PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu is expected on the Copperbelt for a three day working visit starting today.

In an interview, Copperbelt Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe said the visit was very important for the Copperbelt Province.

Nundwe said President Lungu was purely going to tour developmental projects.

“Yes I can confirm that His Excellency the President Dr Edgar Lungu is coming to the Copperbelt for a three day working visit. The President is coming purely for developmental projects,” Nundwe said.

“The President has an intense programme and it is to deal with issues of developmental projects.”

Nundwe said President Lungu would also worship with the Seventh Day-Adventist Church on Saturday in Kitwe.

“We are still in the COVID-19 pandemic so I want to urge people not to come in large numbers at the airport, but give support to the President,” said Nundwe.
