UPND Rufunsa Member of Parliament (MP), Shealy Mulyata has praised government for implementing various developmental programmes in Rufunsa district aimed at uplifting lives of the people.

ZANIS reports that Mrs. Mulyata expressed happiness that her request to government to attend to various developmental projects in the district owing to its status have been successfully completed.

She cited the upgrading of Shikabeta Primary School into a fully-fledged secondary school, construction of a modern palace for Chieftainess Shikabeta, completion of clinics as some of the major developmental projects completed.

The opposition law maker was speaking during the Nkombalyanga traditional ceremony of the Soli speaking people of Chieftainess Shikabeta of Rufunsa district.

Mrs. Mulyata however asked government to expedite the tarring of the Shikabeta road to ease the transportation of goods and people.

She further asked government to quickly construct staff houses for teachers and other public service workers that have been deployed in the area.

And speaking at the same event, Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo reaffirmed government’s commitment in completing all ongoing projects that were initiated following the declaration of districts in the province.

Mr. Lusambo cited the construction of a modern civic centre, 20 high cost and 30 medium cost houses for civil servants, and a modern police station.

The provincial minister said this in a speech read on his behalf by acting Lusaka Province Permanent Secretary, Josphat Lombe.

Mr. Lusambo who is also Kabushi MP praised traditional leaders in the province for working closely with government in ensuring that social services and people’s needs are met.

Earlier, Chieftainess Shikabeta commended government for implementing social cash transfer for vulnerable people in her chiefdom.

The traditional leader said many vulnerable people on the programme have seen their lives improved remarkably and now living happier lives.

Chieftainess Shikabeta said this through a representative Agness Kalonga-Shikabeta.

The Chieftainess implored government to quickly send relief food to the area to avert hunger that is looming due to failed crops in the last farming season.

She said the hunger situation has worsened because of the attack of the fall army worms on the crop that survived from the prolonged dry spell.

Various chiefs from Lusaka, Eastern and Central Provinces attended the ceremony.

Host District Commissioner Judith Chama and five others from Lusaka, Kafue, Luangwa, Chilanga and Chirundu were also in attendance.

Rufunsa Town Council Chairperson Bartholomew Kalambalala was joined by fellow council chairpersons from Lusaka Province.

Nkombalyanga traditional ceremony of the Soli speaking people of Chieftainess Shikabeta is held to celebrate the harvest from the previous farming season.

  1. Madam, thanks for the compliment to PF though you risk being fired by Halibelela Hukulusa. He doesn’t like upnd MPs who openly praise PF government for its works

    • Come 2021, the great leader is not going to adopt you madam. You might as well defect for going against the wisges of the great leader.

    • Perhaps the only sensible MP from this party I have seen not forgetting the jailed one who differed with Childish and refused to boycott parliament. These are the kind of MPs you need in the nation. Impartial and independent thinkers. Not tribal vuvuzelas like Mweetwa.

  2. Giving praise where it’s due is the best way to go and we will see development in our country if we change our mind sets. Proud of you madam.

  3. We are merely doing a reverse donchi kubeba on them..let them think they are doing well

  4. Uwa kwenshya ubushiku so goes the bemba saying. Like I said on Saturday, you can only believe what you see and not what you hear.

  5. #Hachi Hama ; do you want her to critisise for any good work done? no wonder you support PF’s wrongs;

  6. The change of political tone in the UPND gives hope that they’ve now began to see things differently. However they need to do more to tame lunatics like Mwiimbu, Nkombo, Mushipe, Kakoma, Sejani, Hichilema, Mweetwa, etc

  7. Breath of fresh air in UPND! Thank you madam for being magnamous and giving praise where it’s due! Seeing is believing.

  8. You will be fired Mrs. Mulyata! (Anyway, thank you for being brave!) HH and UPND are tribal parties which do not see any good in others except those from “together!” I concur, with #6, lunatics Mwiimbu, Nkombo, Mushipe, Kakoma, Sejani, Hichilema, Mweetwa, etc, too, will not be happy because Galu Watchers in Zambia, their biased news outlet they listen to will not let them move out of their tunnel vision.
