Luangeni area Member of Parliament, Charles Zulu, has expressed disappointment with the recent attacks on him from some area members of parliament who are questioning why government has been taking most of the developmental projects to Luangeni.
Speaking to Breeze News, Mr. Zulu says that the claims by some MPs that he is hijacking and directing some projects to Luangeni constituency is unfortunate and not true.
Mr. Zulu says the recent attacks during the full council meeting concerning projects of drilling 16 boreholes and electrification in Luangeni is unfortunate because such projects are being done in other constituencies.
He explained that there is nothing wrong if an MP lobbies for his or her constituency because that is what is expected of a member of parliament.
Mr. Zulu explained that the 1.2 billion Kwacha for the drilling of 16 boreholes in Luangeni was sourced from the Ministry of Local Government and Housing and not his ministry.
Mr. Zulu is deputy minister in the Ministry of Mines, Energy and Water Development.
Chipangali Area Member of Parliament, Vincent Mwale is reported to have complained on why REA, the Rural Electrification Authority are only carrying out the electrification project in Luangeni living out other areas.
