FILE: Senior Chief Chiwala stresses a point as Copperbelt Minister Bowman Lusambo looks on
Senior Chief Chiwala of the Lamba speaking people in Masaiti district of the Copperbelt says he will not ask government again about the poor state of roads in his chiefdom.

The traditional leader said enough is enough as he has complained a lot.

He said he fears what will happen and how his people will be moving with the coming of the rain season.

Senior Chief Chiwala said despite having been assured that roads will be worked on, nothing is coming forth.

“I think we have talked enough. I have complained enough. The roads are in a bad state. And the rains are almost here, so am wondering how our people will be moving.”

“Look, we only been given stretch of from Ndola-Kabwe road junction to somewhere at Chiwala Secondary School. Now what of the first of the areas? How will people move? We have asked RDA but nothing is coming,” the traditional leader said.

He said for now, there is no hope of any roads because the rains are starting in a few weeks.

Senior Chief Chiwala said he hopes that the government will take his concerns of poor roads.

  1. The chief is delusional.

    How on earth do you not praise presidential Lungu.

    People like him make my blood boil. I’m pulling my hair as I type.

    Ungrateful isn’t he ?

    Thanks

    • Ba Mwiine Chiwala has every right to feel frustrated.
      Yet a senior govt officer is today ordering the latest fleet of luxury SUVs for his fellow senior govt officers and govt is footing the bill. They are busy approving their salary increments, hefty allowances and travels abroad to attend workshops of which they never even apply what they learn when they get back here in Zambia all they do is take photos and post on facebook.
      This is where the money meant for better roads, drainage and dustbins has been going no surpises at all that we remain backward. Yet we have an opposition that has failed to address this. So sad!

    • The area MP is asleep! It will not be surprising if the campaign promises among others improvements to roads being one of them.

  3. He has the right to complain, but that said, Chiefdoms should be abolished as these are the pioneers of tribalism and child marriages.

    Dear Seb Dance, Gerard Batten, Syed Kamall, Claude Moraes, Lucy Anderson, Jean Lambert, Mary Honeyball and Charles Tannock,

    I am writing to you as a concerened tax paying UK citizen of Zambian decent. The UK tax payer pays a lot of aid money to Zambia , but I don’t think the tax payers will be too happy to discover that their tax money provided as aid to zambia is allowing the Zambian president to purchase luxury private jets while millions of his countrymen wallow in poverty. This has also been revealed in the Norwegian press, where it had caused outrage.

    Yours sincerely,

    Concerned tax payer

  5. These guys have no time for the rest of us as Zambians. They just want to enrich themselves. Just imagine salary arrears backdated to January for no reason at all. One it will be disaster on them including this Tayamafi thing. We are watchin you id.iots. Your days are numbered.
    You are evil and your doing are evil.
    Go and see what happens at Chunga damp site. You can cry to see women with their babies on their back digging for whatever they can sell and earn a living and you are busy buying expensive planes for yourselves.
    You will be judged harshly.
    You are the worst i.diots the country has seen.
    You are a disaster!!!!

  8. I thought there is your member of parliament who is supposed to followup such projects , you are fed up because that is not your duty or it is not your gift let your mp do his job freely .
    Do not undermine his work I do think he is disappointed that you can come in with anger when he is still there.

  9. The opposition in a way is confused including areas where pf never got good counts.
    How,why,when you same people are saying govt is borrowing too much but you want new districts,new roads,dams etc.
    NB no one should ask for any new projects we want to pay credits first or vote first project later.

  12. Chief tell them,”Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me” . So tell your subjects next time to vote for someone else. I know people in Zambian are stuck up, and don’t like change. But unfortunately the countries and people who move forward embrace change and change course not they way we vote in Zed. Some demented minds now think some tribes should not rule, which a flawed way of thinking and is only going to sink us deep under like Zim.

  13. Chiefs are the most selfish individuals. So the road he wants is the one that leads to his palace and farm.

  14. You call yourself Chief and you can’t do your own roads?
    I know one innovative chief who mobilized his people and did a very good road without using heavy machinery but picks, hoes and shovels! Remember Food for work program? Trouble in Zambia is this Dependency Syndrome! It’s a form of begging and there is no dignity in begging!
