  1. ………

    “….Chief among the concerns raised were the longstanding challenges of poor road networks and inadequate infrastructure plaguing Muchinga Province for over a decade….”

    Most zambia chiefs are illiterate or semi litrate……..

    Instead of calling for factories , they want roads and shopping malls in their fifdoms……….

    • Ba Spaka, NO ONE WILL PUT A FACTORY WHERE THERE IS NO RELIABLE,ENERGY AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURE!! The Chiefs know what they are talking about. Some of these areas are very productive agriculturally but poor access to markets due to poor road network limits progress in the sector!

  2. You can understand why Chiefs need roads if you have been to Muyombe by road. You would wonder where some MPs direct their focus. Sad.

    • Alinuwila

      The roads are bad , but what would you rather have ……..

      A factory to create jobs or a road ……..?

      Roads don’t make factories while factories make roads from neccessaty………
