chitimukulu and lunguPatriotic Front (PF) deputy chairperson for elections Kelvin Bwalya Fube has says President Edgar Lungu’s development agenda has a national color and cuts through tribe and regions. Fube said this in a statement made available to Zamban Eye.

“President Edgar Chagwa Lungu’s development agenda has a national colour that cuts through the noise of tribalism and rregionalis,” Fube said.

“President Lungu has continued to visit and launch multi-billion kwacha projects even in areas where he got a dismal number of votes such as the Southern Province and the North-Western Province.The road that leads to the Southern Province tourism capital of Zambia, Livingstone, and cuts through the major towns of the province have been built and completed on the PF wwatc,” Fube explained

“The 1800 megawatt power plant that shall make load shedding history once it is completed in two years’ time is being built on Edgar Lungu’s watch and it is located in Batoka, Southern Province. The 148 megawatt project that shall add another 148 megawatt to the national grid at Maamba in Southern Province is being built on President Edgar Lungu’s watch,” he said

But during a campaign tour in Northern Province, Lungu is alleged to have told a campaign rally that he can only take development to areas and regions which will vote for him

  2. This Kelvin is really dull. If Lungu had an option of having coal elsewhere other than Maamba, the power project wouldnt be where it is today, based on his thinking. In other words the project is there becausecLungu cant change what nature gave to southern province. I wonder how this guy Kelvin ended up at a universiyy with this lack of logic. If you understood the meaning of democracy, the voting and development patterns should not necessarily be corallated, that is if at all you understand what this means.

  3. The Batoka Gorge is an MMD baby. They started it and if you want to more about it ask Nawakwi who was minister of energy at the time. Why has Lungu failed to develop Kalungwishi which is a very ripe project than Batoka? Batoka has issues as it is to be done with Zimbabwe. Given this scenario PF will not develop this power station in the next ten years.

  4. For the first time in the history of Zambia we are hearing the word tribe tribe tribe and tribe in PF campaign messages… Does this confirm the view that PF was founded on principle of exerting tribal supremacy in this country?. Surely there are plenty of campaign issues and not to talk about tribe all the time.
