COPPERBELT Minister Bowman Lusambo says President Lungu has become more popular in the province following the massive infrastructural development projects being undertaken.

Mr Lusambo says developmental projects such as the construction of international airport, township roads and the installation of Kafulafuta water projects have earned President Lungu accolades from the residents in the province.

He was speaking when he featured on Radio Sun FM’s Breakfast Show in Ndola yesterday.

“Copperbelt Province is positioning itself to contribute significantly to the growth of the country’s economy. The future looks bright for the province as evidenced by the promotion of agriculture, manufacturing and mining sectors,” he said.

He assured all the 10 districts on the Copperbelt that they will benefit from the projects that President Lungu has continued initiating aimed at improving the socio-economic welfare of citizens.

Mr Lusambo said President Lungu wants to transform the province into an industrial zone.

He said the province is politically and economically stable and that the Patriotic Front (PF) provincial leadership is working as a team to protect and mobilise the ruling party.

Meanwhile, Chifubu member of Parliament (MP) Frank Ng’ambi has urged residents in his constituency to support impeding plans for a US$6 million FM’s shopping mall to be constructed by a named South African company.

Speaking on FM’s Between the Cover radio programme yesterday, Mr Ng’ambi said the project is already in the pipeline and investors are happy with the site and are only waiting for authorisation from the Ministry of Local Government.

“When Shoprite comes to the area, we expect more people to be employed and traders to have more business opportunities. I am surprised that people having grocery shops seem to be resisting that the chain stores will get their business,” he said.

  2. I think the best is to say the Government has done this and not to personalise our President of Zambia because everyone knows that President Edgar Chagwa Lungu is the head of the State inclusive of Government…Dr Bowman Lusambo h.c is not a genuine guy always trying to get the attention of the Republican President of Zambia…

Zambians are the most laziest people in the world! it seems only the Zambian Presidents work…..by the way do people in Zambia know the meaning of massive infrastructure is all about when you still use pit latrines in Matero, Mutendere, Bauleni, Kanyama……please note that poverty is a state of mind!
