NDC leade Chishimba Kambwili has praised himself for helping stop presidential trips undertaken by President Edgar Lungu. Kambwili claims if it were not for him, President Lungu would still be travelling around the world. President Lungu’s trips were a growing concern for ordinary citizens with politicians making political capital out if it. The Head of State announced he will cut down on international trips and possibly not travel abroad this year. BELOW IS KAMBWILI’S STATEMENT Good evening. Countrymen and women today I was very happy for two reasons. My pressure and the pressure being mounted by the NDC over careless traveling the President was doing at the expense of the common Zambian has paid off. I am glad President Lungu has once again done as I tell him to do, due to the constant pressure the President announced that he will not travel in the whole of 2018. Mr President well done for listening to me all the time. In addition if the President can cancel all international trips on my say so, it makes you wonder why he could not have done this earlier to save the taxpayer millions of kwacha. The reason is simple, ECL tried to dupe citizens by forfeiting his wage for political mileage and the only way he could make up for this was to increase irrelevant traveling in order to capitalize on his international duty allowances. Moving back to why I am very happy tonight. President Lungu officially launched the campaign season by encouraging us the opposition to campaign also. In the coming weeks/months the NDC will launch its countrywide mobilization tour and now that the President has decided to flag the campaigns, I hope the police will not have double standards in issuing police permits. I am so happy to finally move from constituency to constituency, province to province selling the NDC manifesto which is in its final stage and it will be due to unravel to every corner of the country. Thank you President Lungu for allowing my talent of speaking for the poor manifest. Now fix the corruption and everything else I have told you to do.

Agriculture Minister Dora Siliya is disappointed with the services of Atlas Mara Bank and UBA Bank in the implementation of the e-voucher during this farming season. Siliya says the of the eight banks engaged by government, the two banks have been disappointing. She says even Barclays Bank which was engaged late has done well in terms of activating the cards. Siliya states that despite government releasing the money, the two banks have been taking too much time to load the money onto the cards. The Agriculture Minister said this when she checked on some agro dealers in Chongwe after some farmers could not access the inputs despite their cards showing they had money in them,owing to the failure by some banks to load the money onto the cards. Siliya later visited Atlas Mara Chongwe branch to find out why the bank was not activating the cards despite the government releasing the money. And Atlas Mara Bank Chongwe Branch Manager Judith Nalumino said the activation of the e-voucher cards is done at the Head office in Lusaka after the District Agricultural Coordinaton has submitted the list of the cards to be activated.
