  2. “I would say the people of Luapula and indeed Northern Province have been sidelined in terms of development. No wonder when you come around, like where we went for that ceremony [Samu lya Moomba], you could see the difference between Luapula and Southern Province. Southern Province is much developed than Luapula and Northern. I have gone as far as Chipata, I have seen a very big difference. There is balanced development in other provinces.” Chief Mabumba of Luapula .
    So where is the unprecedented infrastructural development that PF talks about?

  3. Why is chitumukulu writing on matters like a real chief only now ????

    Before , he was the chief of posts with political undertons and innuendos……

    That’s why he earned the name chief brown envelope cader…… .

  4. Ever since he made his embarrassing U-turn regarding the election process, when it was clear he had been bribed massively by Edgar China Lungu – all Bemba’s are quietly waiting for him to move on. What a hypocritical and useless Chief!

  5. This one must be one of the most completely useless “chieves” in Zambia. His agony too is refusing to meet HH because the man is Tonga only for HH to become elected as president, kuunya bebele mwine luBemba

  7. Good idea, but why now?

    Anyway, it is never too late to do some good.

    But stay out of politics. You and Mpezeni have let your people down by siding with the corrupt PF at a time when citizens were being gassed, brutalised and mistreated.
