Copperbelt Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has called on the Lamba chiefs in the province to advise chieftainess Lesa not to involve herself in partisan politics as she is a custodian of people from different political parties.
Mr. Lusambo said this at the weekend during the Ukutangala Pa Nondo traditional ceremony in chief Shibuchinga of the Lamba people in Lufwanyama district.
Mr. Lusambo said government was all-inclusive and ready to work with all the people including those who belong to the opposition political parties to ensure that the motto of One Zambia; One nation is upheld.
He said Zambians were one despite having different political views hence the need for the opposition political parties to work together with government in order to foster development in the country.
He further said government was committed to ensuring that Lufwanyama was developed in the health and education sectors noting that a number of projects were being undertaken in the district.
And speaking through his representative John Bayungi, chief Shibuchinga thanked government for all the developments taking place in Lufwanyama district.
Chief Shibuchinga however called on government to ensure that works on the Lufwanyama-Kasempa road were completed because it was an economic road that will link Copperbelt and North Western provinces.
The traditional leader further said issues of health were cardinal and appealed to government to construct more health posts.
He said there was need to upgrade Milemu and Kambilombilo health posts to clinics so that health service delivery is improved in his chiefdom.
