I WILL continue supporting and working with the government of the day in accelerating development in my chiefdom and the district at large, says Chief Kanyama of the Lunda speaking people in Mwinilunga.
Speaking when minister of Community Development and Social Services, Olipa Phiri called on him at his palace over the weekend, Chief Kanyama charged that people criticizing President Edgar Lungu and his government are merely enemies of development.
The traditional leader said the Patriotic Front (PF) government under the leadership of President Lungu was delivering development to all parts of the country adding that the works were there for everyone to see.
He said he was not ashamed of being insulted by some people especially on social media that he had become a PF cadre.
‘’We have seen development being taken to each and every corner of this country including my chiefdom, and it is there for everyone to see. So, all those in the forefront criticizing the head of state are pure enemies of development,’’ he said.
And Ms Phiri said the PF government remains committed to reducing poverty and vulnerability among its people.
She assured the traditional leader of government’s continued support towards programs aimed at reducing poverty and vulnerability at household level.
