Newly installed Chief Fwambo of the Mambwe speaking people in Mbala district of Northern Province has warned his subjects to stop drinking beers as early as 07:00hrs.
ZANIS reports that Chief Robbie Julius Fwambo says he will take punitive measures on any of his subjects found drinking beer during productive hours.
He said doing this will ensure that various development activities in his chiefdom are achieved since most of his subjects will be sober and productive.
The Traditional leader said in a letter availed to ZANIS today that the overall development in his chiefdom is being compromised by beer drinking as early as 07:00 hours, a situation he said cannot remain unchecked.
In another development, chief has implored his subjects to consider diversifying instead of growing maize alone as the crop is not profitable.
He has advised his subjects to diversify their farming activities to ventures such as growing cassava which he said has more profit.
