President Hichilema is tomorrow expected in the Copperbelt

Headlines President Hichilema is tomorrow expected in the Copperbelt

President Hakainde Hichilema is tomorrow Friday, May 13, expected in the Copperbelt Province for a one day working visit.

Copperbelt Province Permanent Secretary, Augustine Kasongo has disclosed in an interview with ZANIS in Ndola today, that the plane carrying the Head of State is expected to land at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe Airport in Ndola at 09:00 hours and will be received by the Provincial Minister, Elisha Matambo and Heads of Government Departments.

He said the President will proceed to Mpongwe District where he is expected to officiate at this year’s National Agriculture Field Day being organised by the Zambia National Farmers Union (ZNFU) to be held at a farm in Mukumpu area located in Ndubeni Chiefdom.

Mr. Kasongo explained that the President will participate in crop field visit and tour exhibition stands for Agro dealers.

He said the President is also expected to return to Lusaka after the end of the programme.

This year’s National Agriculture field day is being held under the theme “Transforming Agriculture Sector and enriching the lives of farmers and consumers for generations to come.


  1. I ask him not to close his eyes as he’ll obviously go by chopper from Ndola. Let him see how the road from Mponger is holding development in that area. He must also be brave and meet the people of Chingola and Chililabombwe and explain his decision to bring back Vedanta. He shouldn’t leave it to Kabuswe to face the Kopala people alone

  2. 1- Vedanta is not back until an unambiguous statement is made to that effect. An unbiased reading of what the president said is an agreement had been reached to ceasefire with respect to litigation. Although it sounds like Vedanta is already back tracking suing to remove the new liquidator.

    2- The KCM orebody is not low hanging fruit. Any miner that ends up managing the project may ask for flexibility to overcome the geologic challenges and at the same time make a return.

  3. I hope he gets to ride on the road from the new International airport to the Ndola Kitwe dual carriageway. You need to have your seatbelt on securely or you will tumble out.
