Vice President, Inonge Wina says government will ensure that people in the rural areas have access to Television satellites.

Mrs Wina said this will be undertaken under the Village Television programme which government has embarked on with support from Topstar.

Speaking upon arrival at Mongu Airport on a three day working visit in Western Province, the Vice President said the programme targets areas which do not access to electricity.

Mrs. Wina stated that she also launch three village Television satellites during her visit to the province.

And Provincial Patriotic Front (PF) Chairman, Charles Mututwa commended government on plans to continue with works on the different road projects which stalled especially the Katunda-Lukulu road.

Mr. Mututwa said the projects will create employment opportunities for the local people and boost trade in the area.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mututwa assured that Patriotic Front (PF) will win the two by-elections for Shikombwe and Mabili wards scheduled to take place on September 6, 2018.

The Vice President was welcomed by Minister of Justice Given Lubinda, Western Province Permanent Secretary, Sibanze Simuchoba, Sioma Member of Parliament Mbololwa Subulwa and Heads of government departments.

Meanwile, Acting President Inonge Wina says she expects the Zambia National Soccer Team to beat Namibia in the forthcoming football match.

Ms. Wina urged the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) to raise the game and uphold international standards if Zambia is to remain competitive in the world of soccer.

She said football is a source of unity in Zambia and urged the Chipolopolo Boys to work hard so as to meet the expectations of the
soccer fans.

The Acting Head of State said this in Lusaka when FAZ President Andrew Kamanga called on her at her office.

“I expect nothing less than a win in the Saturday CHAN engagement against Namibia,” Mrs. Wina said.

And FAZ President Andrew Kamanga disclosed that the association is decentralizing its activities to all parts of the country especially
in learning institutions dotted around Zambia through the Ministry of Education.

Kamanga adds that a programme has been planned for those not in schools through their respective Members of Parliament in order to cater for everyone.

The FAZ President who also highlighted the challenges the association is faced with was accompanied by the Acting Secretary General, Adrian Kashala and FAZ Associate Member, Chomba Kaoma.

This is according to a press statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka today by Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Vice President, Stephen Mwansa.

The Chipolopolo Boys are currently camped in South Africa in readiness for the clash on September 8th against the ‘Brave Warriors’ for the 2019 African Cup of Nations (CHAN) qualifiers.


  1. “Mrs Wina said this will be undertaken under the Village Television programme which government has embarked on with support from Topstar.”

    This senile Old Hen Bo Inonge, she is allowing Chinks in our backyard and she doesn’t know it.

    • The hard working government! Please stay focused, we know it will NEVER be president! The wicked will never rule Zambia! YOU are doing a great job Madam Vice President. It is jealousy.

    • Just last week we got disturbing news that western province kids are deserting school to search for jobs in Angola & namibia. Today we are being told that they need TV.
      Only a PF00L can give ice cream to a comatose patient & says s/hes cured

    • …and WiFi gogo. Miles Sampa is bringing free WiFi to Lusaka and you should do the big one. Take free WiFi to the rural areas. Go Gogo go!

    • Do we really need television satellite or we need sanitation and proper shelter (Housing)? Mama Inonge, your role should be emphasizing development basic needs for people and leave technology to people like Sampa and friends.
      It just doesnt show integrity of you to talk about satellites to villages when people have no food.

    • Go go ni Satellite yanyokp? PF in its current form represents everything that is wrong. They are there to impede innovation. TAX on WhatsApp, now taking satellite Television to the rural areas. Why not invest in innovation within the areas using our own vast resources. PF is a fraud and a liability to the cause of independence.

  2. Lazy bum illiterate hooligan bully tribal son of a polygamist tribal father who never taught him toilet training soiling in public Hagain.

  3. Television satellite so that you feed them with propaganda campaign news! Farmers need farming inputs by September to be able to plan effectively for the farming season especially for those involved in seed multiplication and also an economic selling price. I once tried farming, believe me it’s too risky, i would rather buy maize on the market at government floor price and resale it.

  4. I was thinking of starting a non-profit organisation to help UPND Tribal H-Organisation members donate their brain samples for analysis after they die but I also thought it is not just the brain that they have the problem. It is their soul as well. Lab analysis may miss the other disease.

  5. When Harm Nest speaks to harm the nests, Animo Farm thinks God has spoken! When (Animo Farms) harm Moise Katumbi, Harm Nest is silent and Animo Farm thinks we are children and we don’t know how the game is played! CHILDISH!

  6. It should be potable water first, where are your priorities. People that have grown up in villages and rural settings have the wrong priorities in life.

  7. PF lacks serious advisors on how to run the economy. Aljazzeera has it that of all the African countries owing China, Zambia leads the way n should start paying up….not so good news fellow countrymen


  9. We need investment but at the rate we are giving some of these licenses, i fear for mother Zambia. before we know it, the Chinese will be all over and it will be difficult to push them out.
