A TRADITIONAL leader in Sinda has congratulated the Constitutional Court on dismissing the petition contesting the re-election of President Edgar Lungu, saying it had delayed economic development in Zambia.
In an interview at her palace on Monday, Chieftainess Nyanje of the Nsenga-speaking people of Petauke said she was worried that if government changed many things could have come to a standstill or even cancelled altogether.
She said the continuation with PF would let the development of roads, palaces, clinics continue.
“We were worried that if we change government most of the developmental projects would come to a standstill because when governments change, many things change. We were afraid that our palaces and roads might not be completed,” she said.
The traditional leader said there was only one winner in a competition and appealed to those that lost to forge ahead.
She thanked her subjects for voting wisely and appealed to them to support any development the government might find fit for their areas.
“I wish to state that, we need government to provide what they promised such as water, schools and clinics because these are things that people lack. I wish to thank my subjects for voting wisely and I want to remind and urge them to be in support of any development that we might be given by the government,” said Chieftainess Nyanje.
