KITWE district commissioner Chanda Kabwe says President Lungu is re-writing history by his bold move to work from Kitwe for five days.
Mr Kabwe said in an interview yesterday that the people of Kitwe are elated that President Lungu will live with them for such a long time.
“This goes to show you that President Lungu is a people-person. He understands the grassroots. He wants to see for himself what is on the ground,” he said.
Mr Kabwe said Kitwe is the hub of the Copperbelt and is politically the nerve centre for the Patriotic Front and boasts of many registered voters.
“As a district, we feel humbled and blessed that the President will work from here. This is the first time a head of State is doing this. We are so happy,” he said.
Mr Kabwe said President Lungu will go down in history as a great President, who listened to people and connected with ordinary Zambians.
“Kitwe is also a hub of the mines. So his coming will provide many answers and solutions. We will give him all the support,” he said.
Last week, President Lungu’s special assistant for press and public relations Amos Chanda announced that State House will from October 29 to November 2, 2015 be operating from Kitwe
