  7. This is the welcome announcement. Good roads are key to the growth and development of the region. Involvement of ZNS in road building projects in Chilubi will definitely help the people and economy in the region. President Lungu is known for his promises!!! Several developments have happened after Lungu became our leader.

  8. In 2016 Mr. Lungu commissioned the Mongu-Kalabo road, and still today it’s maintained in very good condition. Major construction has happened in my Lusaka that has turned the city beautifully…plus it saved a lot of time and energy in travelling.

  9. Brace yourself Chilubi district people soon your district will get a makeover. Trust me this is going to happen for sure. Better connectivity, broad roads, you are going to love your district even more!!!

  10. The government has already started work on 126 km long Luwingu – Nsombo – Chaba Road. This road will not only connect Chibuli mainland with rest of the country, but also open doors for the businesses in the region, especially fish trading. Now the same development will take place across the region.
