President Edgar Lungu has promised the people of Milenge of robust economic development in the district.

President Lungu has assured the people of Milenge that once Chanda Masheke is put into office as the Milenge Council Chairperson, the district will witness robust economic development.

ZANIS reports that the Head of State said this during a public meeting, held to drum up support for the Patriotic Front candidate Chanda Masheke, who is contesting in the Milenge Council Chairperson by elections, slated for Thursday, December 5th, 2019.

The Milenge Council Chairperson seat fell vacant following the death of Fidelis Chansa on October 14th, 2019 in Mansa District.

President Lungu is accompanied by Campaign Manager, Chitalu Chilufya who is also Minister of Health and Mansa Central Member of Parliament, Luapula Province Minister and Kawambwa Central Law Maker Nickson Chilangwa, as well as Nominated Member of Parliament Raphael Nakachinda.

Others are Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila, Milenge Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) Member of Parliament Mwansa Mbulakulima, and his among other party and government officials.

President Lungu noted that his administration has initiated several infrastructure projects in Milenge District, ranging from electricity, schools, and hospitals among other projects, adding that the programmes represent the kind of development government is determined to have, in order to enhance investment.

President Lungu whose motorcade travelled by road from Mansa to Meleki village, a stretch of 75 kilometers along the Potholes perforated Mansa-Chembe road, promised to ensure that the road which connects Milenge to the neighbouring districts, is worked on as soon as possible.

He also encouraged the people of Milenge to vote for the PF candidate Chanda Masheke for continued development, especially in the Livestock and Fisheries sector and the Agricultural sector, taking note of the large presence of fishermen and farmers in the region.

President Lungu also expressed optimism that the infrastructure and economic development that his administration has initiated not only in Milenge, but the entire county, is proof enough that the party’s manifesto means well for the country’s development.

“People are seeing what we are doing, my administration shall never relent, we will ensure that all parts of the country receive a fair share of the national cake,” he said.

And President Lungu has directed the PF candidate to humble himself and represent the people of Milenge well.

Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya and his General Education counterpart David Mabumba outlined several reforms that have taken place in the education and health sectors in Milenge.

Two political party candidates participating in the Council Chairperson by election from the PF and UPND are sizing each other, promising the electorates what they will do once voted into office and the Electoral Commission of Zambia ECZ, has warned against Electoral violence.

President Lungu is in Milenge for a two day working visit where he is drumming up support for PF candidate Chanda Masheke in the fourth coming Milenge town Council Chairperson.

Today, the President is holding series of rallies across Milenge district and will wrap up his tour tomorrow with more rallies before heading back to Lusaka.

Milenge is a settlement in Luapula Province and the major occupation for the people is fishing and farming.


  1. Let’s develop this thing Mr. President! You have done a great job that is why tribos Ha jealous of you! Zambia has changed tremendously for the better! Thank God he (the little boy) is UNELECTABLE and a PRIVATISATION THIEF and TAX evading thief. PANAMA little boy is also known as UNDER FIVE.

    • Lungu has been promising each time there are elections. Remember Mulungushi textiles? Was almost open during last elections! Remember how these guys got earth moving equipment to Luanshya and other constituencies during the elections and just dumped them after they lost the by-elections? Lungu and Kaizer play people for fools and they buy it?

  2. A whole lot of a president going to campaign for a small seat like this one. Very embarrassing remembering voters only when there is an election. Those people need jobs to sustain themselves than the so called development you cannot eat.Northerners need to stop being cheated with cheap Chinese infrastructure. It’s all because of you we have load shedding, higher inflation, unemployment, taxes,corruption and not forgetting low economic growth. The country should be rich by now but because of wrong choices when it comes to voting we are among the poorest of the world, charitable organizations flock to our nation in numbers

    • @2 China, NO,ITS NOT BCOZ OF NORTHERN THAT WE HAVE THOSE PROBLEMS.It is bcoz of divisive regional politics from both ruling and opposition.I can tell,the REAL BATTLE FOR THE COMING ELECTIONS IN 2021 WILL BE IN URBAN AREAS AS BOTH UPND AND PF ARE LIKELY TO KEEP THEIR RURAL STRONGHOLDS! The good part is that in urban areas people want SOMETHING NEW!!



  5. “President Lungu has assured the people of Milenge that once Chanda Masheke is put into office as the Milenge Council Chairperson, the district will witness robust economic development.”

    I thought that seat was previously held by PF itself? No? I was wrong sorry for my ignorance. No wonder African politicians dont want their citizens to be educated, but to be cheated forever with very cheap lies from the market.

  6. What we have seen is industrial scale stealing of tax payers money not development .That is why even a former kabova can afford to offer people free mealie meal and accommodate a police chief for free .

  7. ‘They will see robust economic development’? What has been going on since 2011, then? Nothing, or this is another set of lies that come with all elections? PULIZzzz .. the ‘entire’ head of state going to campaign for a council chair seat. How is a PF campaign trail a working visit, by the way? Ridiculous!

  8. This is what the PF government says everywhere there is a bye election. The same words were used in Kafue and Chilanga here. Is there any development we are seeing ? Nothing!!
    People of Zambian let’s just open our eye and vote the people who will bring development period. If they look fit don’t make a mistake.

  9. People of Milenge being assured of robust development indeed!! We know a liar when he starts giving childish promises to vulnerable, poor and hungry victims! He is doing what he knows to do when he wants to continue stealing the country’s borrowed money and the aid from countries that support human rights …. America and Ireland included!!
    We can see through you !!!

  10. You got to be from Milenge to be so foolish so as to be fooled by a*** fool! Just the sight of this ***** is annoying enough, I feel like puking already!
