Newly Built Police Houses in Luanshya

President Edgar Lungu has handed over 55 police houses in Luanshya district, on the Copperbelt Province.

Speaking during the event, the President said there is need to restore the respect and dignity for the Zambia Police personnel in the country including all other civil servants.

President Lungu noted that since 1973, there has not been any notable transformation towards improving the welfare of the police department.

He said government has since committed itself to construct 12,000 housing units for the police and will ensure that the move is fulfilled so that no one remains behind.

President Lungu added that the uniformed officers are not the only ones to benefit from the housing project but everybody that works under the Ministry of Home Affairs, including Immigration department, Drug Enforcement Commission and Prisons, among others.

And the Head of State has stated that government remains committed to fulfilling the promises that were made to the people from the time the Patriotic Front came into power.

President Lungu said more projects will be implemented in Luanshya district including construction and rehabilitation of Township roads.

The President has since urged Members of Parliament and all Ministers to continue pushing for developmental projects, to be implemented in their respective areas in order to fulfill the promises made to the people and also improve on service delivery.

The Head of State also called on all Zambians to hold government accountable and ensure that they deliver on what was promised.

And Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo says the new houses will motivate the police force to maintain high levels of morale as they carry out their duties.

Government in July 2018 embarked on the construction of 55 low and medium cost police housing units in Luanshya, for Luanshya Central Levy Chito Camp and Mpatamatu costing over 2 Million Kwacha.

  1. These handovers should be done by DCs MPs and mayors not the President.
    We are giving the SHlT hole opposition Under 5 free ammunition to attack us.

    • “HH CHASED AND TOLD CHI KALA CHAWISO WIKESAKO KUNO YOU SOLD OUR MINES BY LUANSHYA RESIDENTS”

      If the Under 5 Paradise boy never sold our mines we would be better off today.

    • No doubt what he did together with the FTJ administration and a few other core crooks to our mines is messless, selfish and unforgivable. Kopala will never forgive double h and his line of defendants. At least CK might blame his loss on the double h factor.
      Peace to kapalas. Teach seshekeans how not to do politics. Ubuloshi, bupompwe nobunkalwe. Shameless bloodsheders.
      Why would you wanna bloodshed to win an election? Who does that?

    • Lungu has got ‘akasaka Kandalama’. He owns all this stuff he is giving out! But the question is why Luanshya and why now. I Luanshya anywhere near Roan? Ba Lungu Chipuba! The guy will be arrested!

    • You wonder how much is being spent on each unit via their crooked Chink AVIC contractors, no wonder we are in debt…we are simply going backwards instead of encouraging empowerment the reason FTJ sold those council houses in the first place increase their salaries ….I mean who facility manages these homes.
      Knowing the wives of these officers those front landings smeared with unsightly red polish!!

    • Smart campaign strategy, if I may add. That’s what I call taking advantage of the advantages when you have the power of incumbency.

      May democracy win, may the best candidate win.

      Good luck to all the candidates.

      Let’s roll …

    • Nowadays government builds structures then waits for a bye election to present them to the electorate. ECZ what are the rules? Can we ban this type of electioneering

    • All mines which used to be ZCCM owned and now in the hands of foreigners.
      (HH) sold them and Roan voters will show him tomorrow.
      (HH) is a useless lDlOTIC failure in politics. 13 years since 2006 and he still has no MPs on standby in the Copperbelt?

    • He messed up people’s lives. He is a constant reminder of the chilling poverty printed all over kopala. No matter what a double h sympathizer would say, people in that province have real excruciating experiences of what the name double h means – a living nightmare, a mocking personality and an unrepentant shameless conman. I lived on the Kopala belt 4 years under double K, 4 years under FTJ, 4 months under LPM, 2 months under RB and 1month under MCS. I hope to go there and do maybe 2-3 months under ECL.
      We will hear the verdict when they cast that vote.

  2. Lungu is a privertisation theif who sold cold storage board of Zambia to foringners who stripped all the equipment and shipped it out of the country devastating whole communities in Lusaka on top of him being a fraud convict……

    Look at what he is good at….handing over houses while hundreds of thousands remain unemployed with the country slipping into deep debt…

  4. Okay,politics aside,PF Govnt have tried so hard to develop Zambia since 2011.If MMD did what PF has done in those 20 yrs which they ruled Zambia,our country could have reached higher levels in terms of development by now.Its a pity that we wasted 20 solid years under MMD.After PF’s tenure,Zambia will be a better place to live in.Several new houses,clinics,schools,hospitals,universities,roads,public office buildings,etc have been built across Zambia.THIS IS VERY NICE INDEED!!!PLEASE KEEP IT UP PF GOVNT AND WE WILL CONTINUE REWARDING YOU WITH VOTES!!!

    • He was actually the lawyer. But anyway with the current form of investigation wings, k wonder how HH could have survived if indeed he is to blame. I think like ECL says, just take the evidence to law enforcement

Regardless of many accusations of stealing by there critics,pf has sonta apowabomba everywhere while mmd have non even in its 20years tenure.lwanshya voters wud prefer pf to upnd coz of hh”s conection with the sale of mines which brought untold misery to kopala.a thief who share with others is beter than a thief who doesnt share with others.

  8. About time too ! It would be nice to see more professionalism and less corruption among our officers with this elevation in status. They shouldn’t feel indebted to the government by even more harassment of opposition.

  10. some of you are really dumb. no wonder you’ve such id eots at the top
    it’s not pf or lungu’s money that was used to construct those houses or any other projects in Zambia. it’s tax payer’s money. it’s Zambia’s money. Zambia doesn’t equal pf. wake up!
    you’re too shallow that’s why these guys keep on taking advantage of you
    democracy my a ss. real democracies wouldn’t allow any of what lungu is doing during a by election. that’s aimed at influencing the votes, plain and simple

  11. it’s not pf money, it’s tax payer’s money, it’s not lungu’s money, it’s Zambians’ money that’s used for all the projects in the country
    you need to wake up and thing for a change
    Zambia doesn’t equal pf
    why are you so lazy to think?
    what lungu and pf are doing is clear violation, all these events are aimed at influencing the voters,
    your inability to think is what’s allowing these fools to take advantage of you
