President Edgar Lungu says government will this year construct the First Level Hospital in Chifubu Constituency in Ndola.

The President said he will soon meet with the Minister of Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya to discuss modalities of constructing the first level hospital in Chifubu Township to meet the increasing population.

ZANIS Ndola reports that President Lungu said this during a public meeting held at Chifubu Market this afternoon.

“As soon as I go back to Lusaka I will sit with Minister of Health to look at how we can build you a hospital, when we were campaigning in 2016, we said we will improve your living standards and giving you a hospital is fulfilling that promise,” he said.

The President said he is in Chifubu to thank the people for overwhelmingly voting for him during the 2016 General Elections.

President Lungu further said government will also consider constructing a modern market in the area that will improve the trading environment for the marketeers.

The President said this in response to an appeal made by Area Member of Parliament Frank Ngambi for a market shelter at the market.

Mr. Ngambi said most of the people in his constituency depend on trading and that the current status of the market is not conducive for business.

Meanwhile, President Lungu has retaliated that he will not be derailed by people that are insulting him as he has been mandated to deliver development to all corners of the country.

The President further advised people to be cautious of unfounded utterances by some politicians he said are reacting out of hatred after being dismissed from government.

And speaking earlier, Copperbelt Minister Japhen Mwakalombe observed that President Lungu is a humble leader who walks the talk.

Mr. Mwakalombe said it is unfortunate that some opposition politicians have resorted to discrediting government whenever they go out of the country, contrary to what is on the ground.

Meanwhile, Ndola Mayor Amon Chisenga appealed to the President to consider reverting the revocation of the Land Agency back to the Ndola City Council.

He explained that the council is failing to deliver its services to the public effectively because 50% of its revenue is raised through collection of land rates.

“Mr President if there is anything we did wrong as a Land Agency please forgive us and give us back that role because 50% of the council’s revenue is from Land rates,” he said.

  1. Meanwhile he has sent Yamba to beg for loans in Washington as he can not balance the budget…really laughable

    • Zambians can be stupid. It’s sad what hanger and poverty can do. Seriously you BELIEVE HIM?? He cannot even build a chicken rack to build a hospital?? GOD, GOD, GOD; Show use the SIGNAL to punish these Liars

    • Nostradumus,

      I concur with you. Lungu grew up in Chimwemwe which is much bigger township than Chifubu and he gives a first level hospital to Chifubu and not Chimwemwe in his home town of Kitwe? Mind boggling if you ask me!

    • Icikonko ba HH. Work with the President if you care about this country. Opposition is not about being a battering ram!

    • ECL IS JUST EXECUTING CAMPAIGN PROMISES. THATS HOW YOU WIN THE NEXT ELECTIONS. IT IS NOT DIALOGUING WITH BITTER LOSERS OR LISTENING TO DISTRACTION ORIENTED DELUSIONAL GOONS AND SICK SOCIOPATHS BUT BY EMBRACING PROGRESSIVE OPPOSITION LEADERS.
      =============================
      If ECL’S pronouncements hurt your tuma little egos, it means you did not vote for him in 2016. That being the case, shut your trumps and let him deliver to the wise and elite voters. The president’s remarks are pretty much original and unfaked. Thats what delivering looks like. Bwana kateka, revisit those campaign tapes and execute those promises. 2021 will be just easy.

    • EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU, ALIICEFYA. ECO AWININA AMA ELECTIONS. UKUICEFYA ON TOP OF UKUCITE FINTU. HH AFYELWE UWAFINA ELO ALIKONKANYAPO NOKU IFINYA. INTUNGULUSHI SHIFWAIKWA MULEKUMANAKO NA MUTU BALE MULENWINA PAMO FILYA FINE. NOT WAFULILWA FYE LIMO TAUMWENTULA NAKO NAMUKANWA MWALIBOLA. ELO WAKWATA FYE AMA PANGE YAKWIPAYO MUNOBE UWA WININE. ABEKALA CALO TABAFWAYA UYO MUFIMBILA WAMUYAYAYA. EDGAR, AKAWINA AGAIN. HECHI HECHI HAKALUSA HAGAIN.

    • Hospital by the end of the year? Wow thats 8 months to go Superman! A tiny little Tokyo Market hasn’t been completed in 4 months… lol.

    • If you truly love ECL, then you should feel sorry for him. Only desperation could have led him to make this empty promise that he is going to build a hospital, when his government is struggling to raise money. How reminiscent of the late Michael Sata who promised to build a stadium in Mongu. Any updates on that stadium?

    • The people. Botswana has no people. It has more cattle than people so there is very little need for infrastructure development. Get your facts in order.

    • Don’t comment on issues you don’t know and understand.Who told you that Botswana does not need infrastructure development?A spaghetti road has just been completed in Francistown and more will follow in Gaborone at a reasonable cost.Hospitals, Schools, Dams are being built all over the country.
      Here is a preview
      ‘The eleventh National Development Plan (NDP 11) is the first medium-term plan towards the implementation of the country’s second vision – Vision 2036. The Plan will run from 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2023.’
      What plans does Zambia have?Ni chikulekule fye.No consideration of cost or population.I totally agree with people who are saying Chimwemwe has more people than Chifubu.In fact was the hospital budgeted for in the budget?

  2. A patient with a laughable disease from the dept of hoolignism and bullying, a wing of the tribal grouping masquerading as a political party.

  3. I don’t care who the president is..nangu ni chagwa,hh,ck..all i care abt is the well being of the masses who are living in adject poverty.

  4. Has there been anything done that you ever saw sense in? Even when he opens one in Chimwemwe your tribal affiliation group will find another excuse from down there at the back.

  5. HH you will be extinct in 2021 unless you think very very carefully about a mature strategy to compete with a person you have mischievously labelled, Dictator, Drunkard, visionless, corrupt etc. most of the electorate do not see him that way. So bwana HH start thinking. Cyril Ramaphosa will not rescue you from your losing spree. Cyril has elections next year he has no time for cry-babies like you.

    • HH, nowadays, sounds like a broken record…they accuse ECL and his ministers of corruption, but they cannot do what Tayali did on Kambwili. Tayali did his own investigations on Kambwili, went with solid evidence to the police and he is key witness against Kambiwili…Why cant HH and his disciples do the same on ECL and his ministers?….shooting in the dark….? By 2020 HH and his followers will have nothing to tell the Zambians…

  6. A blind person can never see anything but for haters they can pretent that nothing has been done but y the same fake blind pipo are failing to give checks and balances but in return comes up with fake issues of impeachment, nationalit childish let lungu work and vote him out if Zambian in 2021 think he failed not u handful of haters

  7. Look at those slums and ugly shacks just behind EC Lungu .When is he gonna build first level living standards for these people? At least that way they won’t need much medical attention.

    • shacks are part of human existence since time immemorial….they are there in USA, RSA, Russia, name it…they were not introduced by ECL

  8. I am “very impressed” with the turn out at Lungus public meeting…..it reflects the level of unemployment in Zambia…

    • Exactly. People just have to go dance and share oxygen at such useless gatherings. Did he need to travel to Ndola to announce building a clinic? Really?

    • 80% of the Zambian population are informal sector, in other words self employed, so they can afford themselves time. If it were HH or his chidumbo you would have been saying…”see a mammoth rally by Haha…”

  9. People get leaders they deserve. If the Zambians want development, they can choose the right leaders and Edgar is not one of them.

  10. Ask yourselves, where is the money? Going to borrow again? What’s wrong with this guy. Secretary of treasury is literally kissing people’s behinds in DC to borrow more and in your fooolishness you are celebrating more borrowing. What type of people are you? What’s wrong with Ndola Central Hospital? Please stop this mad guy. You can’t borrow to extinction. Stop him.

  11. Go ahead and construct the facility for the people. Don’t listen to chaps who have eyes but can’t see the good good you are doing. Kopala nipali OF!

  12. NO HH, NO UPND. GBM IS THE DOOR MAT IN THE UPND. THEY ARE TRYING VERY HAD TO USE HIM FOR THEIR SELFISH AGENDA, BUT, WE ARE WATCHING THEM. I JUST FEEL FOR GBM.

  13. Continue with the infrustrure development ecl even the doubting tomases will appreciate you one day! Don’t spend time answering to them!

  14. If HH and his tongas in UPND think they will easily defeat PF in 2021,then they better think twice!!PF IS STILL MIGHTY AS NUMBERS DO NOT LIE!!I was at today’s PF rally in Ndola and hey it was massive!!
    Am sure this is why Kainde is now in a panic mood as he paints ECL black while us Zambians see a very good president in him(ECL)!!!Kainde will faint after losing for a record 6th time in 2021 and turn upnd into a terror group!!
    GO PF GO!!COME 2021 NI PF NAFUTI NAFUTI!!

  15. Most of the comments you see above are coming from gullible Zambians who feel Lungu is their savior. This I can assure you will be another lie like that of creating 500,000 jobs that never came. Lungu is becoming the Trump of Zambia. Lies lies and lies, and increasing the deficit beyond comprehension. Also trying to kill the media. In this lie, just know that there is no money. He should tell you where the money is gonna come from. Not just saying we shall build. Tell us how and where the money will come from. Tell us. We are waiting.

  16. Sociopaths and psychopaths cry foul as genuine voters see development about to unfold right before their very eyes. Mulimbe ba munyama. Jealous kills.

  17. @Jay Jay

    Unless yu steal money such as through privatisation schemes, its doubly impossible to buy a car, build houses, new roads, new furniture, etc from your pocket, without a loan. Why do you think the World Bank and IMF were formed? Everyone borrows.

  18. @Kalos2020:just continue marketing your loser Kainde.if you dont see development under PF,it is your own problem.Majority of us Zambians in 6.5 provinces have seen a lot of development under PF leadership since 2011.tribal jealous for ECL wont take your HH anywhere!!The mammoth rally you saw on ZNBC TV today shows how millions of Zambians still believe in PF.lies about ECL wont take your HH to plot one.your dull leader is busy wasting time talking about 2016 elections,ECL’s impeachment,ECL’s nationality,corruption WHILE THE SAME ECL UPND PAINT BLACK IS BEING APPRECIATED BY MILLIONS OF ZAMBIANS AS HE CONTINUES MOBILISING PF MEMBERS!!
    elections are not won by dreaming but by what PF did in Ndola today!!

    • Ask yourself the IQ of most Zambians or just grade levels of most PF cadres and supporters. They all think like you. Lower level thinking. Some do even have headaches when they try to think. The poverty in Zambia is not about the colonialists or white investors, it is all about poor leaders and hopeless citizenry.

    • What constitutes development is not just construction, it also involves human, social, economic, political and democratic development. Most of what we have seen is infrastructure developments. On political and democratic , economical, social and human development the score is low for our president. Zambia’s economy has slowed down ever since Pf came to power and the country has slipped deep into debt without an exit strategy.

    • Tell them, come 2021 PF will be on the look out for Cambridge Analytica in UPND so call strong holds

  19. As we speak h.h could be suffering a mental distress in South Africa for what he has done to himself and his party today , and his country.

  20. Build a hospital ? The people of kabwe are still waiting for mulungushi textiles that you promised them badala ???

  21. Zambians love to be lied to, the funny thing is that they will be waiting till 2050 for the so called hospital and no one will be questioning the so called promiser. Lungu is a crook who knows how to trick people. Hope reality hits these people hard so they can awaken from their stupor

  22. Need of the hour is to control expenses, including 90% cut on politicians salaries, with all perks withdrawn 100%.

    Mr. President , you are the head chef of the People of Zambia, you can not earn more than the average earnings of a peasant farmer.

    Cut your salary and stop travelling by planes, cars. Walk as do the peasant farmer and the miner.
    Live by example.

  23. Its interesting to note that some people can read and articulate very well the National development plan of another country and not understand their own 7th National development plan. Even if it might be implemented haphazardly, it is better to analyse it because I am sure it goes up to 2030. By 2021 there might be a new government. Are they telling us there is completely nothing that the new government will carry forward with? Then we won’t be moving forward as a country each time we change Government. Botswana has never changed government it only changed leaders.Let us focous on the current NDP and capitalize on the weakiness of the current Administration and tell people how those aspiring to lead will perfect it.

  24. PF is really working. Continue working hard and do not listen to noise makers. When you are drawing water, do not listen to frogs making noise. They are distractors. Just concentrate on drawing water .Thats my advice to PF.

  25. Fake promises do you think we are fools Mr. President? How many projects are pending? Remember one day for the thief another day for the owner hope you and your comrades will buy your way out this mess you making for yourselves.
