President Lungu expected in Southern Province for a two day working visit

General News President Lungu expected in Southern Province for a two day working...

President Edgar Lungu is tomorrow expected in Southern Province for a two day working visit.

President Lungu is expected to arrive in Livingstone in the morning and will immediately proceed for a ground breaking ceremony for the construction of a four star Mosi-0-Tunya Livingstone resort hotel and conference facility.

Southern Province Minister Edify Hamukale has confirmed the Presidential visit in Choma today.

Dr. Hamukale explained that the project is an outcome of the 2019 Southern Province tourism and investment exposition.

And President Lungu will on Saturday travel to Monze to commission new housing units for the Zambia Correctional Service.

The President will later in the afternoon be in Mazabuka to commission another set of housing units for Zambia Police Service.

And the Patriotic Front -PF-Southern Province Chairman Lawrence Evans says the party in the province is excited that President, Edgar Lungu is once again expected to undertake a working visit to the province.

Mr. Evans says the President’s visit to Southern Province is a continuation of his developmental agenda for the province.

He has urged everyone to accord the President a warm welcome as he visits Southern Province on his unprecedented development drive, which has seen him either commissioning a secondary school, district hospital among others which has never been seen in the country’s history.

Mr. Evans has told ZNBC News that the PF is also happy to note that the President is also scheduled to meet with traditional leaders in the three districts.

He said this is because traditional leaders are partners in development and President Lungu has continued to accord the traditional leaders the respect befitting their status and has been appealing to them to continue giving counsel to politicians.

Mr. Evans said the engagement is timely especially coming a few days after the Southern Province council of Chiefs made a passionate appeal to Members of Parliament to fully support the Constitution amendment bill number 10 of 2019.

President Lungu was in Southern province in May during which he opened the Victoria Falls to the public, which was closed due to the outbreak of the Coviod-19.

This is according to a statement issued to ZNBC News by PF Southern Province Information and Publicity Secretary, Trymore Mwenda.

  4. Without malice, this is equitable distribution of gorvenment resources.Despite receiving near zero% of votes in this region , the Government has still taken development to this region.
    That is as it should be and we thank government for this magnanimity.

    • 2016 presidential result in mwansabombwe constituency (kawambwa, luapula province)

      PF 10,455

      UPND 1,931

      Why do you always complain about the number of votes , yet the trend was the same even rural areas where pf won, the only places where votes were neck and neck was in urban towns like Lusaka . Do you know that even those who did not vote for pf pay taxes , hence that entitlement to such social services. Why schools did some of you mangwams go to be so illiterate in your thinking.

  5. We know he has certain percentages of shares in that hotel.

    This thief of a president must pack and go. We are tired of him.

    PF must go!

  10. World Bank today has declared Tanzania a middle income country status…Lazy Lungu and John Magufin entered office about the same time but look at the differences…Lazy Edgar is still flying around campaigning 5 years on.

  11. Tarino Zambia was declared a middle income country ages ago. This is a sign that you are clearly out of touch with reality. Muna yenda kuvyalo without papers and now cannot travel or leave because you have not legalised your stay. So most of you think zambia is still the way you left it. Fyi we are doing much better than most of you there wiping old people. Kz

  13. Nothing really comes out of these visits. Lungu makes lots of visits to Northern province for example. Yet Nkandu Luo was shocked to find a milk processing project in Mbala had been abandoned by the contractor who had already been paid. Poor Luo was livid predictably. But government machinery is always there: the provincial minister, the provincial permanent secretary, district commissioner for Mbala and goodness knows who else.
