  2. I wouldn’t like anyone to judge the honourable MP even before he does the work, mind you he is a different person from Mukanga.
    Let him prove himself with what he can do with the constituent funds.

  3. ZMK350,000 is too little honorable to CONSTRUCT an ULTRA MODERN MARKET, withdraw the words ultramodern and replace them with a market to fit the 350,000 cash. I worked in kankoyo , pipo drink so much kachasu day in and day out hope Honourables efforts will change the mindset for people.

  6. It is good that the minister will donate 3 welding machines and find markets for their products of door frames etc.
    Question where will the youth get the money to buy steel, welding rods, grinders, discs and pay commercial rates for electricity.
