  1. Great development especially with covid on the rise. This is what pf stands for. And a great gesture to name it after a great man who has done a lot for the nation.

    Meanwhile hh is busy insulting government without even a toilet to show for in his stronghold. If you steal money from poor people, atleast be generous like Robin hood

  2. For a moment, I thought it was being funded my Enoch Kavindele Himself. What has he achieved in life to be honoured? Being appointed Vice President is not an achievement . We need to start honouring people who have really served the people. Teachers, Doctors, Missionaries, and others as such. An example is Kenneth Kaunda International Airport. They have now designated the drop off point by the entrance as only for Ministers and Government vehicles but the tax payer should be dropped off where they can be soaked if it is raining. Such can never happen in the developed countries.

  3. This is just politiking of the highest deception. PF GRZ has cancelled or suspended embarking on new projects apart from those which were at 80% completion country wide due to financial challenges. Where is the money gong to come from. I pity Engineer Engineer Kasoka DC for Kabompo for propagating the impossible completion by end of May 2021? Lets wait and see otherwise its the same campaign gimmickwhich politicians embark on towards election. AS for Kabompo is not surprising coz it delivered some ward to PF during recent by elections.

  4. Lusaka should stop imposing names. It’s the local council that should be picking names. Kavindele has done more for chingola and Lusaka than kabompo.

  5. So, Davies Mwila lied that all thieving PF ministers have paid back the money when Finance Minister Bwalya Ng’andu has denied ever receiving that money. PF is cheap with lies – break fast lies, lunch time lies, dinner time lies – sleeping and dreaming lies. Lies and stealing is PF government.
