Proflight to launch direct flights between Ndola and Solwezi

Filed under: Business,Latest News |

Proflight, Zambia’s leading scheduled airline, will connect two of nation’s leading economic powerhouses starting from this month.
From January 16, 2017, the airline will add a direct flight three times a week between Ndola and Solwezi, providing convenient travel between the Copperbelt business hub and the North-Western Province mining centre.
The new direct route will attract more investment in the mining sector and bring to life the tourism industry in North-Western province, said the airline.
The new scheduled service from Ndola to Solwezi will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and will take just 1 hour, compared with the lengthy and uncomfortable road trip between the two urban centres, and a longer flight via Lusaka.
Ndola being the industrial and commercial centre of the Copperbelt, and Solwezi being one of the most important cities in the mining sector, the two make a significant contribution to the economy of the country.
“The flight schedule will reduce the hassle of people having to fly via Lusaka to travel between Ndola and Solwezi, or drive for over 339km on a really bad road. Time is money, so if you value money, you will value time. Therefore, we are pleased to announce our new one-hour direct flight from Ndola to Solwezi, as it will bring efficiency, effectiveness and smart movement of its time-conscious business travellers and tourists between the two towns,” said Proflight Director of Government and Industry Affairs Capt. Philip Lemba.
The Ndola-Solwezi flight will depart Ndola at 08:30hrs on Tuesdays and Fridays, arriving Solwezi at 09:30hrs. On Thursdays, the flight will depart Ndola at 13:35hrs, arriving Solwezi at 14:35. The return flight departs Solwezi at 09:55hrs on Tuesdays and Fridays, arriving Ndola at 10:55hrs. On Thursdays, the flight will depart Solwezi at 15:00hrs arriving Ndola at 16:00.
The flight will not only contribute greatly to the investment potential in the province, but also the tourism industry as it will bring back to life the West Lunga National Park, which is the pride of the North Western ecosystem.
“We take keen interest in improving the tourism industry in Zambia. With the steps taken by the government to protect the West Lunga ecosystem, Proflight will increase traffic for tourists coming to visit the West Lunga park and other wildlife attractions, by flying them on its Ndola-Solwezi direct flight,” he added.

  1. Election qualification

    I have no doubt that some of you have not even read or seen the constitution.

    You imagine things and the you speak them out, building your cases on such futile imaginations.

    Let me help you with articles that deal with this subject. Check below:

    (5) When a vacancy occurs in the office of President, except
    under Article 81—
    (a) the Vice-President shall immediately assume the office
    of President; or
    (b) if the Vice-President is unable for a reason to assume the
    office of President, the Speaker shall perform the
    executive functions, except the power to—
    (i) make an appointment; or
    (ii) dissolve the National Assembly;
    and a presidential election shall be held within sixty days
    after the occurrence of the vacancy.

    (6) If the Vice-President assumes the office of President, in
    accordance with clause (5)(a), or a person is elected to the office
    of President as a result of an election held in accordance with
    clause 5(b), the Vice-President or the President-elect shall serve
    for the unexpired term of office and be deemed, for the purposes
    of clause (3)—
    (a) to have served a full term as President if, at the date on
    which the President assumed office, at least three years
    remain before the date of the next general election; or
    (b) not to have served a term of office as President if, at the
    date on which the President assumed office, less than
    three years remain before the date of the next general
    election.

    Take note:

    cause 5(b), the Vice-President or the President-elect shall serve
    for the unexpired term of office and be deemed, for the purposes of clause (3)—

    (a) to have served a full term as President if, at the date on
    which the President assumed office, at least three years
    remain before the date of the next general election; or

    (b) not to have served a term of office as President if, at the
    date on which the President assumed office, less than
    three years remain before the date of the next general
    election.

    Now, what does clause (3) say?

    3) A person who has twice held office as President is not
    eligible for election as President.

    The reason why 5(b) is there is to determine whether a term of office was attained in order to ether qualify of disqualify (in clause 3) a person who has served part-term.

    Take note that it says for the purpose of clause (3).

    Thus if a person has served one full term and one part- term, if that part-term is 3 years or more then he has held office twice, else only the full term is counted.

    In this case Lungu has held one part-term, and now, this one which will be full term by 2021. The part-term was less than 3 years (actually less than two years).

    Therefore, for the purpose of clause (3), Lungu did not hold office. It was zero. Thus he is just beginning to serve a term now, and FOR PURPOSE OF CLAUSE (3), he has never held Office of President, but just starting to hold office of President now.

    Peace for Zambia
