‘Government doing well in Lufwanyama’

CHRISTINE CHIHAME, Kitwe
PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Lufwanyama district chairperson Justin Mulenga has taken a swipe at former Lufwanyama MMD member of Parliament Lwipa Puma for alleging that the ruling party has not done anything to foster development in the district.
Mr Mulenga was reacting to remarks attributed to Dr Puma published in The Post newspaper on December 29, 2015 in which he is alleged to have said that people’s suffering in Lambaland have worsened under the PF government.
Mr Mulenga said Dr Puma’s allegations are false and unfounded looking at the number of successes the ruling party has scored in the district since it formed government in 2011.
“Since we formed government in 2011, we have implemented numerous projects in Lufwanyama and completed even those that were started by the previous government. Dr Puma’s allegations that we have not done anything in Lufwanyama are false,” he said.
Mr Mulenga said Dr Puma was rejected by the people of Lufwanyama for failing to spearhead development in the area while serving as MP on the MMD ticket.
He said during his tenure of office, Dr Puma failed the people of Lufwanyama who were yearning for development.
Mr Mulenga charged that Dr Puma was so unpopular in Lufwanyama that even people in his village never knew him.
He said the residents of Lufwanyama are happy with the PF for fostering development in all parts of the district within the short time it has been in government.
Mr Mulenga said projects that the PF has implemented include the construction of a district hospital, two secondary schools, a mini-hospital in Chief Nkana’s area, a modern post office, 30 houses for civil servants and a police station.
Mr Mulenga said the government has also delivered farm inputs to the farmers on time and rehabilitated several feeder roads in the district to facilitate the smooth transportation of farm produce.
