Chief Mwase calls for refurbishing of Lundazi Airstrip


Senior Chief Mwase of the Chewa speaking people of Lundazi District in Eastern Province says he needs the old Lundazi airstrip revamped.

Chief Mwase says once the airstrip is restored, it will be easier for the Zambia Flying Doctors Service to land in the district and render free medical services to the people.

The Senior Chief was speaking when a team from the Zambia Flying Doctors Service Called on him at his palace.

ZFDS Chief Medical Officer, Mulenga Chilambwe told the traditional Leader that his team has already seen over 200 patients in the area.

He said the Zambia Flying Doctors Service would like to work with local leadership so that it is easier to land in chiefdoms and offer medical services to the people.


  1. Where are the area MPs? Jay Jay and “remaindee Zulu”? Here are the issues that your people are raising. Are you bring them up in Parliament? Or just concerned with bring a Ministry of Religious Affairs like its needs policy direction?
    We can now see when elected leader focus on selfserving instead of addressing the issues that face their electorate. The two and others that go to parliament just to agitate for more money for themselves instead of looking at the issues that face the people ,should hang their heads in shame.
    PF MP Chanda (former Media Director) is a good example. Work for the people, people wont eat your empty rethoric.

    • Jata Bulenge: Chipata is not eastern province and Eastern Province is not Chipata. JJ’s constituency is like 350km from Lundazi with 3 districts in between. Munir is for Lumezi which is in Lundazi district close to Lundazi Constituency. What do you want these MPs to do? Refurbish an airstrip? They can agitate but not in the manner you suggest.
