President Edgar Lungu will this week undertake a series of tours to Western, Central and Luapula Provinces, respectively, where he is scheduled to inspect developmental projects.

The President is tomorrow scheduled to travel to Kaoma, in Western Province where he will grace the Zambia Correctional Service Pass out Parade for 942 Warders and Wardresses at Nyango Corrections Staff Training School.

On Friday, 12th July, 2019, President Lungu is expected in Mkushi, Central Province where he will launch The Improved Rural Connectivity Project which is earmarked to improve the feeder road network in Central, Eastern, Luapula, Muchinga, Northern and Southern Provinces to be funded by the World Bank and the Zambian Government.

And on Saturday, the Head of State is expected in Luapula Province where he will spend two working days.

While in the Province, the President will tour Mansa Sugar Farm and later on commission the Mansa Sugar Plant.

President Lungu will also visit a Cassava Project in Mansa and is scheduled to commission a mini-hospital in Bahati in Mansa District.

The President returns to Lusaka as soon as he winds up his visit to the respective areas.

Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations, Isaac Chipampe, has noted in a statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka this afternoon, that President Lungu places high premium on the development of rural areas to bridge the gap with urban areas that have already seen unprecedented infrastructure development.

Mr. Chipampe says within a short space of time, the President has commissioned houses for Police in Lufwanyama and Kamfinsa in the Copperbelt Province including Chibombo in Central Province.

He added that last Sunday, the President commissioned Chati South Boarding School in Kalulushi in his continued effort to empower young people, especially the girl-child.

  1. anyone can commission some houses/building.
    is he the commissioner in charge?
    he has no plans or strategy of tackling real pressing issues that the general population cares for. there are a lot of pending issues that the country is holding it’s breath waiting for some sort of direction or leadership and there he is visiting provinces, meanwhile there are provincial reps on the payroll …
    and you chipampe you seem to be lost, you’re praising him for how many event’s he has commissioned. that’s not a president’s job. this guy, lung u is very lazy. he waits for these little things to show up and he spends tax payer’s money to go there just to be seen like is doing something, opening a school, hotel, really mr president, that’s what you think your job is

    • Its like the austerity measures put in place were to increase available resources in the presidential purse for touring, yes, touring as in tourist for lower level officials can do all these commissioning exercises especially the officials in respective responsible institutions! It is reported by respected media that some president has been described as inept, insecure and, incompetent and it makes me muse how many fit this description in diplomatic circles!

    • If you can read body language, even a little bit, you can clearly see that the guy in the picture above, whose name is lazy Lungu, doesn’t seem to have a clue as to what he’s supposed to be doing as a president. The body language in the picture above seems to expose him as an impostor, who thinks his job is to fly around the country, wasting taxpayer’s money, to commission even small unimportant projects. As long as we have this guy in office, Zambia will continue to wallow in mediocrity and corruption. Vote this corrupt clueless guy out in 2021.

    • What is the use of having ministers in these provinces? Are they not the ones that are supposed to perform such simple taks?? If the President has to do all these simple tasks, well let him do away with ministers that he has appointed to represent him

      Mind you it is very costly to fly around

    • Do not forget the real reason for these visits to Central Province: there is an election coming in Katuba which at the last check was in Central Province! After the Katuba election, the visits will be limited to Copperbelt, Luapula, Muchinga, and Northern, where Kambwili and Kalaba are giving him nightmares. The game is so tough PF cannot manipulate the economy. Hence, the desperate act of mutilating the constitution.

  4. These visits are Lungu campaign tours disguised as development inspection and “a series of visits”.

    • Lazy Lungu is a simple minded chap…I am sure he will even read speeches at every tarmac he lands, he is slowly becoming isolated from reality in general even more so now Amos is not around, I thought I would see him engage with the nation via press conferences but all no the dull Freedom Sikazwes have his ear now.

PF cadres surely is this normal a Head of State who can stay in his office for 7 days always looking for any excuse to fly out…he is wasting more money visiting places almost every weekend of the month. Who is paying all that overtime on weekends.He dos even understand his cost-saving measures as its just a speech to him!!

  12. A correctional service pass out parade, a visit to a cassava project (people have been growing cassava for decades, by the way), a sugar plant. Really? He must be running away from something at State House. This can’t be normal. Or is it the per diem?
