Sata to move Chirundu to Lusaka, Solwezi to Copperbelt

The Patriotic Front (PF) government is in the process of moving Chirundu from Southern province to Lusaka province.

Government sources have revealed that the PF has started to cede Solwezi from Northwestern and move it to the Copperbelt province.

On 24th January, 2012, Southern province minister Miles Sampa and Lusaka province minister Gerry Chanda visited Chirundu in Southern province to explain what developmental projects that their government would conduct in the area.

But to the surprise of local people, Sampa announced that Chirundu will soon be moved to Lusaka.

When they were challenged by local people, Sampa and Chanda responded that their president Michael Sata has already signed the relevant laws and the move will not be reversed.

According to information received, Kaoma district will be moved from Western to Central province.

Lukulu district will also be moved to Northwestern province.

Itezhi-tezhi will also be detached from Southern province and pushed to Central province.

The PF government wants Namalundu power plant, Kariba north power plant, and Munali mine  to be in Lusaka province.
