President Edgar Lungu says government remains committed to ensuring that all parts of the country are developed.

The President said this in Chipata, Eastern Province yesterday afternoon when he paid a courtesy call on Chieftainess Mpezeni shortly after his arrival.

And the Head of State has noted that government is ready to ensure that more schools and hospitals are constructed in the province including road infrastructure.

President Lungu has since requested Chief Mpezeni to provide guidance on which developmental projects should be priotised.

He noted that it was important to consult which infrastructure development should be priotised in order to have a plan on how projects can be implemented based on the finances available at a particular time.

The Head of State has also commissioned the new palace for Paramount Chief Mpezeni.

He has however expressed disappointment at the low pace at which palaces are being constructed countrywide, but has assured other royal highnesses whose palaces are under construction of having them completed.

Meanwhile, Chief Mpezeni has praised President Lungu for the development the country has seen in various sectors since the Patriotic Front government came into power.

The traditional Leader has however urged government to prioritise agriculture as it is the cornerstone of the country’s development.

  1. Is king mpezeni really real on his sitting posture before president EL , or he is just playing games.
    Those are the things I deeply think about.

    • The King of Kings, Nkosi Yama Nkosi. He is off step in his judgement. Just look at the way he is walking. I think there was an advance party with a brown envelop before meeting the President himself!

  2. U have been singing this song sir for a long time and we are seeing ACTION as witnessed in Dundumwezi please continue with the same spirit take development to all places whether they voted for u or not. Thus the goodness of ECL at the helm of PF he doesnt descriminate when it comes to development. Easterners are waiting for a railway line anyway!!!!!!!!!!!1

  3. Abanenu bacita publish ama plan, then sell those plans . Te kulanda fye pa kanwa ati we are committed to…. Show us the substance of your commitment.

    Talk is cheap!

    Shang’ombo is still Shang’ombo and so is Mgubudu.

  4. Vanduu muketasha. Before PF came in board, what was Shang’ombo? Today your area looks like you are part of this country because of PF. You want government to publish plans, which ones when the manifesto is there, seventh nation development is there, which plans are you talking about. Please do not expose your ignorance here. When the PF was constructing that Kalabo road, you talked rubbish, but today you are smilling. Rubbish.
