CHIEF Mwanachingwala of the Tonga people of Mazabuka district has thanked President Lungu for saving his life after ordering his evacuation to India for specialist treatment.
Chief Mwanachingwala said he wants to personally go to State House to thank the President for his gesture.
The traditional leader said President Lungu has demonstrated that he is a President for all irrespective of tribe.
“I was evacuated to India by President Lungu although I am Tonga because he does not look at the tribe of an individual,” Chief Mwanachingwala said.
He also appealed to Government to work on the road leading to his palace which is in a bad state.
He said this at his palace when Southern Province Minister Edify Hamukale paid a courtesy call on him.
And Dr Hamukale told the chief that President Lungu has released money to work on the Kalomo-Dundumwezi road and the Mazabuka by-pass.
Dr Hamukale said President Lungu is committed to developing the country even in areas where he was not voted for.
Dr Hamukale commended Chief Mwanachingwala for supporting the PF administration, and that Government values his counsel.
The chief is recuperating at his palace after undergoing specialist treatment in India.
