President Edgar Lungu says it is a scandal that a number of infrastructure projects in Muchinga province have stalled.

President Lungu says almost all projects stalled ten months ago reportedly due to lack of funding.

The President has questioned why it should take so long to complete development projects in some areas when he wants to see equitable distribution of resources.

President Lungu says opposition strongholds as well as PF strongholds must share resources equally.

He said it is time people stopped playing the blame game and work hard.

The President said he will in the coming few days meet with the Minister for Muchinga Province to decide which projects can be worked on quickly.

He was speaking to journalists on arrival in Lusaka from his three-day working visit in Muchinga province.

  1. Hmmmm how is it a scandal when the main complain is that contractors are not being paid by government to proceed. I shall not even blame Edgar Lungu because he was honest enough to say he has ‘no vision’. I will blam Late Micheal SATA for having comitted so many projects without Treasury Support !. Stadium uku, hospital uku yet you have a critical shortage of nurses, doctors and teachers. So who was going to man those ‘sontables’ ?
    It is plain truth that the Government is BROKE !!!!
