Patriotic Front Kankoyo Member of Parliament Brian Mushimba was recently taken to task after some members of the grassroot structures in the constituency accused him of not visiting the people that elected him into Office. The people in the grassroot structures complained that the Parliamentarian has sidelined most of the people that helped him win in the elections. Those talked to said the Parliamentarian who is also Transport and Communication Minister has been too busy leaving his constituency to attend to Ministerial duties. One of the officials in the structures said Patriotic Front Provincial Chairman Stephen Kainga had been engaged to help address the issues that were slowly dividing the party. “Things have not been okay with him here. Some people in the structures are complaining that he has neglected them and are threatening to decampaign him in the next elections because they are saying he is too busy when he promised to be there for them,†the official said. “It had to take the provincial chairman (Stephen Kainga) to address the issue, it seems he could not see some of us for reasons we don’t know, so he engaged the Provincial Chairman and we had a meeting with him here.†When contacted, Copperbelt Provincial Chairman Stephen Kainga said the matter had been concluded and there was nothing else to discuss. “We sat down and that issue was closed, everything is okay in the Constituency. The structures are intact, that is all I can say,†Kainga said Kainga said the PF was firmly in charge of Copperbelt Province and structures in various constituencies were being strengthened.

The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) on Saturday were left shocked after the network system went down during the open day organised for Copperbelt Motorists which was held at Mukuba Mall in Kitwe. Like the case has been in the past, Motorists have complained and asked RTSA to improve on service delivery but Saturday was true reflection of challenges the institution is grappling with. RTSA had invited motorists through a press statement that various services which included issuance of road service licence, issuance of drivers’ licence, motor vehicle examination both physical and automated, road safety education, driver testing (oral and practical) for provisional driver’s license, payment of road tax and payment for certificate of fitness. However, the case was different as a few motorists turned up and those needed services that required network were disappointed that RTSA had no better explanation on the poor services being rendered to its clients. “We came so that our issues are resolved because the Kitwe Office has failed us in so many ways and when he heard that officers would be here (KITWE) it was an opportunity to understand why they are failing us, but alas we are being told to visit the same station because the system is down, so we left wondering if this institution is serious†one of the motorists stated “Personally I have been going to the same RTSA Station and every time I am told the system is down, so then what is this ICT they are talking about if they can’t offer us the services? “Look at the people that are here obviously each one of them has complaint or needs to be attended to but with the system down I guess it’s business as usual†he added. They complained that most of them had been asked to go back and come later in the day as the system would have returned to normal. RTSA Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko was at pains to explain why the system has been down. “It is a challenge; yes, but we are trying to address it. We want to migrate to Zamtel and other and we know how much it affects people,” Soko said. The post RTSA In Tech Glitch appeared first on Zambia Reports.
