PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu this morning took some time to exercise with some contractors and Northern Province minister Brian Mundubile at Kasama Lodge.
President Lungu travelled to Kasama yesterday to commission oil and gas explorations will today attend the Ukusefya pa Ng’wena traditional ceremony of the Bemba speaking people.
But a government official has wondered why State House was exposing President Lungu’s interactions with contractors.
You can see from the picture the association that our President is maintaining. It is all about contractors. Unfortunately, even his advisors can’t even take care before releasing some of these pictures because people will start wondering how these contractors he is with in this picture gained access to him early morning. The man on the right side of the President is Mr. Akabondo Munalula, who is a road contractor and a close ally of Mr Bwezani [Rupiah Banda]. And by the way, this same man is a business partner for Brian Mundubile, the Northern Province minister (on President Lungu’s left). The other man is Mr Ntinda, also a local contractor,
said the official.
This picture tells a big story that many people may not see. It is all about contracts.
