Transport and Communications Minister Brian Mushimba says Zambia is likely to receive a favourable rainfall pattern between October and December this year.

Speaking during the presentation of the 2017/2018 rain season forecast at Lusaka’s Pamodzi Hotel today, Engineer Mushimba said the forecast indicates that there will be a high chance of receiving normal rainfall over most parts of the country except for North-East part of Zambia which comprises Isoka, Chama, Nakonde and northern part of Lundazi District and surrounding areas.

Engineer Mushimba has since urged farmers and other stakeholders to regularly get in touch with his ministry to access meteorological forecasts and further updates.

Engineer Mushimba has also encouraged the general public to plant trees as a measure to mitigate climate chance and contribute to improving rainfall pattern and performance in Zambia.

“Zambia is likely to receive a favourable rainfall pattern between October and December this year” Mushimba said

And the Transport and Communications Minister has since informed the nation about the implications that comes with the 2017/2018 rain season such as floods especially in flood prone areas like Eastern, western and southern provinces.

“I wish to inform the nation about the implications that comes with the 2017/2018 rain season such as floods especially in flood prone areas like Eastern, western and southern provinces” Mushimba said

    Is this man a meteorologist now? He promises too much. We are still waiting for the white elephant called zambia airways.

      Uko!
      Just imagine Juliet Perth?
      Please people, since when did engineer Mushimba the transport minister become a meteorologist of forecasts? Visionless PF bandits with their chipantepante spokesman ship at the helm of unknown talks.
      Yes planting trees is good Mr Engineer but your assumptions about the whether pattern of not raining in North East of Isoka or Lundazi etc lacks credence to realist professionalism.
      Anyway so when will load shedding ever end when kariba dam recorded over 90% held rainfall PF bandits of visionless Lungu illegally in power?

      Meteorological department is in the Ministry of Transport and communications. So, what is wrong with the Minister saying something from one of his Departments?

    I have been reading a lot of articles and comments on this blog. Some are funny, some educative, some are not near any of the two. What I have come to understand is that many bloggers are proper empty tins with shallow way of critically analyse issues. When it is political article hell breaks lose; when it is an international article talking of real issues commenters are few to none. worse if it a proper professional article you are luck to read more than five comments. Social media is an opportunity to learn a lot of new things positively if one is serious. This article has brought out to things ignorance and knowledge. Some bloggers have just confirmed that they know nothing about how government let alone minister’s roles. The Minister is a chief spokesperson of the ministry. He/she…

    The case of Hon. Lubinda is the profound in this instance. he is in one of the most tricky minister but he makes ministerial pronouncements fully mentored by his staff/PS. That is what Mushimba did and does.
    Munshimba has not committed any crime. The only wrong he has done is to expose your ignorance without your permission.
