  1. Nice. But probably micro-managing as per Kampyongo’s newly found vocabulary. Mayor and minister of arts and tourism or some such level would have been appropriate.

    Hotels for abusing Mulungushi, Nkhruma, Paglory and Immaculata young females? What bliss in that location full of lead contamination. Kabwe should grow towards Kapiri where lead contamination maybe less.

    Private sector is working….Viva FTJ foundations

    • OK get ready to shoot me down.

      Who is responsible for grading hotels in Zambia?

      I have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the globe, and the quality standards are undeniable. It’s like wow, and wow again.

      I have also stayed in “5 star” hotels in Zambia. I will not comment.

    • Who wrote this article …there is no mention of the cost of construction, how many jobs it will create, who the owner is and what their background is..what makes it 5 star…what’s even shocking is a hotell like this if its 5 star is competition to the hotels that are included in that overpriced $1.2 billion Ndola Lusaka motorway. Who briefs this head of state …its like he can come to commission anything using the office!!

    • Clueless corrupt LAZY Lungu going to open a private hotel. This is shameful. This is what happens when someone doesn’t know what they’re doing. A hard working president wouldn’t be wasting time officiating at the opening of a private hotel. Just wasting taxpayer’s money. If it was my hotel, I would tell him to stay away. Wasted years indeed.

  2. Mulungushi Textile that can create proper skilled jobs is rotting there in Kabwe…the whole president without any once of shame has rushed to commission a hotel with unknown private owner…I mean who is Prya Die Here (PDH) Foundation who we can not even find on link? This man refused to go to a AU summit for this African speed train from Cape to Cairo that can benefit the country with skilled jobs to do and drink whiskey in a hotel.

    • Your president has no priorities …this is a job for Charles Banda its a private hotel not a hotel build by the Pension fund.

  4. “The Minister has however appealed to the President to consider working on the road network, in order to make the province more accessible.”

    He is also directly in charge of roads now, is he? Anyway, he is everywhere, even for a small occasion as this. Isn’t he supposed to be reviewiing policies, reports from ministers and assessing where the country is, with a view to making a STATE OF THE NATION speech or something of the sort? Press conference perhaps, to answer questions? Or is this wishful thinking on my part?

  7. Me thinks ECL is personally benefiting from this… owns some shares – mark my words. An income stream. More ways of justifying his newly acquired wealth.

    • Oh come on southerner…why apportion some blame to HH? HH has never been president. Poverty and all..blame Lungu and his thieving ministers. Indeed how can the entire busy president find time to open a small private hotel at tax payers expense? Unless he has financial interest in the enterprise…maybe running the casino? The project commissioner has run out of projects to commission. Really what sort of president is this?

  9. Great job President Lungu! Obviously the losers, UPND and their bitter god HH aren’t happy to see such a facility in Central Province. Going by their comments am sure people are able to see that HH and UPND infact doesnt want the welfare of Zambians uplifted and yet pretending to have economic solutions in everything.
    As GBM says, HH and UPND dont have an agenda for Zambia but for their businesses and tribesmen only.

  10. The whole of a president spending a whole lot of tax payers money to go commission a private hotel makes me think he wants to be seen everywhere as relevant and to authenticate the insecurity his presidency is suffering in some quarters. As most indigenous Zambians have no money to spend in such hotels the president has endorsed government institutions expenditures as a go to rendezvous for their never ending conferences and meetings!

    On a lighter note Prya Die Here (PDH) sounds more like “Pray You Die Here” if read really fast!

    • My husband is a disporan, & he heartly love the motherland. Yet he fail to get the on going tribal crutching among each others. I personally, i’m a motherland born & immensely proud to be one. My first names sound Mu’Tonga, yet i’m partly Mu’Tonga & again extremely proud to be partial Barotse daughter….

      Are you studying enough our history/our herirage or we are simply moving with the move of many, regardless the mistakes that are so visible?

      If you truly care & love your family, one must be able to mention & make suggestions, when some goes wrong. Otherwise, you would be misguiding your beloved ones, and later on the problem will remine unsolved. Hence, worsening everthing for both.

      Just because one criticizes ones act(s), it does not mean “lets prounce war”…. &…
