Rural News Chief Nkole Mfumu appeals to President Lungu to ensure violence-free elections

Chief Nkole Nfumu of the Bemba speaking people in Kasama district has asked President Edgar Lungu to ensure that the forthcoming Lukashya by-election is free of violence.

And Chief Nkole Nfumu has encouraged the Head of State to continue preaching peace and unity so that the country can continue to record meaningful development.

The traditional leader expressed happiness that President Edgar Lungu visited his chiefdom stating that he is the first president to visit the area.

He told the President that the area was lagging behind in development but expressed optimism that the President’s visit is set to change things in the area.

Chief Nkole Nfumu thanked the PF government for connecting power to his palace and further asked for the electrification of houses in the area.

He also commended the Head of State for his government move to construct a mini-hospital in the area saying that it will bring health services closer to the people.

The traditional leader also asked government to help construct a Secondary School in the area.

Chief Nkole Nfumu has however disclosed to President Lungu that his chiefdom has resolved to continue supporting him because he has shown a great sense of leadership.

In response, President Lungu also urged the chief to continue promoting peace and unity.

He assured the traditional leader that the police command is on high alert to ensure peace is upheld during campaigns up-to the polls.

The Head of State later held a rally at Nkole Nfumu grounds to drum up support for PF candidate George Chisanga ahead of the Lukashya Constituency Parliamentary by election slated for 17th September 2020.

During the rally President Lungu pointed out that Lukashaya Constituency is lagging behind in a number of areas adding that deserved to have a fair share of development.

He however explains that starts with having a good leader who will represent the people and advance development in the area.

President Lungu has since appealed to the people of Lukashya to vote for a PF candidate as he will work with government to develop the area.

And the aspiring candidate, George Chisanga, pledged to meet the electorates’ expectations of delivering on developmental goals once voted into office.

  2. Chief we have heard your plea and request. Do not worry, we have a very able police force which has the resources and equipment to ensure the country’s safety. The safety of our people comes before any one single party or person. The police are ready for the violent elements. We know which party they hail from and I am very confident that our men and women in uniform will ensure compliance with the law without fear or favour!

  5. The whole country knows who is the cause of the violence that’s why the chief was appealing to the right person. so shameful it is for a human being to be well known for evil deeds….how come no one would appeal to kalaba or kwambwili or Hakainde to stop violence.

  6. Is it too risky politically to restore local taxation to fund purely local public services as was the case under the colonial government? Kaunda abolished local taxation because he wanted everyone to be begging from central government which he controlled. If there was local taxation Chief Nkolenfumu would not be complaining as he is now.

  7. @nemwine yo suggestion would actually bring development. Thats evn decentralisation has been wanted so much. Bt the calibre of human beings we hv nw woudnt want that..coz they feel it reduces their importance. They want to control the govt coffers and show of like its theirs .kasaka kandalama. Surely there’s a reason zambia is poor and the reason is the way we manage our own state money..
