Chief Kashiba happy with Govt

Chief Kashiba of the Lunda people in Mwense district of Luapula province will mobilize his people to vote for President Rupiah Banda in the forth coming elections.

This due to the success the MMD government has scored especially in the agricultural sector.

The there have been major improvements in the agricultural sector in the last five years leading to concurrent bumper harvests.

Chief Kashiba told Agriculture and Cooperatives Deputy Minister Allan Mbewe that the current current government's agricultural policies have proved successful.

The Deputy Minister had paid a courtesy call at Chief Kashiba’s palace over the weekend.

According to the traditional leader, his chiefdom has experienced increased crop yields over the years resulting in most of his subjects being food secure.

Most of the people have now realized that their livelihoods can only be improved through agriculture.

The Farmer Input Support Programme (FISP), which the government has been implementing in the last few years, has turned the fortunes of the people of Kashiba.

This is why Chief Kashiba is now mobilising his people to vote for President Rupiah Banda in the forth coming elections.

The Deputy Minister meanwhile says Luapula and Northern Provinces will in the next five to 10 years surpass the other provinces in the country in terms of agriculture because of favourable weather and climatic conditions.

The two provinces are endowed with good soils, reliable water sources and good weather conditions necessary for agricultural production.

Agricultural production trends in Northern and Luapula provinces have shown a steady increase over the last few years.

Government is encouraging small scale farmers in the area to work hard as there is no any other way in which they can improve their livelihoods without engaging themselves seriously in agriculture.
