Lungu will also upgrade Lundazi and Chadiza to municipalities.
Lungu is scheduled to travel to Chipata tomorrow (Friday) to officiate at this year’s N’cwala traditional ceremony of the Ngoni speaking people.
The president of Malawi Peter Mutharika and Filipe Nyusi of Mozambique are also expected to attend the ceremony.
In exchange for declaring Chipata a city, Lungu will be conferred with some meaningless title of ‘free man of Chipata.’
The truth is that all Zambian are free to be in Chipata.
