Letters to the Editor -LogoI find it  quite sad to read all the articles and letters attacking the person and Presidency of Edgar Lungu.
Are we Zambians so naïve as to forget so easily? I think what a lot of us fail to appreciate is that the President has ruled Zambia only for seven months, which has been largely a transitional phase.
Surely for us Zambians to have expected the man to change the fortunes of the country overnight is a gross over-statement.
Yes, the man was elected to State House for the right reasons.
Every struggle is shaped by the circumstances and challenges of the time.
The PF should continue with its innovative infrastructure development projects: Health and education; water and electricity; housing and employment programmes designed to put the country on the road to prosperity.
Bringing to the attention of individuals, groups, nations and multinational corporations positive developments like this and other similar advancements could be done primarily to help attract massive dollars to fund the country’s infrastructure projects. Billions are still needed.

State wins kudos over Bwana Mkubwa oil project

I wish to commend the Government through the Zambia Development Agency for granting an investment licence to Bwana Mkubwa Oil Refinery and Pipeline project.
This initiative will not only create viable  alternatives to oil production but will also create substantial employment base for Zambians.
I wish to call on well-meaning international corporations to partner with SubSahara Gemstone Exchange Company of Ndola in pursuing this noble agenda.
The creation of 18,000 jobs for locals should be commended, especially during this very difficult period of Zambia’s economic growth.

Chikola residents cry for police post

With the rampant thefts that engulf Chikola Shopping Complex in the night, one is bent to believe there is a dire need for a police post in the area.
Chikola Township has tremendously grown and the catchment is still growing with the inclusion of Chikola Loop Extension and Valley View area, hence the need for the police post to serve the masses.
Not too long ago an upcoming business entrepreneur had his shop at Chikola Shopping Complex broken into in the night and thieves went away with computers and other assortments.
The few businessmen I have talked to recently are, however, ready to partner with the municipality to erect the police post if only land can be made availed to the residents for this purpose.
