MINISTER of Development Planning Lucky Mulusa says Western Province has received the highest allocation of K32 million for completing implementation of development projects.

And 312 pupils out of the 500 who made it to grade 10 in Limulunga have no school places due to limited space at the newly-upgraded secondary school in the district.

Speaking when he paid a courtesy call at the Kuta in Limulunga Royal Village on Tuesday, Mr Mulusa said in December last year, Government released K32 million for completing the implementation of stalled projects in the province.

He assured the Kuta that contractors for stalled projects will be back on site as soon as all the paper work is done.
Mr Mulusa said the decentralisation programme the Patriotic Front administration is spearheading will help provinces to own projects.

“This government wants to take projects to the people by allowing the provincial administration to plan. In that way, money will first go to priority projects before being channeled to other sectors. For example, if priorities here are a school and roads, then the stadium can wait,” he said.

Mr Mulusa was responding to acting Ngambela Mukulwakasiko who wanted to know why most of the projects in the newly-created districts have stalled.

On the pupils who have no school places, Induna Mukulwakashiko appealed to Government to help address the situation.

Induna Mukulwakashiko said it is sad that the future of the pupils is uncertain as there are no places for them to continue their education.

The Ngambela also appealed to Government to allocate the area a vehicle for the Pilot Climate Change Resilience Project.

“We note that each of the 14 participating districts has been given a vehicle but the Kuta, which is also directly involved in this programme has been left out. How are we going to monitor if we do not have a vehicle?” he asked.

In response, Mr Mulusa said he will liaise with Ministry of General Education officials to find a solution for the affected pupils.

On provision of the vehicle, Mr Mulusa said his ministry will meet with implementers of the project to consider the appeal.

    • Mulusa which projects are you talking about? You’re now acting dull!!! You never did any sensible projects all you did was simply to initiate and now that you going to finish your useless projects you want to come out as if you have given Western a lot of money. Rubbish!!!

    • There’s a huge difference between an allocation or budget and actual funding. PF are good at such lies. And K32m is the type of money Lungu steals for himself from govt in one year.

    • Mulusa should fvck off and leave Malozi alone. Where is Satan’s Mongu Stadium and King Lewanika University? Why is the Mongu-Lusaka Road impassable around Nkeyema even after 6 years of a Chinese contractor camping there? Don’t try PF LIES, LIES, LIES in Barotseland.

    • Why don’t you always translate your Bemba “wise sayings”? Clearly you are not the intended audience.

  2. The Kuta is composed of very mediocre and self centred *****s!
    Amidst all this they pursue a vehicle for climate change monitoring!
    They should ask when the money will be in?
    Which stalled projects in particular will receive funding?
    What is the breakdown of the funding?
    Who are the controlling officers of this decentralised funding?
    What control measures are in place?
    Who decides which projects come first?
    A provincial sports complex in the line of the Olympic Youth Dev Project in Lusaka is more viable than building an entire stadium for mungu.

  3. So Western Province has received the highest allocation of funds for completing projects which have been stalling or gathering dust for how many years?
    Never mind this little fat shrewd man

  4. Mulusa, just because you go to solwezi by olane does not mean all is well with your home of origin. Mean while you are busy planning for infrastructure of appeasement in other provinces yet the Chingola Solwezi Road is full of craters, for they no longer qualify to be called pot holes.
    Do something about schools as well as health because really North Western has been neglected.
    We can’t allow the digging of huge holes there without anything to show about it. Do something.

  5. You go to Solwezi by plane. There is nothing happening in NW province – just huge holes in the ground and nothing to show for it.
