Solwezi -Chingola road
Solwezi -Chingola road

Solwezi residents have called on the PF government to be truthful on the construction of the Solwezi-Chingola road as they have suffered long enough.

The residents who spoke through their headman said they have lost confidence in the promises from government because they have been fed with the same rhetoric for a whole term but that no progress has been seen on the road.

Headman Kofwakofwa of Kimena Village which is along the same road was at loss of words to explain the difficulties that people in the area have been going through when bringing in goods and services to his area.

He said the road connects the province to the rest of the country but has been neglected further wondering if the people in the province are second class citizens who don’t deserve a better roads.

He said the road is a major contributor to the country’s economy as it the road which is used to transport all the copper as well as other commodities coming from North Western Province. Intact 50 percent of Zambias copper has to go through that road.

God will surely punish these guys for making his people suffer so helplessly,he said

    IT IS SO ANNOYING INDEED!! INSTEAD MAKING ROADS in SANDY DAMBOS were people do not even appreciate they NEGLECT WHERE THE MONEY TO RUN THE ECONOMY IS COMING FROM and where PEOPLE ARE TOLERANT and accommodating ! I AM NOT FROM NW but as a ZAMBIA I ALSO FEEL HURT TO SEE THE NEGLECT ON THIS ROAD and the number of LIES THAT HAVE BEEN TOLD. PF HAS NO POLITICAL STRATEGY; INSTEAD BRING NW ON BOARD THEY STILL KEEP POURING MONEY in UNGRATEFUL WESTERN and SOUTHERN PROVINCES instead PRIOTIZING a more ETHNICALLY DIVERSE and LESS RADICAL NW!! GOOD PROJECTS IN NW and CB RURAL CAN PUT PF on far BETTER FOOTING FOR 2021 ELECTIONS BUT….aweee sure !!

      So how did they know that what they have is false information?

      Or is it that they have no information now they want some information?

      What truth don’t they have?

      And when you say the people of Solwezi, how many are those people?

      I would like to be sincere here as a staunch die hard PF blogger!
      With all honesty the current road works that are underway are for the complete construction of the road, not just resurfacing which is why it is taking long so residents of the area must try and understand, lasty the corporate mining world have now also got on board to fix the roads seeing they are the ones responsible for damaging these roads. .
      Mr President sir, let’s hear the pleas of the people- let’s do aways with expensive luxury SUVs those huge bills to buy such vehicles could be used on such road works as this.

      @Bwafyaa: here is a short explainer for you. If you convince enough people in SP and WP, then you have most of the people on your side. If you convince any group of people in NWP, you only have a third of the people on your side. NWP has the most diverse ethnic groups in Zambia who may not necessarily like each other (Dealing with Luvales and Lundas in Zambezi is like running a kindergarten). Even 3 out of the 7 languages on national radio come from this one province. Yet it is the least densely populated area in Zambia. To help you, PF are wising up to the law of diminishing returns – in NWP, they get the least whack out of every fart they produce.

      Enough is enough, it is time for North Westerners to pick up arms and defend their sovereinity. I t is a fact that this government does not care about the development in North Western province. It was like this in Sudan, southern Sudan had to ignite for its independence. What are the people of north western province waiting for? They have everything, all the resources are in the province. Rise up North Westerners, the time has come. If it means going in Jiundu do it, it it means destroying strategic links to the province, do it. Your land is rich in everything so why worry? You are not second class citizens. Rise up and stand together. There will be no better time than now to claim your independence.

Do know how much money comes from NWP into government coffers and being used on other projects? If you have no idea about the subject you lose nothing by keeping quiet and inquire where NWP stands on the Zambian map.

    Those are the benefits of voting for HH and his MPs as all HH and his team know is criticing Govnt instead of helping in solving our problems!!!but since PF has a listening president in ECL,in 2017 that road will be done.its a pity that HH’s petitions deleyed the works on this road because if contractors moved on site few days after 11/08/2016,the most affected area on this road could have been finished by now.but since works were deleyed by the man they voted for via his petitions,solwezi residents will only enjoy good results in 2017 because of the rains now.

    Here is the truth: PF do not give a monkey’s for development in NWP. They will never get enough votes from you. They spent $10 billion on roads going nowhere in Lusaka and Copperbelt and 3 universities in Muchinga because that is where their supporters are. PF will squeeze all resources out of NWP to develop other provinces. Remember how Sata and Chimbwili called you “namazai”? That’s the result. No respect, no compassion for you as fellow Zambians, just good for abuse and exploitation.

      You are either a PF propagandist or a child who should not be on this site. These insults were Sata’s staple before he became President. Chimbwili took up the same clarion call in 2010 in Luanshya. When people who originate from NWP protested at the civic centre, Chimbwili followed them there and continued to shout at and insult them. If you missed these stories, ask the liquidator who now controls the Post archives. You cannot rewrite history. That’s why Sata never campaigned in NWP in 2011. He had utter contempt for people from there.

    By the way people should not think that this is the first time mining is taking place in NWP. There was Kansanshi and Kalengwa and yet both the Colonial and Unip governments never bothered to make permanent roads there. At least now people are now discussing the issue and government has started to do something. Of course the road won’t just come “abragadara “.

      Your logic (more lack thereof) is flawed. So NWP cannot be improved because the colonialists and Unip never developed the Province? In any case the scale of mining then was nothing compared to what is happening now. Even for lining the coffers that your relatives are plundering, not developing the roads in NWP will limit how much they can steal from there. Or you want to keep the copper in the ground for our descendants?

      This is the sad part of democracy. I am all for realigning these African countries that were drawn up by some German clerks at the 1884 Berlin Conference who had never set foot in Africa. Countries like Zambia are doomed to failure due to culture clashes. The chaotic, thieving northerners versus the ingratiating easterners versus the long term southern farmers versus the administrative-minded westerners form a toxic mix that is bound to collapse in chaos and bloodshed. The prospects for a prosperous Zambia are quite dim. And if you think Zambia has problems just look at DRC or Zimbabwe!

    Fellow Zambians let’s debate sensibly lets not instill any sense of hate in the minds of NW’ers. The issue of the Chingola/Solwezi Road is a complex one and mind you it has mainly to do with the design. The design was delayed because the Architect changed it to suit the amount of heavy traffic that uses it, and mainly it is the 3 mines that should take the blame. FQM, Lumwana and Kalumbila are the main users of the road and ONLY FQM is seen to at least maintain it for the past 7 years at their cost. The people of NWP should also engage Lumwana as well and not only government, these guys have been taking Zambian people for granted for such a long time and have gone scot free.

    This is the problem of recognizing people based on talent or mineral resources. The suffering being experienced by the NWP is nothing but a historical stigma of regarding them as low class citizens, only best described as the SAMAZAI’s, (toilet cleaners). This was common in the CB Province. To the extent my people from NWP had to abandon even communicating in their indigenous vernaculars, to survive the humiliation and choose to communicate in Bemba, even when they are in their respective homes. Today the likes of Bwafaa above want to sympathize with NWP, because it is the major contributor to the GDP of the country.

I have live with Kaondes myself, these guys are not as humble and docile as Zambians think. Let us not push them to the wall. They will do some so crazy and Zambia will never be the same again.

But is it fair that the same tribe and others from the same region, NWP, to face such neglect because they are what they are being perceived in the society, even when they are the biggest contributors to the GDP?? Are they not human beings like other people from some tribes that want to be superior at all costs?? Who will tolerate this and for how long??? Education and good infrastructures are taken to other provinces, our children are learning under the trees and when we find comfort to vote for HH, we are labelled tribalists and inferior (moscow above). Remember, the biggest sin in the eyes of God is not even murder or adultery, it is PRIDE. It is the same pride that made God to dethrone the Angel Lucifer and cast him into hell fire. Your pride is…

      There are a lot other more meaningful places to find comfort than ‘to vote for HH’. You have mentioned God in your post and I would urge you to seriously consider finding comfort in Him.

      You are looking for comfort in wrong places…!

    Your pride is fertilized by your conscious that it is you who deserve to rule for ever and when others say,” Let us share the executive leadership of nation’, You jump with tribalism stories. Yet it is you who are the worst TRIBALIST in this country and Worst HATERS of other tribes. Christian nation. What a fallacy deserving God’s anger.

    i think its unfair for people of N/W province to claim that they are tired of fake promises as if they believed at one point the pf promises to be real. they new that they are fake promises thats why they voted for HH. but why complaining when you didnt believe in their manifesto

    @upnd. People from NWP, don’t need to be served with PF Manifesto as if they are in a restaurant where they need a food menu in order to choose what one should eat or order. State Leadership should be driven by the ability of the leaders to know and understand the comparative advantages of all the provinces and Marshall these advantages into developing infrastructures that support economic growth for the benefit of all. If the PF manifesto includes and validates stealing of resources from NWP to build universities in other provinces then it is good to reject it even in 2021. Leave our resources to develop our province and stay with your useless manifesto.

    You sell your mines for $25m a resource that you own. Then you keep plundering with impunity. Then expect people to vote for you. Especially when you were told we have no vision, or we are carrying on the legacy of MCS. Then you vote for the ‘Humble one’ and now your country is supposedly broke and the IMF are your ‘bestie’. I can see why WP is stubborn, best to keep the natural resource than have it looted! Ignorance is not bliss, and docility will bring Zambia to its knees. Forefathers must be looking on to see what a mess this is. We are free really? Gosh disheartening especially when you hear the stories from our parents, grandparents. Zambia is now a shadow of what it once was.

    How come countries emerging from civil strife, hurricanes, earthquakes and genocide leap-fog our peaceful Zambia at every turn? As I see it, our suffering points to lack of selfless leaders among politicians. Instead, all we see around us is a plethora of political hoodlums masquerading as leaders. While citizens of earthquake prone countries endure all manner of destruction, year -in year out, it is we the citizens of a peaceful and blessed nation that lead lives of destitution. What irony! To my mind, we daily suffer deprivation because the heads of our ‘leaders’ are full of earthquakes, hurricanes, and all – and a head that harbors such destructive forces spells more doom to a nation than the tsunami of Japan or Indonesia. We all have a solemn duty to search for true leaders among us…

    Calling people outside NWP economic refugees is not fair. Just know that there are hundreds of “your people ” farming in Luapula Province and they are appreciated for their contribution. How come Mines haven’t been able to fullfill their labor requirements from among the locals? Dr Sondashi tried this but it backfired as people from other provinces started to boycott the province because of his “insults ” against outsiders.

    This is heartbreaking to note that people are neglected in this way. How much will they ask for government to know that they are also human beings, deserving to enjoy the benefits that others are enjoying.?? It makes me to believe now that the resentments expressed by my cousins from WP, (the Lozi), are very genuine. They foresaw that the so called independence of Zambia was just a replacement of white colonialism with black domination of the arrogant and evil minded and non remorseful NER labour migrant settlers. We have ourselves to blame anyway for accepting the deceitful tactics of these people. They will never be accommodative and appreciate the leadership of other tribes.

The Americans failed to convince the Lozis to open up their oil and gas resources. The oppenheimer family of De Beers, were told to leave the Diamond resources in that area. The British Monarch through Cecil Rhodes, were told to settle elsewhere and conduct mining outside the lozi territory. No wonder South Africa honoured King Lewanika, That King was too intelligent for any government. VIVA my cousins, protect the resources from the thieves.

    Despite the massive PF roads construction they still had to rig to balance up the votes even winning in six or seven provinces could not help things. This is how bad things are. This is what pains PF. This time they won’t done any appeasing jobs anywhere;they already know they will still loose at votes. So they are out to mess up and come 2021 rig again.
