Chief Government Spokesman Chishimba Kambwili
Chishimba Kambwili

Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili says President Edgar Lungu’s emphasis of diversifying the economy must be taken seriously .

Speaking when he donated over 150 bags of fertilizer to his constituency in Luanshya, Dr. Kambwili urged Zambians to embrace the President’s call and begin to take agriculture as a business rather than a past time.

He said the donation of fertiliser is meant to enhace the agriculture sector in his constituency.

Dr. Kambwili said the distribution of seeds and fertilizer is one way of encouraging the community in his constituency to start practicing farming.

Dr. Kambwili who is also PF chairperson for sports is happy with efforts being made by small scale farmers in 14 cooperatives created since 2007 who have ventured in pig , chicken rearing and farming to continue .

And Dr. Kambwili has called for serious and dedicated investors in the mining sector.

He said mines must be handed over to proper investors who have the interests of Zambians at heart and the desire to help boost the economy.

And President Edgar Lungu has donated 250 thousand Kwacha towards the construction of the shelter at Chisokone market in Kitwe.

Presidential Affairs Minister Freedom Sikazwe, who handed over the money to Nkana Member of Parliament Alexander Chiteme in Kitwe, said the head of state wanted to see the shelter complete in two weeks.

Mr Sikazwe said President Lungu has further directed the Kitwe City Council to contribute the remaining 157 thousand Kwacha needed to finish the shelter.

He said the head of state has instructed the local authority to utilise the money it collects from marketeers at Chisokone market for the works.

Meanwhile, Kitwe Mayor Christopher Kangombe says council engineers will be on-site tomorrow to commence the works.

Mr Kangombe added that the structure is expected to be completed on schedule as directed by President Lungu.

And National Traders and Marketeers Association of Zambia President Goodson Mofya said the donation by the head of state will go a long way in alleviating the suffering of marketeers at the market.

Meanwhile, Association of Vendors and Marketeers in Zambia President Able Chikwa said the donation by President Lungu had proved his critics wrong.

Mr Chikwa said since the shelter collapsed two weeks ago, people were laughing at the marketeers and telling them that government had abandoned them.

  1. When is Zambian Politics going to mature…surely do we not see anything wrong with an Area MP donating items to his constituency…where is this corrupt man getting the funds for this: if you want to assist lobby for policies in Parliament INSTEAD of donating funds you have stolen from them. 5 years ago you couldn’t afford to obtain 150 bags of Fertilizer today you can.
    Why has the ACC gone silent on this BUFFOON’S case, is it in State House being used by Lazy Lungu to blackmail him to keep quiet.

    • I said this and I will say this again the longer Kambwili ACC file gathers dust in State House the more he will bribe his constituents and will come out as he is being victimised.

    • Only someone who doesnt understand the role of an MP would commend such acts, Mwanakatwe is another one who is good for this…if you went to Parliament to be donating to your constituents then you might as well not go there. The public elects Members of Parliament (MPs) to represent their interests and concerns in the National Assembly not give them hand outs with money you have stolen from them.

    • ” …the head of state wanted to see the shelter complete in two weeks.” ECl is indeed a man of action! It appears we have another Magufuli in our own State House.

    • There you go deciples of hh. Just because your rich demi God does not give then every one shouldn’t. Leave the givers to give otherwise we know you and your supreme leader are not supposed to give because that is one of your require ments in your organization.

    • “they slowly pay back”!!!!

      Slowly?

      If they have stolen public money they should IMMEDIATELY be arrested for theft and all their assets seized and auctioned until they have paid every Ngwee, plus any fines.

      No “slowly” for criminals!

    • @truth
      This is how myopic warped mindsets function and sadly these are the voters…corruption is so ingrained that they see nothing wrong with this …its as normal as a garden boy helping himself to the weekly fruit output of the orch yard. Or the customs Official asking for lunch money at KKIA Zambian arrivals counter…they see nothing absolutely wrong!!

  3. Roan constituency….. Any farm in the constituency or it’s backyard farming you want to praise??? If you say the habitants of roan have farm lands elsewhere, are you saying in those areas where pipo from Roan constituency own farm land, there are no cooperatives to access GVT fertiliser programe? Anyway, this one is a failled attempt

  10. In Zambia you can steal or be accused of corruption, as long as you are seen to donate from those stolen funds you are worshiped.

    just to show how bankrupt this kambwili is, he is one of the main suppliers to the mines, he has the chick to talk about diversification yet his companies get all their products from SA to supply the mines. even things like work cloths and gloves that can be made in Zambia……

  13. I’M RELUCTANT TO COMMENT ON CERTAIN ISSUES BUT SOMETIMES FEEL COMPELLED TO DO SO. THE MONEY THAT POLITICIANS DISH AROUND IS NEVER THEIR MONEY BUT OURS. B.Y. TRIED USING HIS PERSONAL MONEY, WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM? DIDN’T HE FINISH HIMSELF? ANALYZE SOME OF THOSE POLITICIANS YOU ARE PRAISING TODAY, HOW MUCH DID THEY HAVE BEFORE SITTING ON OUR MONEY? KAMBWILI HIMSELF IS BEING INVESTIGATED RIGHT NOW. AS LONG AS SUCH POLITICIANS HAVE PRAISE SINGERS WHO PRAISE BLINDLY, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO REAP FROM U & IN NO TIME, U WILL BE POORER THAN U WERE

  14. Instead of condemning Kabwili of the little (150) he gave you are condemning him for giving out to the need. Actually he was supposed to give more considering how much money he has. As for the president’s donation Thank you ECL.

  15. @JAY JAY LOW, what are you going to do about it, because even if your UPND men comes into power also will become rich in no time it is not like they are the first ones to become MPs, even yr. GBM was an MP who used to get all contracts e.g ZESCO & FRA so what do say even HH got rich through dubious means.

  16. I don’t know why some pipo r so shallow minded, what’s wrong with giving fertilizer to selected poor farmers, who doesn’t want to receive,. Most of u blaming hon Kambwili, forged your uncles death certificates so that u can obtain free education at unza olo cbu, then today u start castigating poor pipo receiving a bag of fertilizer from the area member of Parliament. Shame
