  1. The President last visit to Nakonde in 2016. promised that the Great North Road will be worked on…sadly,nothing has happened since then.Therefore,it will be very shameful for him to begin talking about the same road we only hope he is coming to visit because speaking about the road will be like fooling the residents.

  2. Every now and then he is in Muchinga province or other. What are the provincial ministers, perm. secs, district commissioners etc. for? Does he have to visit every so-called developmental project and ‘commission’ houses? Apparently he is going to visit 110 districts this year. What an allowance raising schedule and waste of resources! All that travel when there are officials based in those districts gobbles up loads of money unnecessarily. Lungu simply over does these tours.
