1

Acting President Inonge Wina says time has come for Zambians to be seen as one people despite their various ethnic groupings.

And Senior Chief Mushili of the Lamba people in Masaiti District has appealed to government to include Masaiti District on the developmental agenda of the country.

The Acting President said the PF was a bit disturbed when they received reports that their chosen candidate was being considered as an outsider.

“Your highness as a party we were a bit disturbed when received reports that the person we’ve chosen as our candidate is being considered as an outcast. Time has come for Zambians regardless of their ethnic groupings to be seen as one,” she said.

ZANIS reports that the Acting President said this when she paid a courtesy call on Senior Chief Mushili at his palace in Masaiti district ahead of her rally at Masangano where she was drumming up support for the PF candidate Michael Katambo in the forthcoming Masaiti parliamentary by election.

She further said the PF government would like the Lamba’s to realise that it wants to include them in the governance of the nation.

And Senior Chief Mushili of the Lamba people in Masaiti District has appealed to government to include Masaiti District on the developmental agenda of the country.

The Chief, who said this through his interpreter Prince Robert Mushili, his son, explained that Masaiti District still has inadequate health facilities to carter for the growing population in the area.

“When Honourable Katambo is delivered to government as the area Member of Parliament, work with him to ensure that you build us more clinics because our clinics are far apart and our people have transport challenges,” he said.

He added that there is need for government to look into the education sector because most children from Masaiti District do not go as far as University level in education due to high school fees.

“As Lamba’s it would be good if you can also put up deliberate measures to ensure that Children from here go as far as the University level because currently that is not happening. Children from here cannot afford the high tuition fees at the University of Zambia” he said.

Earlier the Acting President paid another Courtesy Call on Senior Chief Chiwala who complained that officials from the Ndola City Council where illegally allocating land in his chiefdom.

The Senior Chief informed the Acting President that he has since written to the Provincial Minister and has no option but to take the matter to the police.
