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.

    • This is a very wise chief! I like this man and wish not chiefs all leaders were as wise as him. Alcohol has ruined so many peoples lives it should be banned altogether.

  1. This must indeed be introduced in the whole parts of Zambia, because alcohol is terribly abused. Most of the youth that are suppose to be productive tend to startt drinking early hours of the morning, its really sad.

    Excess abusive of alcohol is not good for growth. And if you compare between Indians and Zambians in terms of wealth, its simply because Zambians drink too much, you dont find bars full of Indians at all. At the end of the day you point fingers at the Government and foreigners, forgetting the core problem being alcohol. As long as the Zambian mentality of abusing alcohol doest not change, Zambia is not going anywhere even another President had to come in power.

    Please, my fellow Zambians, think of reducing on the consumption of alcohol, it is a very dangerous drug when…

  2. l mean, if it is advantageous in regards with cutting back on alcohol, why wouldnt someone takeup his/her own initiative? Why should it be a problem for people to abide by the law if a alcohol control policy had to be introduced? Once you cut back on alcohol you benefit some of the following:

    1) Deeper sleep
    2) Brighter mood
    3) More energy
    4) Better concentration
    5) Better skin
    6) A happier stomach
    7) More time and money
    8) Better long-term health

    Simply worth it…

  3. The Chief should encourage development. My grandfather lives in his area. He is one of the most enterprising person in the area.

    Yet I send him his favourite bottle of Brandy every month.

    Frankly speaking this Chief has nothing to show to people as an example.

    Dethrone him the soonest.
