Chiefs in Chama district of Muchinga Province, have endorsed and pledged to support the candidature of President Edgar Lungu in the August 12, 2021 presidential election.
Speaking on behalf of other Senga chiefs in the district, Chief Lundu said traditional leaders in the region have resolved to rally behind President Edgar Lungu in the August 12, 2021 presidential election.
Chief Lundu said the traditional leadership in Chama want to retain President Lungu after the August 12 general elections because of what his administration has done for the people in the area.
Chief Lundu who was flanked by Senior Chief Kambombo and Tembwe said the Patriotic Front (PF) government has transformed Chama district which he said was neglected by previous administrations.
He said that it is in the PF administration that the face of Chama district has been changed adding that Chama district now boasts of having best township roads with street lights in the region.
The people of Chama will forever remain indebted to President Lungu and his administration for working hard to improve lives of Zambian citizens through massive infrastructure development and other life-changing programmes.
“They say that chiefs should not involve themselves in politics but it is the same chiefs who live with the people and see what everyone else sees in the chiefdom and this is why as chiefs, we are saying that the PF Government has performed and we will work hard to ensure that it is given another mandate to rule this country after the August 12, 2021 general elections, “he said.
Chief Lundu said President Lungu has proved to have genuine concern for the poor and vulnerable in society with an abiding commitment to the welfare of the people of Chama and Zambia as a whole.
Chief Lundu charged that President Lungu has demonstrated that giving him another term in office, Chama and Zambia will never be the same.
“Chama district and Zambia as a whole has been transformed under the able leadership of President Edgar Lungu and his administration,” said Chief Lundu.
Under his administration’s mantra of leaving no one behind, President Lungu’s administration has not left out Chama District with various social economic development ventures such as building schools, health posts and provision of power through the Rural Electrification Authority (REA), among others.
