Tasila’s Opulent Kuku Grounds Launched

The Mayor of Lusaka City Miles Sampa has told youths of Nkoloma Ward 1 to effectively use the newly commissioned Kuku Grounds to develop their sports talents.

Sampa said he wanted to see world class sports men and women coming from Nkoloma Ward 1 and surrounding areas.

He said this at the official handover of Kuku Grounds in Nkolama Ward 1 on Friday.

“You are a lucky generation. When I was growing up in Matero, there were no sports facilities like this one but we used to play games in dusty grounds. So use this facility to develop your sports talents. I would like to see world class sports men and women coming from here,” Sampa said.

Kuku Grounds, a brain child of Nkoloma Ward 1 Councillor Tasila Lungu, have been constructed by Avic International.

Sampa praised Tasila for dedicating time to helping the community and her passion for youth development and empowerment.

The City Mayor said Nkolama Ward 1 was just one of the 33 wards in Lusaka and wished that such facilities could be replicated in all the wards.

    Job well done Tasila, you’re the best councillor in Zambia am sure. Yes some may say iyo pantu mwana wakwa President that’s y alechitile ifi, but the question is how many among the Presidents sons have done this in Zambia? The answer is none, we had MULENGA SATA in BAULENI, he did nothing. Eto came to BAULENI and left a project to build a ground just like you have done. Come and see ifyabupuba fyeka fyeka efilechitikako, but you with your commitment you’ve done it. Bravo to you little girl, and I ask you to stand as MP in 2021, uka wina.

    Now for maintenance of that facility, please employee your own boys and girls whom you will be taking care of yourself or better still a company that will be fully in charge of maintenance, not ba council bakonaulafye iyo ground.

  9. Yes I

    The Mayor. He grew up in Matero and says there were no sports facilities. If he was born in the 70s, then he has forgotten all schools, primary and secondary, had football and netball grounds. There was also Matero Stadium that hosted inter schools sports competitions.

    The Nkoloma Ward 1 sports facility is a big up in all ways

    Well done Tasila…,,,can you please tell us how you managed to source the funding for such a big project? May be other councillors can take a leaf from you and implement various essential projects we desperately need in our communities.

      Do u need to care where the money came from or being happy that Communitee has benefited and is healthy for the country

    Let’s do this even in our ZSL we have fine
    stadiums but the status of the pitches is very
    poor, and like NKANA FC said If our clubs could
    take this very important step it will enhance our
    ZSL.

    • Mr. Bemba land is great

      The so called concerned citizen has been brain washed by hakainde he thinks every thing done is tàx payers there about 19. MPs in southern province and hundreds of councillors what have they done in their areas? Nothing. Tasila has contacts that can assist her to initiate and found projects that are vital in her areas this very important project is not gvt funded but her willingness to work for. Zambia fools depend on hear say and not the righthing

    This bemba land is great man or woman is a fool. How does hakainde come in? Bitterness will never take us anywhere countrymen/women. Tasila is on the right track tho it was easy coz of some political mealige and connections. The point here let’s give chance to young generation NOT recirculing old old men/women

  17. Johakis

    Job well done, but we know where this money is coming from..

    This is the way to go. She has demonstrated that she is a true leader who cares for the community. She has demonstrated how leaders should engage society. Many souls will be saved through this project which is above politics. long live Tasila, you have given hope to many youths.
