Copperbelt Minister Bowman Lusambo has described the latest visit of President Edgar Lungu to the Copperbelt as highly successful.

Mr Lusambo said the presidential visit has given momentum to the provincial administration to accelerate the development programmes in the province.

He said the three day tour also presented an opportunity to ordinary residents of the Copperbelt to interact with the Head of State.

Mr Lusambo was commenting on President Lungu’s three day visit to the Copperbelt from Friday which was concluded on Sunday afternoon.

“For us as the Copperbelt administration, we are pleased that the tour was highly successful. President Lungu inspected a number of developmental projects but most significantly, he was able to meet ordinary people and hear their challenges,” Mr Lusambo said.

The Copperbelt Minister stated that the presidential grassroot tours are essential for project monitoring and ensuring that the wheels of development are turning.

President Lungu kicked off his visit by officiating at the ground breaking ceremony of the first ever PF Provincial Convention Centre in Ndola and proceeded to Masala Township where he inspected the serious sewer problems in Lubutu area.

President Lungu was not happy with sanitation conditions in Masala Township despite investing US$104 million from DANIDA in the sanitation improvement project.

The Head of State then directed Mr Lusambo to resolve the sewer problem and handed a week ultimatum to ensure that all blockages and drainages are unblocked.

President Lungu then proceeded to Masala Main Market and toured the main market and other houses within main Masala and addressed a huge crowd that came to catch a glimpse of him.

President Lungu also visited Mufulira district where he inspected staff houses at Mokambo border post.

He was pleased to see the quality of houses and he promised that the nice houses given to the workers there will be replicated with nice offices such as the police posts and immigration offices.

President Lungu stated that the Ministry of Home Affairs will have 12,000 staff houses constructed for workers under the Ministry.

The Head of State further stated that the immigration offices at Mokambo need to be modernised and fitted with e-facilities.

President Lungu later proceeded to Mufulira town where he inspected two Markets, the town Market and Kamuchanga Market where he was not happy with the findings in the two markets especially that the market construction project had stalled.

President Lungu also commissioned the ZAFFICO pole treatment plant and visited Kalulushi Clay Brick Factory.

He later officiated at a sold out PF Provincial fundraising dinner in Kitwe at which millions of Kwacha was raised towards the construction of the PF Provincial Convention Centre.

President Lungu also attended a church service at UCZ Chimwemwe congregation in Kitwe and the congregants were excited to see President Lungu return to his home Church.
The Head of State was happy to meet one of his teachers during his Boy Scout days.

    • Where is PF getting funds to embark on such projects as the PF Provincial Convention Centre? Who gave them this piece of Land? What procedure did they follow; was it advertised to the public so that other political parties can also bid against the PF? Anyway history indeed repeats itself, the UNIP HQ is standing example its now GRZ Complex! PF build the incoming Administration will just turn it into the GRZ COPPERBELT PROVINCIAL CONVENTION CENTRE! Tapali ubwafya eyo! Its Corporate Social Cash Transfer for a property built using Tax Payers Money

    • Mwebena Zambia, would you kindly please wake up from docility. lungu gets more and more brazen by the day and gets away with it, thanks to Zambians’ legendary patience (stup!dity?). Everybody in Zambia knows that lungu is a hardened criminal, but that knowledge didn’t assist them to wisely choose a proper leader. He further said as far governing a nation is concerned he IS completely stup!d, again, amazingly people ignored this confession and picked him as their leader. Now he is telling them that he is entitled to steal state resources. That’s what the corrupt Bemba saying means : Uubomba mwibala alya ifya mwibala . This thug must be booted out fast!! And don’t wait till 2021! It will be too late.

    • The president’s visit to the Copperbelt was like that of a wanted man. People only heard that he was in this and this area, and he didn’t visit many areas as originally planned. Mwakaba mu Kopala for PF?

    • Chief bootlicker Lusambo says Lungu’s holiday was succesful. I agree with him because the president used insoselo ya mpupu ati “uubomba mwibala alya mwibala.” Only impupu can use such language encouraging his leutenants to steal from government coffers simply because the work where they can easily dip their long fingers in government coffers.

  5. Ba UPND, your corruption allegations which you cannot substantiate will certainly and surely take you to early graves. Anything good from PF is bad to you, why? Finshi kanshi amilisha uyu HH? The problem that you have in UPND is well known even to toddlers, its your ineffective leadership of HH. Sort out your leadership crises in UPND otherwise as long as you keep your feeble trust in the Under 5, you will just continue languishing whilst the rest are making very steady progress in life. Kick out HH and you will see the celebrations amongst your followers.

  6. Mr President please if any one can be honest with you for once.please stop listening to praises from the cabinet ministers they are lying to you. They take people from Lusaka, Kabwe, kapiri and create a crowd in the name of successful visit. You came to the copperbelt so let the copperbelt people meet you. I feel sorry for you because I can’t judge you for comments people make without facts. Take a private visit next time and try to visit homes and talk to the people without anyone around and you’ll know the truth and no one will ever lie to you. What’s happening now is what happened in MMD and the same people used to lie to Mr Banda former president on things on the ground. It’s not too late you can make PF great again but you need to look beyond friendship . Long live PF.

  7. I saw that video and looks like It was propagated by zwd because it only shows a clip were ecl said uubomba mwibala alya mwibala. Meanwhile when you watch the entire video he was actually warning the controlling offers against indulging themselves in criminalities because of the bemba adage …..uubomba mwibala alya mwibala. .. Upnd bogus social media zwd extracted a clip about the adage and put a heading saying ecl was encouraging the ps to steal . Only under5s have believed it and are fullishly referring to it like it’s something true.

  8. He officially declared this country a kleptocracy. This president has no idea the implication of the words that come out his mouth have on the listening public. He shouldn’t be a president in whom we entrusted taking care of national assets. They are obviously in the wrong hands with him at the helm. The day before he was in church and the next he is encouraging thieving. What a…….of a president!

  9. This last weekend a quarter of the cabinet was on the Copperbelt with Lungu, the other quarter was in Mongu with Inonge Wina. If one were to compute the expense to the taxpayer of both jaunts that is a lot of money that could have been spent on buying drugs for the hospitals. This is the reckless spending that the PF government is very good at! Pure daylight robbery by these heartless thieves!

  10. I didn’t see nor hear the said comment, but if true and not out of context, Mr. president I am disappointed. Reminds me of when Late President Chiluba in Luanshya said ; ” I know how to steal”
    Please , don’t allow that ‘ guy’ to gain mileage from you.

  12. It’s kleptomaniac conduct like this that killed Chiluba, Nino Perreira, Laurel Kabila & brought Zuma to the crossroads he finds himself at today. With Lungu, the end is bound to be horrific. Just how a full cycle retard like him could be president vexes me deeply. It says much about the gullibility of Zambians.
