Mazabuka District Commissioner Jane Chirwa has disclosed that President Edgar Lungu has given Mazabuka District over One thousand bags of Mealie meal for distribution to vulnerable communities.
Ms Chirwa said the One thousand 25 kg bags of breakfast Mealie meal we’re received in the District last week.
The D.C told ZANIS in an interview that President Lungu has since instructed her office to identify among others those whose fields were submerged in water and are likely not to harvest anything.
Ms. Chirwa added that President Lungu is also concerned with the welfare of the vulnerable families and should therefore be given the Mealie meal as well.
She said the District Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit has since started identifying beneficiaries to receive the mealie meal.
Ms Chirwa has since thanked the President for showing so much love to the people of Mazabuka whom she said have continued to receive various forms of relief from the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit (DMMU).
It’s a season of donations
Instead of improving the economy by making our lives cheap and affordable,someone is busy dishing out ubunga.
Well done Mr President….the vulnerable dont understand economics or good governance but understand hunger and charity….God bless you SIR
No wonder you defaulted on the eurobond interest. Using the money to fund your donations just to stay in power. Bogus President.
Donations of food is always good.
AND STUFF VACCINES WHILST PEOPLE ARE DYING
TYPICAL LACK OF PRIORITIES .. SELF PRESEVATION WHAT ELSE CAN IT BE
PLUS NATIONAL MILLING CAN START WHISTLING FOR PAYMENT
Meanwhile hh is still gloating over his donation of cheap ebu soap last year. Wakaso kelenka ulya
free and fair bull sH11T ..
WE NEED OBSERVERS NOW AND NOT AT ELECTION TIME
ARE PIPO THAT STUP12D THEY CANT SEE WHATS GOING ON HERE
I DONT THINK SO
I am sorry to say this but this is really SICKENING. Is there a loose screw in our President’s head? His own government creates the problem and then from somewhere but who knows where, he gets money to solve the same problem. This is the worst election buying gimmick I have ever seen. Is President Lungu a true patriot? He is like a Nazi doctor Mengele who inflicts suffering on the victims and then turns up with pain killers, smiling gives them to his henchmen who go around telling the sufferers how much Dr Mengele loves them. This is sickening to the hilt. Zambian people MUST know where exactly this money comes from. This is evil.
GREAT POST ABOVE YOU DESERVE POST OF THE DAY
TOLL MONEY,, NHI, ZESCO, ZRA, NAPSA ???? ACCOUNT 99 WILL BE DRY SOON
AND NOTHING ABOUT VACCINES ??
Its really sickening. We have presidents before and never displayed this cheap publicity of feeding Zambians through a president’s mercy. Feeding Mazabuka vulnerable is not feeding the whole Zambia. Government has to come up with solution to feed the entire nation, not donations from a president.
Any right thinking people or proper Civil society organisations would question all these current on-goings. Is it ECL’s personal money? Why now? Is it sustainable? We have always had vulnerable people, whom State systems are supposed to cater for consistently. If it’s not ECL’s personal money, which account is it from? How is it approved? Is he going to cover the whole country in this ‘crusade’?
But then, asking questions is because we know there are meant to be systems that demand accountability and transparency. On the other hand, we do know that these are shameless populist manoeuvres in an election year, carried out by a vision-less person, desperate to continue his and his cohorts’ privileged position of unbridled power and siphoning of resources.
