Luapula Constituency Member of Parliament Emerine Kabanshi pays homage to the wife of Chief Kasomalunga at Chief Kasomalunga’s palace in Lunga District where president Edgar Chagwa Lungu had gone to inspect some projects

Chief Kasoma Lunga of the Ushi speaking people of Lunga district of Luapula Province has praised President Edgar Lungu for the on-going developmental projects in the district.

Chief Kasoma Lunga says President Lungu has demonstrated a great humanitarian zeal of ensuring that Lunga attains its full district status after being declared a district by late President, Micheal Sata, few years ago.

The traditional leader said the on-going construction of social infrastructures, such as schools, hospital, health posts and houses shows government’s commitment of improving the welfare of the people of Lunga.

Chief Kasoma Lunga said this at his palace when Rural Electrification Authority (REA) Chief Executive Officer, Geoffrey Musonda, paid a courtesy call on him.

The traditional leader also praised government through REA for choosing Lunga district as the area to implement the K3.3 Million Sola Mini Grid Project.

He said once completed the project will be of great economic value not only to the people of Lunga but the surrounding areas.

And REA Chief Executive Officer, Geoffrey Musonda, said the authority is committed to ensuring that people in Lunga district have access to electricity.

Mr Musonda said improving people’s access to electricity will help to accelerate other social needs of the communities, such as health and education among others.

Meanwhile, Chief Kasoma Lunga said he is ready to offer land for the construction of facilities aimed at improving the lives of the people of Lunga district.

The Ushi chief said he has already demonstrated this by offering land for the construction of the new district administration block and the Solar Mini Grid project among others.

  1. The “palace” looks like a pigsty. Proof that Zambian traditional leaders are useless and have no place in modern Africa!

    • The increment of Chiefs Salaries by Lungu is election Malpractice. Now all spineless Chiefs have become pro-Lungu. Kwacha will come & devalue that increment after IMF is finished with “fixing” Zambia’s Economy.

      Some Chiefs are just headmen, no clout, no spine. Look at the dilapidated “Palace”. Like a pig-sty.

  2. MOST ZAMBIANS ARE LAGGING BEHIND IN TERMS OF ACCESS TO INFORMATION. DEVELOPMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE IS NOT A PF INITIATIVE. IT IS A MILLENIUM DEVELOPMENT GOAL, AND NOW SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL, WHICH ALL COUNTRIES HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO UNDERTAKE. IT IS MANDATORY THAT ANY EXISTING GOVERNMENT GLOBALLY IN THIS 21st CENTURY SHOULD DO, AND ALL HAVE TO REPORT BACK TO THE WORLD BODY WHEN THEY HAVE SITTINGS, TO SPELL OUT THE PROGRESS MADE. HH WILL DO THE SAME, EDITH CAN DO THE SAME, LUNGU CAN STILL DO THE SAME. IT IS A TREND BY ALL COUNTRIES AROUND THE GLOBE, AND ZAMBIA IS STILL LAGGING FAR BEHIND IN INFRASTRUCTURAL DEVELOPMENT.

    • @4TRUTH, you are partly right and that is why they praising the current govt for fulfilling the commitment! There is no world body that holds government at gun point to comply with their international undertakings. It takes a responsible government to do so! Yes it is a duty of party in power which runs government to provide infrastructure but when it is doing the job then it needs to explain to its employers that they should not fire it from job of running govt because it is doing the job it was employed to do by the electorate!So when they say sonta,yes it sounds like a baseless slogan to those who have had no opportunity of running govt,but it makes sense since that is one way of showing proof that ” I have done my job,here are the results,please let me continue”!

  3. In the Bible, the number 6 symbolizes man and human weakness, the evils of Satan and the manifestation of sin. Man was created on the sixth day. Men are appointed 6 days to labor.

    A Hebrew slave was to serve six years and be released in the 7th year. Six years were appointed for the land to be sown and harvested. The number 6 is also associated with Satan in his temptation of Jesus.
    LET US QUICKLY USHER IN THE 7TH PRESIDENT IN ZAMBIA.GOD OUT OF HIS MERCY MADE OUR SIXTH PRESIDENT TO SERVE A SHORT TERM SO THAT OUR SUFFERING IS NOT PROLONGED.

    • Stop blasphemy before the wrath of God befall you! Hypocrites and sons of vipers referred to by John the Baptist. You refuse to worship Jehovah for peace and chose to quote the bible out of context. Even Lucifer can quote the Bible but he has no discernment! Get away from us SATAN!

  5. WE THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE WANT TO KICK OUT LUNGU AND PF BECAUSE THEY ARE CORRUPT. THEY HAVE LOOTED THE NATIONAL TREASURY, ONLY TO ENRICH THEMSELVES WHILE NEGLECTING MILLIONS OF VULNERABLE CITIZENS. HAVING DECENT SOCIAL AMENITIES IS NOT A FAVOR FROM LUNGU, IT IS OUR RIGHT AS CITIZENS.RECEIVING GOOD HEALTH CARE SHOULD NOT BE A PRIVILEGE ONLY FOR A FEW RICH PEOPLE, IT IS A RIGHT FOR EVERY ZAMBIAN. WE WANT A SERIOUS GOVERNMENT THAT WILL WORK FOR THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA THRU HH AND THE UPND. WE DON’T WANT LUNGU’S GOVERNANCE APPROACH OF MISMANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC RESOURCES, SEGREGATION AND SQUANDER.

  6. THE UNEQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH IS THE MOST UGLY DEMON WE HAVE IN ZAMBIA, AND CRIMINAL EDGAR LUNGU AND HIS PF MINIONS HAVE PERPETRATED THIS UNFAIR AND INHUMANE ACT ON MILLIONS OF THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. THIS IS A DEFINING MOMENT FOR ZAMBIA. LET US DO OURSELVES A BIG FAVOR. LET US VOTE FOR A TEAM THAT HAS THE ENTHUSIASM TO JERK OUR ECONOMY AND OUR STANDARDS OF LIVING UP. LET US VOTE FOR HH AND THE UPND TEAM BECAUSE THEY MEAN WELL FOR ZAMBIA. PF MINIONS ARE BUSY SPREADING PROPAGANDA, TRYING TO SCARE THE ZAMBIANS BY SAYING THEY WILL BE SEGREGATED AGAINST IF BY THE TONGAS IF HH WINS. THAT IS A VERY SERIOUS LIE, AND KAMBWILI WILL HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR SPREADING MALICIOUS INFORMATION TO THE ZAMBIANS ABOUT THE TONGAS. TRIBALISM IS KAMBWILI’S DNA. ABASH KAMBWILI! ABASH LUNGU! ABASH PF! LUNGU AND HIS…

    • Which jerking can GBM do? 🙁
      He most likely will be insulting and kicking every Zambian within 6 months if by some misfortune we ashier UPND into power, which I am confident beyond doubt would not happen at all!
