    • So even coming back from a trip to Katete means Inonge Wina and others must gather at KK international and do what exactly?
      Government resources and we the tax payer being taken for granted.

      And it appears clocking traveling and other allowances is the ONLY measure of the success of a trip. Very sad.

  2. Sir you need to rethink that development because it’s not stimulating the economic growth or improving quality of life. Going to electrify your village adds no economic value or building a school far from human population. The economy is failing and quality of life is bad, our mortality rate should have dropped drastically hearing how many clinics you guys claim to have built. You need to be strategic instead of build here there no wonder some of it is stalled

  6. One thing we should know is that government is you and that it takes you to think big and come up with developmental projects which will supplement government efforts. Replacing President Edgar Lungu with another person will not be the best solution, the solution is you , what have you done which will tell a story of your legacy. There is need for us to work hard so that we contribute towards government efforts. We need to change our mind set. Our generation is to much of dependance and folding arms, in the early 80s people use to work hard they use to remember there villages and farm, no much time to watch a movie, and government then UNIP was tough and that even keeping a dog at home we use to pay revenue for it but now it is free, trade freely and you can purchase a property and no…

  7. He is busy touring the poverty that he has created. You only need to see the picture background that is so typical of his so called development. One would think that this man is managing an African village and not a country that was once quite prosperous!! He is busy commissioning useless projects that should be delegated to junior personnel when he is supposed to be responding to issues that are seriously affecting the nation. He appears to have put his priorities in the wrong place!!

  8. What success has this visit brought to the ordinary citizens of Eastern Province ? They’ll still be trying to survive despite load shedding and rising levels of poverty.

    As mentioned in another comment, what need is there for all those government officials and service chiefs to be at the airport to await the president’s return ? Presumably they clock up mileage allowances for themselves on these occasions. What a total waste of people’s money.

  9. PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu is right- he will only know the Truth by interacting directly with Chiefs and people at the grassroots to avoid being fed with lies.

    While there is absolutely nothing wrong for him to rely on his ministers and reports from technocrats, there is equally nothing wrong for him to go on the ground and listen firsthand to cries of chiefs and their subjects. In that way no one will cheat or mislead him.In fact, by doing so, it helps compare the content with the reports he gets from the public officials and the reality on the Ground..
