President Edgar Lungu being welcomed by Chibombo residents on his arrival at Kakoma Place in Chibomba district of Central Province during his two days working Visit

President Edgar Lungu has said his government will not hesitate to dissolve any council that will fail to deliver according to people’s expectations. The President said he was not happy with the filthiness at Mwayasunka market in Chisamba district. Mr. Lungu was speaking shortly after he toured the market.

The President said any under performing council, whether dominated by the Patriotic Front (PF) or the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND), would be dissolved because government wants to make a difference in people’s lives.

Mr. Lungu said garbage in public markets must be emptied regularly. He has since directed that the levy collected from markets must be used for the intended purpose.

He took to task the Ward Development Committee (WDC) chairman Arnold Munkondya for allegedly failing to deliver according to people’s expectations in the market.

Mr. Munkondya was at pains to explain to the President the reason why the market was filthy.

Earlier, President Lungu toured Mwayasunka Primary School where he interacted with pupils whom he urged not to be lured into early marriages.

He said it was only by acquiring a better education that the pupils would be able to lead better lives.

And a grade nine pupil at the same school, Choolwe Chalimbana, appealed to the President to help improve the floors in classrooms.

Chalimbana said the floors were cracked hence the need to mend them and also to construct new classrooms.

Meanwhile, school head teacher Kingstone Mutandwa appealed to the Head of State to assist the school with the construction of two new staff houses.

In response, President Lungu promised to look into the plight of pupils and teachers at the institution.

    • This is a worrying tendacy exhibited by Lungu all talk and no action.
      This explains why there is rampant and indiscriminate indiscipline in both the party and government it all ends up in just threats!

    • It shouldn’t take the whole president to talk. Let the law talk and those responsible to ensure the filth is not at the market Disciplined. You will see change. Each individual working or not should be responsible for their action or responsibility. Allow rule of law and not the president issuing empty talks. There is far greater responsibility the president should be worrying about or maybe he doesn’t know his responsibility?

YOUR MINISTERS’ INETIA WILL DRUG ON INTO NEXT ELECTIONS. “NKAYA MAILO APWILE UBUNGA MU KATONDO”. ACT NOW- WE HAVE HEARD MILLION WARNINGS AGAINST YOUR MINISTERS AND OTHERS FOR TOO FAR TOO LONG WITHOUT ACTIONS.

    • Finally he’s doing his job. Credit goes to all the patriotic Zambians who made this lazy administration begin to do their job. Lungu should’ve been doing this since 2015. Either he didn’t know what he was supposed to be doing, or he was just lazing around. Either way, we made him start doing something. Ladies and gentlemen, let’s all pat each other on the backs. Congratulations. But we’re not done yet. Let’s keep talking. Otherwise this administration will go right back to sleep.

    • Do not just threaten. You have to act. In developed countries like USA, people work while bearing in mind that they can be replaced any time if they’re not performing well. Only in Zambia do the managers come late for work, hang their jackets on their leather chairs and then disappear from the office. And at the end of the month they expect to be paid for doing nothing. Fire the non performing slackers. Replace them with people who’re willing to do the job. That way you shape people’s work habits faster. People learn when they see you act, and not by empty threats. Remove the lazy bums from office, and replace them with hard working qualified people.

    • CAN LEGAL MINDS AND PRESSURE GROUPS HELP FAMILIES WHO HAVE LOST LOVED ONES SEEK LEGAL REDRESS. SURELY SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHOLERA, IT’S ABOUT TIME PEOPLE ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS OR LACK OF ACTION IT.

  4. There you go! They collect Leeves from marketeers and only God knows where the money goes. It is the same story over and over all across the Country. Does it really have to take the Republican President to inspect every market and public facility to remind people responsible for the upkeep of these places/facilities that they are filthy? What happened to our Civil Service in Zanbia kanshi?!

    Some of these things really doesn’t need that much BRAIN POWER to know and realize that something ain’t right. And living or doing business surrounded by filth and dirt is a sign of people deliberately failing or refusing to think, use initiative and ack right. The President doesn’t have to come and remind you of this….IT IS COMMON SENSE PEOPLE!

    This mentality of always waiting for the Govt…

    • Continue:

      … in Lusaka to come and do things for, even stuff you can ably correct yourselves, ought to stop! It is outdated, archaic, and silly. Let us stop this INTELLECTUAL LAZINESS that has become a cancer among our Local Govt employees….it is killing the charactor and future of our Zanbia!

      Millions of residents in Lusaka do have access to clean drinking water or clean sanitation , they use holes in the ground as tolilets poluting the water right in the capital city while the theif just oversaw spending $17 billion……even in chawama where he came from still drinking dirty water and sh.iting in holes..

      So all you see is tribe tribe tribe. You need to change your mentality. Who told you that Tongas are the only people seeing the rot in ELC. Even us from Bembaland we are voicing out here. WTF is wrong with you Zambians?

  10. He can not fire any one in his cabinet because he is guilty of the sale corrupt practises as his ministers. He is afraid they will divulge even more of the rot that is going on, if he should fire them. They have become an albatross around his neck! He will go down with them!

  12. It is okay Mr. President if they are not working! Cholera could not have been there if they were working. Only one cholera case is a challenge to Zambia! We need to treat it!
