HH ends his two-day working tour of Northwestern


President Hakainde has returned to Lusaka after concluding his two days working visit to Northwestern province.

The Presidential plane took off at Solwezi airport at about 17:43 hours.

On hand to see the Republican President and his entourage was Provincial Minister Robert Lihefu, Permanent secretary Grandson Katambi, the mayor Remmy Kalepa and senior government and party officials.

While in the province President Hichilema held public rallies in Manyinga and Solwezi districts and inspected some stalled developmental projects, respectively.

He also graced the party Gala dinner in Solwezi last evening and attended a church service at Seventh day Adventist central church before meeting party officials today.


  1. Oops, maybe we’re missing something here, nothing mentioning the president implementing or enforcing the laws written by Parliament. It is more about campaigning and showing off camouflage clothing alongside. GRZ What’s going on?

  2. I hope your Excellence you understand now why the former President used to travel as well. You called him Kamwendo munjira so now just weigh yourself how many trips this year alone. African politics need to change

  3. You should have traveled by road so that you can see the urgency of putting up decent infrastructure for part of the country that is a life line for Zambia. NWP needs decent roads, Airport, Hospital, and a University. Not much to ask for a province that has been neglected by success governments. Western, NWP and Southern and Eastern provinces need urgent infrastructure upgrades to catchup with the rest.

    • Why have you left out Luapula, Northern, and Muchinga? Are they more developed than the provinces you say are neglected? I am now beginning to believe one opposition politician who opined that the long term goal of the UPND is to isolate and under-develop the predominantly Bemba speaking regions into extinction.

    • Are you taking the biscuit? How many universities has Muchinga province got? every province should have a modern airport, general hospital and university as minimum. Some provinces have two airports at international standard while others have airstrips. We need to fix this.
