President Hakainde Hichilema (HH) has also promised to buy Traditional Leaders Vehicles to easy their movements as they perform their duties.

The PF under Michael Sata increased perks for Chiefs to K15, 000 per month and the Edgar Lungu administration provided Chiefs with vehicles.

The UPND Administration now promises to build palaces and provide Chiefs with vehicles. UPND Secretary General Batuke Imenda disclosed this today when he paid a courtesy call on Chieftainess Waitiwika of the Namwanga people in Nakonde District of Muchinga Province.

This is contained in a statement seen by Zambian Eye by Imenda who is touring the Northern region.

I paid a courtesy call on Chieftainess Waitwika of the Namwanga people in Nakonde District of Muchinga Province this afternoon.

During our interaction, I informed Her Royal Highness that President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA has decreed that one million kwacha per year should go towards the construction of Chief’s Palaces.

Another issue of importance I highlighted is the mobility of traditional leaders. To this effect, I informed her Royal Highness that President Hichilema will allocate vehicles to chiefs to ease their mobility as they discharge their duties.

Her Royal Highness expressed happiness with the developmental projects being undertaken in her chiefdom.

The traditional leader commended President Hichilema for putting in place a robust project monitoring and evaluation mechanism.

Through me, Her Royal Highness Chieftainess Waitwika invited President Hichilema to grace the 2023 Mutomolo ceremony of the Namwanga people of Nakonde District to be held during the last Saturday of August.

Traditional leaders play a significant role in the social, political, and economic lives of citizens hence we shall continue to engage them.
