‘Development will earn Lungu massive vote’

BUTTYSON KANDIMBA, Solwezi
SENIOR Chief Ndungu of Zambezi district says Zambians will massively vote for President Lungu because of the infrastructure development projects his administration is undertaking countrywide.
Senior Chief Ndungu said his subjects are happy that the Patriotic Front (PF) government under the leadership of President Lungu has started working on the 90km stretch of the road in the west bank of the Zambezi River, from the pontoon to Chinyamalitapi.
The traditional leader said this is the first time that Government is working on the road since independence.
He also said Government is working on a number of bridges in Zambezi West.
Senior Chief Ndungu said once completed, the projects will open up the area to massive investment as it will be accessible by road.
“The people are very happy because after all these works on the roads and bridges are completed, the area will be opened up and I think as Zambezi we have benefited a lot in the one year President Lungu has been in office,” Chief Ndungu said in an interview yesterday.
He said the PF government has embarked on a number of projects in his area which will transform the lives of people.
“So come August 11 this year, my people will give a massive vote to the PF and President Lungu because we have benefited a lot in the last one year President Lungu has been in office,” he said.
Chief Ndungu cited the construction and upgrading of schools, health facilities and the construction of a police post in his chiefdom as some projects that have excited the people.
He said Government has completed the construction of a classroom block and a staff house at newly upgraded Mapachi Day Secondary School in his area.
“Within the Mize capital, we have been given a police post and three staff houses, and the contractor is expected to move on site soon,” he said.
Senior Chief Ndungu, however, appealed to the government to consider constructing two more health posts in his area to improve access to healthcare services.
He also appealed to Government to send relief food to Zambezi West as most families in the area are starving due to crop failure as a result of drought.
