traditional leader said this at his palace this morning when President Edgar Lungu paid a courtesy call on him.

He says political violence is a new phenomenon in Zambia and thus the need not to promote it.

He says it seems all youths, because of the high unemployment levels, are employed by political parties to perpetrate violence and wonders if they will remain employed after the polls.

Chief Chitimukulu says it is an obligation of all political parties to empower youths so that they can remain away from political violence.

And the traditional leader has also called on President Lungu to continue developing the area as they are still lagging behind in terms of development.
And President Lungu says he is an innocent person when it comes to perpetrating political violence in the country.

President Lungu says he has never at any time involved in training the so called militia with the view of promoting violence in the country.

Meanwhile, president Lungu has promised the people of Kayambi in Malole Constituency that he will declare Kayambi as a district if re-elected.

Speaking when he addressed a rally at Mambwe Grounds at Senga Hill, President Lungu says some opposition leaders in the country are bitter and that is why they keep on criticizing everything he does.

And Paramount Chief Chitimukulu has called for the re-definition of the roles of chiefs in the country’s national development.

The traditional leader said Chiefs should have defined roles in national development because they are always with the people on the ground.

He said his chiefdom has already started the process by opening up the Lubemba Investments Centre whose offices are in town as part of addressing high poverty levels in rural areas.

Paramount Chief Chitimukulu has revealed that the Centre is planning to open a secondary school to promote the provision of education at a minimal fee.

He said students will proceed to university to be established with a focus on engineering and medicine.

Paramount Chief Chitimukulu adds that Lubemba Investments Centre is also trying to establish a bio-fuel plant in Luwingu among other projects on cards.

The traditional leader also revealed that a local company is investing in fish farming with a daily production capacity of 30 tons while a UK investor is looking at developing a rice farm taking advantage of the available water bodies.

And President Lungu has pledged government’s commitment to supporting development initiatives under the Lubemba Investments Centre.

The Head of State has reiterated his commitment to continue with projects started by late President Michael Sata.

The Head of State said this when he called on Paramount Chief Chitimukulu at his palace in Mungwi District.

  1. Mwine LuBemba is wasting his precious time talking to a hypocrite president. Always denying responsibility for shedding blood and promoting violence. The most reprehensible for the crimes of this drunkard are his supporters and ass lickers who find nothing wrong with a punk like this president.

  2. Well-spoken your Royal Highness. And it is correct to openly and frankly express the concerns of political violence to none other than the Head of State himself. The buck stops with him in any Country.
    What I find astonishing is the reply our Head of State gave to the concerns raised. If he indeed merely said “….he has never at any time been involved in training the so called militia with the view of promoting violence in the country…” as reported by LT and ended there, then what sort of half-cocked answer is that from a Head of State? How can a Head of State simply say ‘its not me’ and fold his arms? How is that a solution or a strategy to the escalating problem at hand? To be honest, Lungu sounds completely clueless.

  4. Ba LT you should report accurately. Chief Chitimukulu is not a chief of the Bemba speakingof Kasama but the paramount chief of the Bembas of Ulubemba. If you don’t know which area falls under Ulubemba then do your research.

  8. How can you know the winner before voting? You are not God, man’s plans are not God’s plans. We plan but things don’t work out according to our plans unless God allows it.
