Lungu should rule beyond 2021, says Chief MbolomaBy Joseph Mwenya in Kabwe on 16 Aug 2018
Senior Chief Mboloma of Luano district in Central Province says President Edgar Lungu needs more time to finish the many developmental projects that his government has embarked on, and therefore should rule beyond 2021.
In an interview, Senior Chief Mboloma said the five Chiefdoms in Central Province had witnessed remarkable development under the PF regime.
“I am grateful to President Lungu for tarring the roads in my chiefdom. I can cite Chiponya – Masansa Road in old Mkushui and Mpula – Masansa roads which have been worked on to bituminous standard. The President has also built a bridge for us on Muswishi River. We even have a district administration block now in Luano. Luano also has a mini-hospital now and we have since been given an ambulance. This shows that President Lungu is working hard to improve the lives of the people in my chiefdom,” Senior Chief Mboloma said.
The traditional leader said President Lungu needed more time to complete the various development projects that he has embarked on.
He added that he would name the hospital in the area as “Edgar Chagwa Lungu Hospital” because of the Head of State’s dedication to duty.
“President Lungu has done so much in the few years that he has been in power. I have been a traditional leader for over 40 years and this development under the PF is unprecedented,” he said.
And the Senior Chief threatened to sue a named media house in Kabwe for misquoting him that he criticised the patriotic front for failing to develop his chiefdom.
“I issued a statement recently appealing to government for help in my chiefdom but to my disappointment the said media house reported that I was criticising government for failing to work. When I get my subsidy for July, I will sue in the High Court because I was embarrassed by the story. They have to apologise to me,” said the Senior Chief.
“I am loyal to the President. My son, Chrispin Mboloma, is actually a PF councillor. So how can I be accused of criticising the PF? I came to the Provincial Administration today to meet the Permanent Secretary, Chanda Kabwe and put it clear that I support the Head of State. So I want to silence the critics by openly declaring my support for President Lungu. I am urging all my chiefs to support President Lungu. Come 2021, President Lungu will win the elections and he should continue to lead. He is a hardworking president. Let us support him.”Related Items
