President Hichilema determined to fostering unity in the country


President Hakainde Hichilema has committed to unifying the country to actualize the goals of the visionary leaders who fought for Zambia’s independence.

The President says his administration is determined to honouring the peace efforts of the fallen heroes who risked their lives meeting under the Samu Lya Moomba tree in Monze strategizing on delivering the country from colonial rule.

The President was speaking in Monze today when he graced the Samu lya Moomba traditional ceremony of Tonga – Ila people of Chief Choongo in Southern province.

President Hichilema has since pledged to maintain the unifying spirit of the event which the country’s forefathers recognized as a pre – requisite to national development.

The Head of State highlighted government’s commitment to implement projects aimed at bettering the lives of the Zambians as envisioned by the country’s freedom fighters.

Mr Hichilema has since assured the people of Monze that government will complete the construction of the Monze – Niko road whose works have stalled over the years.

And speaking earlier, Chief Choongo who spoke through a representative, appealed to government to consider constructing a university in Monze that will be biased towards livestock and agricultural trainings.

He said livestock farming is main economic activity for the people of Monze and Southern province as a whole hence the need to have a university in the region.

Meanwhile Southern Province Minister, Cornelius Mweetwa has commended President Hakainde Hichilema for becoming the first President to recognize the role Samu lya Moomba played in the country’s political history.

And Minister of Tourism, Ronald Sikumba said his ministry will continue marketing the ceremony domestically and internationally.


  1. Lusaka times seems to be a vuvuzela for hh and upnd. Even when he goes to toilet, they will make it a headline.

  2. Can he comment on the lack of security in the country. We are very worried for our girl children in zambia. What would I do if anything happened to my daughter and nieces in zambia.

    Auntie Catherine.

  3. But you still peruse the same headlines.Grow up
    I have argued before, that PF memebers,perhaps the PF cabinet itself,conived to deny essential fertilizers and seed to needy farmers in southern and western provices .There was political intent to starve poeple in some regions of Zambia.This is reason enough to lift the immunity of ECL and others.Reasoning can show that had PF won the August 2021 elections,there would have been human-induced hunger especially among women and children in these regions.Some PF members must be held accountable.But for some reason UPND NGOs and other stakeholders dont seem to appreciate the seriousness of this savage intent.This is exactly how civil wars begin

    • This is October, the so called inputs have not been distributed. What is about Southern Province this, Southern Province that. Yet the headline talks about uniting the nation. This nation will never unity for as long as some tribes feel it is their time to eat.

  4. On course to being in the top draw of Zambian presidents……….

    After revamping the economy……….

    Can we have a modernisation and overall of law enforcement, and ………

    Revamp the education system away from western style education to be more aligned to the Chinese and far eastern education systems………

  5. Actions speak louder than words. Your appointments and firing parastatal employees and civil servants point to divisive and not unity. Time to mend.
