Chief Chabula of Lupososhi district, Northern Province has thanked the Patriotic Front (PF) government for changing the face of the district through massive developmental projects taking place in the area.
The Chief says Lupososhi is slowly changing its outlook due to the many developments taking shape in the region.
“You can see that the government has ensured the construction of the Lubwe embankment which is the first ever in the area since independence,” the Chief said.
Chief Chabula said the upgrading of the 73 kilometer Luwingu – Nsombo road to all weather gravel has reduced the time people used to take to travel between Lupososhi and Luwingu districts.
He also praised the government for the construction of 4 mini hospitals, 4 secondary schools and the Bangweulu Regional hospital which is under construction.
ZANIS reports that Chief Chabula said this when he held a meeting with over 100 village head men at Chabula Primary school which was also attended by Lupososhi Member of Parliament Chungu Bwalya.
Meanwhile, the traditional leader has charged village headmen in his chiefdom to sensitize people living in fishing camps to ensure they register as voters in the ongoing exercise.
The Traditional Leader said now that the fish ban has been effected, people should be recalled from the fishing camps and be encouraged to register as voters before the exercise comes to an end.
“All headmen should deliver the message to their respective places as failure to do so will attract penalty.
“You must carry this message to your subjects so that more people can register as voters in the ongoing exercise” he said.
And Mr Bwalya said the massive developmental projects taking place in the area is a clear testimony of the government’s commitment to fulfill its manifesto and promises.
“The PF government under the leadership of President Edgar Lungu is a pro-poor government that requires another mandate.
Earlier, Lupososhi District Commissioner Mambwe Katontoka appealed to village heads to update their village registers by capturing vital information of their subjects.
Ms Katontoka observed that this will not only help in knowing the number of people in the village but help in times of calamities.
