Newly elected UPND Dundumwezi Member of Parliament Edgar Singombe says the people of Dundumwezi will only welcome President Edgar Lungu’s announced visit to the area if he comes with solutions to the many problems facing the people.
Speaking in an interview shortly after the inauguration ceremony of President Lungu, Mr Singombe said President Lungu should not use Dundumwezi as a mockery of development instead must deliver tangible development.
He said the people of Dundumwezi voted in the manner they did as a protest against under development.
Mr Singombe said after late President Sata visited the area, there was hope that the PF government will deliver development but to no avail.
He said President Lungu should only come with answers as to why the people of Dundumwezi are not benefitting from the national cake.
“Yes i have heard him mentioning Dundumwezi, that is nice but let him not mock those people because they voted like that expecting development and now that he has imposed himself on the people’s will, let him deliver,” Mr. Singombe said.
” We were told that mobile and road network challenges will soon be a thing of the past in my constituency but nothing has been done up to now,” he said.
Meanwhile Singombe has pledged his continued support of the UPND president Hakainde Hichilema.
He said the party has to unite and go back to the people who voted for Mr Hichilema and has since advised UPND supporters to remain calm and wait for a directive from the top authorities.
