President Lungu determined to complete all developmental projects  

Headlines President Lungu determined to complete all developmental projects  

President Edgar Lungu says he wants to see all developmental projects currently underway countrywide completed.
 
The Head of State said Government’s desire is to see people start deriving maximum benefit from developmental projects hence the need to expedite the completion of the projects.
 
President Lungu said this in Ikelenge district Friday when he addressed traditional leaders.
 
He expressed concern that some projects Government is undertaking in the district have stalled adding that this has led to the termination of some contracts.
 
“Some contracts in this district have been terminated and for Mwinilunga – Jimbe Road, the project is under review so that the contract can be given to others because the Public-Private Partnership with Frecha Mining, the contractor has failed to work,” President Lungu said.
 
“I don’t feel happy when I see projects stalling, it is not Government’s intention. Our intention is to take development to all parts of the country. There are some uncompleted development we as PF inherited from the previous governments and the ones we ourselves initiated which we want completed,” he stated. 
 
The Head of State has since encouraged the traditional leaders to continue giving government guidance on many development issues.
 
And Chieftainess Ikelenge said for the district to have meaningful development, there is need for a good road network.
 
“My district borders two neighbouring countries Angola and Congo DR and once the road is worked on it can bring Government the much needed revenue,” She said.
 
Chieftainess Ikelenge also bemoaned lack of clean and safe drinking water and electricity saying the area has abundant water bodies which Government can take advantage of for hydro power generation.
 
Chief Nyakaseya thanked President Lungu for many developmental projects being implemented in the area and appealed for speedy completion.
 
And Chief Mwinyilamba appealed to President Lungu to connect his chiefdom to electricity saying lack of it has hampered development in his area.
 
“Lack of electricity in my chiefdom has negatively affected the operation of schools and a rural health center in my chiefdom. Pupils are not even learning information communication technology due to this challenge,” He noted.
 
President Edgar Lungu is in North Western Province on a three-day working visit.

  1. I sometimes wonder at Mr. Lungu and other leaders like him(Mnangagwa, Nkurunzinza, jacob zuma, mtharika etc). Do these people have consciences?
    You are busy stealing from the poor on one hand and then you can come out and say you want to develop a nation?
    You promote and propagate corruption, you amass wealth for yourself and a few of your friends at the expense of the poor, you preside over the most corrupt government in the nation’s history, and then you unashamedly say you want to see development?
    And to add insult to injury, you claim to be a christian! Is this not mocking God!

  2. What a sadist!!!
    I have seen several pictures where your Edgar is walking like an Altar Boy (ABC). Those acts of “humbleness”, makes him look styupid.
    Where are all PF women he used to dance with.

    • People still wondering why they have opted to hire a debt manager, economics is not their cup of tea, ati he resigned from upnd because they are economic managers and not politicians and you still wondering why the economy has gone berserk.

  4. This thief, which development projects? Edgar Lungu voting you’re out no amount of imaging building will save you.

    PF must go!

  5. The PF govt has runracked all the coffers and Public-Private Partnership can only mean one thing for the motorists toll fees …Lazy Lungu is there shamelessly telling lies in the rural areas but they have seen it before.

  6. Whilst you people in diaspora are being racially profiled and murdered, you are here busy insulting a fellow black president. A case of misplaced anger.

  7. Mr. Lungu arrest Sikutea for stealing from retirees. He stole from MAMCO and I am told kept declaring dividend when his Madison General Insurance was not solvent. Many like me retired from the army and put our savings with MAMCO. Sikutwa is a wheeler dealer sweet talker and has refused to pay us since December 2018

  8. I 100% agree with boss Kaizar Zulu….2021 will be for ECL 100%!!!Am seeing PF grabbing some seats at parliament level in Western and N/Western provinces in 2021 because many voters in the two provinces now believe that ECL means well for mother Zambia.That said,i cannot see HH’s UPND winning any seat in Luapula,Northern,Muchinga,Eastern,CB&Lsk urban in 2021 as it has been the case since 1998!!!The few votes which PF may lose in CB&LSK urban,will be replaced by those gained in Western & N/Western!!Only regional party supporters who have had fake dreams since 1998 could reject the facts i have said above!!!

  9. Funds were misappropriated and looted. There is no more money, I doubt if loans are still available out there for Zambia to complete its projects.

    If the funds were available, the project could have been finished.

  10. Its very necessary to see for yourself Sir and not be appraised by a third party who may not tell the truth sometimes about the projects status for various reasons.
    We as contractors appreciate your on the spot inspections so you can appreciate the challenges that we face.
    We have not been paid by ZNS for a long time now for work done and certified.
    We appeal to you Sir to have MOF minister to release a mitigating covid bailout fund for contractors and suppilers to ZNS as well like he did release 140million kwacha for the zambian road contractors.
    Your devine intervention is sought Sir.
    God bless you.

  11. Ok Bandit President Lungu you only have a few months left so please hurry up…meanwhile you are busy stealing together with Makaka Kaizar Zulu

  12. Just over a year left to his last term of Presidency(no third term is allowed) and ECL wants to start developmental projects.
    Last kicks of a dying horse

  13. “I don’t feel happy when I see projects stalling, it is not Government’s intention. Our intention is to take development to all parts of the country. …..”

    You are allowed to dream lungu , performing is another story …..

  14. Bwana Lungu has been failing badly since 2015 in Zambia’s biggest development project of all time – the economy has been sliding downwards.

  15. Current PF, President Lungu, need to resign or impeached right now. How is he getting away with miss leading reports.

    SpaceX exhilarating text book human accomplishment step by step like a band playing with well tuned Instruments because agrees with your brain.

    I hope you did send a congratulations letter to Elon Musk, on behalf of GRZ.

    The report coming out of Mwinilunga District, North Western Province, from the President, is disturbing anddisparaging about someone, make disparaging comments about them, you saying things which show that you do not have a good opinion of them.

    PF you have run of time-outs.

  16. Good to see that KZ has recovered, welcome back boss. How is Dora doing, speedy recovery to her too.

  17. Busy stealing for the last 4 years and now it has suddenly dawned on him that elections are very near so this is when he is in a hurry to complete projects.

  18. Really laughable…its 2020 and this man is determined to complete all developmental projects in 10 months when his govt is broke and reduced to stealing from covid-19 donations. Maybe the Chinese Slave masters of the Zambian people will fund all these projects.

  19. The pictures show that the rule on social distancing has been broken by the people that made it .The people who are supposed to make sure that it is implemented and followed . This PF government says one thing and mean another when people are looking away .There is a law for the PF and another for ordinary .The PF is undermining public safety through their carelessness .These are the same close contacts to Dora and Chitalu Chilufya who are supposed to be self isolating .

  20. This thief Lungu is making Zambians feel like foreigners in their own country.

    We have suspected for a while that he has mental illness.

    There is no one in their right mind that can fu#ck up our country the way this corrupt drunkard has.

  21. After rigging 2016 elections, even the white dove refused to fly from lungus hands………that was a sign and lungu should have given up but had his mind on stealing only…..

  22. IT SEEMS RB IS A VERY GOOD TEACHER, WHAT HE DID IN HIS LAST DAYS HAVE RUBBED OFF TO HIS TRAINEE, EVEN HIM SPENT HUGELY ON THE SO CALLED PROJECTS WHEN HE WAS JUST ABOUT TO BE BOOTED OUT, THEN THE MONKEY ANOINTED HIM AND HE WEPT ON HIS WAY OUT, CURRENTLY SEER 1 HAS ANOINTED THE TRAINEE WHAT IS REMAINING IS THE WEEPING. THESE THINGS HAVE WHAT ARE CALLED TRAITS WHICH ONLY THE WISE CAN SEE.

  23. How many years you been in power you still talking of completing projects are you serious or sick Sir but you have borrowed to death were did you take the money if projects are not yet completed we are not stupid Sir 2021 is to go.

  24. He has visited this province a ‘100 times’ and spoken about ‘completing developmental projects’. Yet, here are the chiefs still lamenting to him about unfinished roads and the lack of electricity in schools and health centres (in this time and age) He will go away and come back another time with the same circle narratives.

  25. PRESIDENT WITHOUT CONCIENCE. PAY COUNCIL WORKERS THEIR AREARS. WHY ARE YOU TREATING THEM LIKE THAT? YOURE BUSY SHIELDING CORRUPT MINISTERS, WHO ARE AMASSING TAX PAYERS MONEY. WHAT KIND OF A LEADER ARE YOU. IMWE BA ZAMBIA NGATI SIMUZACHINJA NUMBER PA NEXT YEAR….
