Chief Chama of the Chishinga people in Kawambwa District has appealed to
Government to work on the deplorable Chibote-Chama road which leads to his Palace.
Speaking when Luapula Province Permanent Secretary Dr. Buleti
Nsemukila paid a courtesy call on him, the Chief said owing to the bad
state of the road, the vehicle he bought for himself from his savings
has been damaged beyond repair after using it twice on the road.
He appealed to government to work on the road starting in May when the
rains subside because most farmers in the area depend on it
to deliver their farm produce to the markets.
The Chief said he is happy that the Patriotic Front won the August
2016 quadruple elections so that they could continue with the many
developmental projects in Kawambwa and the Chibote –Chama road is one
the projects which should be taken seriously.
Luapula Province Permanent Secretary Dr. Buleti Nsemukila agreed with
the Chief that the state of the road is unbearable because in some
portions, the grass has overgrown.
He said the situation shows that the road has been neglected for a long time.
Dr. Nsemukila informed the Chief that he has endured the hardships on
the road to reach the Palace and Government will actively give the
road the attention it deserves.
