Vice President Inonge Wina (C) arrives at Mongu Airport today for ground breaking ceremony of a Modern Clinic in Lealui Ward and Inspect progress on the Cashew Infrastructure Development Project (CIDP) in Mongu District, Western Province.

Republican Vice-President Inonge Wina has expressed worry at the lack of monitoring of developmental projects by opposition Members of Parliament in Western Province.

Addressing people of Western Province upon arrival at Mongu Airport yesterday, Mrs. Wina said government secured loans from the World Bank to improve people’s livelihood through projects in water affairs, agriculture and other sectors, but the MPs in the region were not cross-checking and reporting the impact of such projects.

Mrs. Wina regretted that MPs from Western Province were not willing to work with government.

She has however urged people to forge ahead and develop a closer relationship with the PF government for them to be empowered from its campaign promises being actualised.

And Vice-President Wina said it is evident that President Edgar Lungu does not discriminate any province stating that the whole county was benefiting from his administration.

The Vice-President, who was welcomed by party officials and senior government officials from various districts of the province, is in the region to drum up support for Looma ward by-election in Nalikwanda constituency.

He said elections should never prompt violence or make people enemies.

And speaking earlier, Western Province Minister Richard Kapita said the region has started making strides from the time the people realised the importance of working with government.

Mr. Kapita added that the Vice-President will during her working visit lay the ground breaking brick for the construction of a modern clinic in Lealui.

He said it was gratifying that no violence has since been recorded in the constituency during the on-going campaigns.

Meanwhile, Western Province PF chairperson Charles Mututwa assured the people that the ruling party will merge victorious in Looma ward elections because many UPND members recently defected to the party.

Mr. Mututwa thanked the President and his Vice for their frequent visits to the province saying these were bearing fruits.

He said one of the fruits was the commencement of works for the overhaul construction of the Mongu-Limulunga road.

  1. Gogo Inonge, that is cheap politics. You know that your ruling party frustrates and does not fund opposition members of parliament for them to finish or implement projects in their areas.

    • The Government funds projects not members of parliament. Inonge is right. The problem with opposition MPs is that they do not want to co-operate with the Government in the implementation of the projects because they what it to fail. What happens in Parliament is what happens on the ground. The PF wants votes and they will live no stone unturned to get those votes. So how can they not fund projects because the MP in that area is in the opposition? Right now PF is gaining ground in opposition strongholds because people see the development to which you turn a blind eye. The truth is development is in every corner of this country regardless of parliamentary representation. Stop telling lies, even though it’s your nature in UPND.

  2. Kubweka… the projects have already been funded in Mongu in the area of Cashew project, Agriculture and the improvement of water in Mongu districts. The projects were funded by Govt in the opposition district but no involment of the MP in monitor the projects that is the concern.

    • The projects in WP are in line with the PF manifesto and the opposition MPs there feel bad about associating themselves with projects based on a manifesto that is not theirs. Crude and backward attitude. That’s why they will continue to lose elections because the people are now seeing through them and know that they are the causers of their problems.

  4. The woman of substance! What a leader! Love you Madam Vice President! Zambians must learn to be selfless and put Zambia above their blood lineage! That is the difference between PF and UPND.

  5. The Opposition MPs are scared of HH and he always urges them to sabotage, frustrate and boycott all government related activities. This is done in order for the people to rise against the PF government so that UPND can win sympathy from the electorate. Unfortunately this kind of politics ends up disadvantaging the regions where UPND is popular as the development is delayed. People should just support developmental projects regardless of who brings them. We can’t wait just for UPND to come in power while other regions are benefiting cause they have accepted the government and only God knows for how long. I don’t even know when UPND will form government if at they will.
