  1. Howard Kunda is always in Ndola. These are the people Chagwa was complaining about. His talk of relief food when people need farming inputs just goes to show how distant he is from his constituency.

  2. These people are the same, I wonder why we even vote for them. I guess the adoption process leaves us with no better choice as they impose on us unfit candidates…. What the honourable chief said is very correct, these politicians are very heartless n selfish individuals it’s like they drink from the same glass of concoction….

  3. This is the problem of voting for a same person many times.this Howard Kunda took over from his late father Mr George Kunda.sadly last year Hon.Ngosa Simbyakula of PF missed nominations as he arrived late.atleast if PF defeated Howard Kunda,the people of muchinga constituency could have seen change by now.too bad for these voters.am sure its the same in many contituencies especially in Southern where MPs like Jack Mwiimbu,Garry Nkombo,etc have over stayed.The people of Chipili kicked out Davis Mwila who over stayed and only visited them during elections!!!kudos must go to hard working MPs such as Harry Kalaba,Dr.Chitalu Chilufya who are always working in their constituencies!!Go PF Go!!

    • Very intelligent contribution. Voters should have power to change leaders. If the party feels mighty, kick their man out!

  4. I think representation should be among residents in the particular areas. This one time visit doesn’t represent daily challenges contuencies face. How can u be in lusaka and address doctors and nurses issues on phone. I think this needs to be looked into and change the representation issue

  6. Bwana Chief – you should file this away and wait for the next elections. Make sure your people don’t vote for him.

  7. What don’t we put stiff punishments like sentencing an MP to 5years imprisonment if they don’t visit their constituency in two months. It might sound drastic and draconian but if it’s the only way that can help, why not?

  9. Howard Kunda MMD MP has urged government to take development and work on roads in Serenje’s chief Chisomo but PF government has not done anything at all. It appears development is done on pick and choose areas of Zambia. Where PF is unpopular, that area is punished with a common brush of young and old people denying them development. UNIP and MMD were governments that never discriminated against any area. As at now, Serenje area and Southern region are denied development for not supporting PF government.

  10. Chipili opted to kick out Davies Mwila in preference for an independent. That’s very progressive move which one would wish could be replicated in other parts of the country. Why is it some regions don’t even seem to have capable independent candidates? Losses by the likes of Mwila and Mufulira’s Mukanga should be enough to open people’s minds to more objective voting. It cannot be true that the upnd mps who have held on to the seats since Mazoka are the best brains in those areas unless there’s something wrong
