    They are very a shamed to see that where their cattle were sleeping schools hospitals clinics roads and many other infrastructures are being constructed electricity in thatched houses provided in just 7yrs Zambia has changed for the better these idiots don’t because of tribalisma

      Though economic growth is central to development, it is important to note that growth alone does not guarantee that all people benefit and have access to social amenities. In Zambia 76.6% of the population are poor despite all the infrastructure development dotted in urban and selected rural areas, most of which are stalled (as seen from the program ‘My District’). As discovered by the First Lady in her go round Zambia program, the poorest people are in remote rural areas, having little or no education and assets, little or no access to medical services ,water and sanitation, social amenities, and belong to socially excluded groups. Economic growth of the country happens when you invest more in sectors where poor people earn their livelihood, such as manufacturing, industry,production, agricultural productivity as a central component of pro poor growth and protect them from excessive risk and externalization of the benefits accrued from the Zambian resources.Remember, investment in roads especially in towns using borrowed funds is not sustainable because their life span is about 5 yrs before we even start paying back the loan and then we shall ask for another loan for maintenance. Better to invest more in project that have pro poor multiplier effect to reduce poverty.

    For the opposition to appreciate the development done by the government is as difficult as a married woman appreciating the good performance of neighbor’s husband in bed in presence of both couples. Real Zambians can see

    Unless something is very wrong with Zambians or the electoral system,this government should not be allowed to continue after 2021.Infrastructure development using irresponsibly borrowed money is more harm to the country than good.Basic commodity prices are sky rocketing,fuel prices keep going up,hospitals have no drugs,donors have lost confidence in our government because of corruption..those that keep supporting this government are either somehow benefiting from the corrupt deals involved or have a serious levels of non patriotism..Kenneth Kaunda and Levy Mwanawasa meant well for this country and it’s people,their actions and governance styles speak volumes.

    ATI developments come to chipangali constituency at chiziye look at the roads from mugubundu turn off

    Analyse issues critically. Zambia has no oilfields. So you can’t blame anyone for price hikes.

  13. Razor

    Very soon those working at this new total headquarters will be laid off since there will be no fuel to sell as we won’t even have enough money to import the commodity.
