“This is what a government that cares for the people does. We are more than happy to have received these inputs on time. Us here, farming is what we do best.
“You know the roads in here are not that good and when you bring inputs when it’s raining it becomes very difficult to deliver them. But look, you the PF and President Edgar Lungu have given us the inputs before the rains get serious. We are so thankful. Please go and tell the President that we are so happy,”
a smiling Chieftainess Shimukunami said.

And in response, Mr Chanda assured the traditional leader of the party and government support.
“We just came here to see how you are living. We are having a party mobilization meeting but we thought, we should first get the blessings from here,” Mr. Chanda said.
