Mandevu Constituency Lawmaker Jean Kapata handed over a Saro 5900 DI TAFE Tractor to Ngwerere Ward 19 in Chilulu Garden Compound for garbage collection purposes.

And a resident of Ngwerere Innocent Daka expressed gratitude towards the donation.

“I commend Ms. Jean Kapata for securing the tractor as this will help clean the ward in terms of garbage under the Keep Garden Clean Campaign” Mr. Banda said

      I can understand the pain and embarrassment by the PF govt. of not having been invited to officiate at the Lwiindi-Gonde ceremony in Monze last week!

      Can surely launching a tractor for garbage collection in a slum make up for the shame suffered? …

    In today’s Zambia, everyone is excited to know the price of the truck.

    Tipima price. A reasonably priced dotcom truck should be in the region of $1m, or so we hear.

    Kaya.

      The headline “TRUCK” Is that tractor a truck???
      These two heavy duty vehicles are NOT the same. And a tractor without a trailer or pick will be useless

    This could be from the sale of the ill-gotten mukula tree. Kaili timvela ati muzimai uyu agulisa mukula.

    If PF left the office today, where would they get the money to donate?

    Please, give credit to whom credit due. Donors and taxpayer

    Imagine! Am also wondering because that is not personal money. That money belongs to the people. And the imbeciles are busy clapping and praising.

    That Tractor was acquired by using Public Funds, Ward Development Fund, it can not be a DONATION… The money used in procuring that Tractor was intended for that Ward…

    It so shameful how these grade 3 ministers misrepresent facts…. It is not a DONATION iwe Jean Kapata…

    It is interesting that such behavior is being exhibited by a former nurse ( care giver), mother and wife.
    Charity begins at Home, Mr Kapata must be in trouble but its not surprising Jean’s face shows no emotion at all. shes like a terminator with no love.
    Ba Kapata just enjoy the mukula money through chineese and zafficco and spare us the violence.

    Big fanfare in handing over a tractor. What was in place before, in terms of garbage collection?
