No one should build houses within 200 metre radius of the President’s lodge in Kitwe-Chomba

Share

Local Government Permanent Secretary Edward Chomba has threatened to revoke offer letters for people who have built houses closer to the Presidential Lodge in Kitwe.

Bishop Chomba says building houses within 2-hundred and 50-meters of the President’s lodge may compromise the security of the Head of State.

The Local Government Permanent Secretary has also directed the council not to allocate any plots within the range of 2-hundred and 50 meters in the presidential Lodge.

He said this today when he toured the presidential Lodge accompanied by Kitwe District Commissioner Chileshe Bweupe, Kitwe Mayor Christopher

Kang’ombe and other Senior Officials from Kitwe City Council.

Meanwhile, Bishop Chomba said there is a need to drill a borehole so that houses within the presidential Lodge can have clean running water.

The PS was informed that water supplied by Nkana Water and Sanitation Company is not Consistent.

He said Government does not want workers living within the presidential Lodge to have problems accessing water for consumption.

  1. There’s a provincial minister on the Copperbelt, provincial permanent secretary, then Kitwe City Council, Kitwe district commissioner, Kitwe town clerk and lastly Copperbelt planning authority. No shortage of institutions and officials to ensure that the law is applied but it still got violated anyway and some people still built too close to the presidential lodge. And it has taken someone from Lusaka to observe a mistake? Come on people, we can’t be a respectable country like this.

  2. They beating up ZP officers at their HQ, now PF cadres go build houses in their President ‘s garden.
    Wow, when you supply thugs with weapons, they turn against you.

  3. These MICRO managers, awe shuwa. I am sick and tired of hearing ‘directed,’ ‘warned,’ ‘instructed.’ Everyday all they do is direct, warn, instruct- and on matters that are so simple and straight forward. The other day, the Inspector General of the police was begging his junior officers to arrest cadres. Really? The commandant requests instead of ordering. There is so much micromanaging in Zambia. The President sees a line not painted on the road, he instructs the minister to have it done. Ala!

  4. Whn I sometimes argue that independence for Zambia was granted too early, this is one of reasons. This is a PF stronghold we hv been reminded many times. And yet this is wht’s happening on the ground. Political power for its own sake, for brandishing fists in the air and not to govern. And then u want the African to be respected in civilised society? Forget it.

  5. Wasting money building lodges for selfish Lungu.

    KK, Chiluba, Levy, Rupiah, Sata and Scott all visited Kitwe several times during their terms in office. Where did they stay?

    Who does Lungu think he is? What security risk does a citizen living next door to him pose?

    He should be ashamed of this type of elitist behaviour.

  6. This is very important advice. The problem with opposition and diasporans is that they think office of president can be compared to leader of a small tribal party. We cannot take chances putting the president’s life at risk. His life is more at risk than any of yours.

  9. @KZ …what beef do u have with anyone who opposes the govt or diasporians….this is the element that let’s us down as Zambians. People abroad see how other countries are run and just want to offer solutions…if u keep using localised backward thinking you can never develop.

  11. Which is why many people use fake IP addresses. To be clear, “fake IP address” is a bit of a misnomer that implies creating a new one out of thin air. That’s not possible. The best you can do is hide your IP address behind someone else’s already-existing IP address. This is called IP masking.

    This means you can’t truly be anonymous on the internet—your actions can be traced back to you. But masking your IP address is good enough for functional anonymity.

  13. VPN stands for virtual private network, but is much simpler than it sounds. Basically, you can connect your computer or device to someone else’s network, then browse the web through their network. Whatever activity you’re doing looks like it’s coming from them, not from you.

    When you connect to a VPN, you’re masking your IP address with one of the IP addresses on that network. To trace the traffic back to you, the VPN would have to give you up (or your IP address would have to be revealed via DNS leak).

    This F.OOL in the UK thinks he his clever….. the problem with having little knowledge

  15. Brother Bishop, I’m sorry to say this to you. Can come up with something constructive this message is useless. And it’s not making any sense the PF is going away next year anyway.
    This administration is useless. I’m sorry.
    PF must Go.

  16. What security of the President, just exaggeration, the guy issuing the statement is not even a security guy

  17. Nemwine – You just have other issues with your phone plus this website is very porous and not well maintained, its been very buggy the last weeks…dont start to be afraid of your own shadow. Dont be foooooled by that UK based moron with too much time on his hands….next he will say Bowman was using an VPN as well which showed UK flag. laughable clown indeed.

  18. “….. Local Government Permanent Secretary Edward Chomba has threatened to revoke offer letters for people who have built houses closer to the Presidential Lodge in Kitwe…”

    This is the intrinsic problems with PF
    ………….exhibiting baboon mentality.
    Just going around in circles issuing directives pretending to to working.

    In countries and societies that function correctly , people who issued those letters should be sacked and charged if this is against land laws of Zambia, not harassing the people who recived letters if offer

  20. Please explain again now with colourful crayons to our resident adolescent impostor who assumes VPN can be stuck in one location like those satellite dishes at Mwebweshi built in 1974

  21. Tarino do not be a coward. Be a man and face me or rather address me head on. What are you scared of? If my IT team are able to ensure that my original IP is not publicly viewed, why should I worry myself with how they do it? I pay them to worry about my security and ensure I have secure access to any forums. You seem obsessed about me just like that big headed man called cat power. There are a lot of weird people in diaspora. Please visit Zambia soon to get your heads straight again. I hear there is a lot of stress for black people there especially Africans. Take care

  22. Really laughable now the silly UK based Impostor has an IT team and he doesn’t know how they have managed to make him appear in the UK whilst he is Zambia for the last 5 years so he can log on LT….this dingbat must be watching a lot of counter intelligence movies.

  24. Total wastage of resources; there’s no need for a Presidential guest house in Kitwe when there’s one on Kabelenga road in Ndola. PF is just commissioning any silly project through which money can be corruptly channeled to their pockets
