SENIOR Chieftainess Nkomeshya Mukamambo II of the Soli people says Zambia is seeing the benefits of voting for President Michael Sata.

And chieftainess Nkomeshya says she will address concerns from the Bemba Royal Establishment once President Sata gives her a go-ahead.

During a function to celebrate her election as House of Chiefs chairperson organised by her subjects on Saturday,
chieftainess Nkomeshya said President Sata needed to be supported in his resolve and commitment to developing the country.

"If these problems are coming to you, what should stop us from saying thank you to the government of the day? For us, we are beneficiaries. They (PF) are fulfilling their campaign promises. We are seeing the fulfillment. I am only praising the government of the day for what they are doing. When I say this, I am not doing politics. When the government of the day is doing well, we will praise them. When they are doing bad, we will condemn them on behalf of the people," said chieftainess Nkomeshya.

"We need to pray for the government because they need our support when they go out sourcing resources to develop Zambia. For you in Lusaka Province, you need to pray for the government. For us in Lusaka, we are seeing the benefits of the government of the day," she said.

Chieftainess Nkomeshya said the construction of the Leopards Hill Road connecting Chiawa, construction of Palabana and Chalimbana universities and the construction of Chalimbana Road were sign of government's commitment to developing the country.

She said: "Is this not what we were crying for? We cried for that."
On Bemba counsellors' insistence that Henry Sosala was still Senior Chief Mwamba after President Michael Sata degazetted him, chieftainess Nkomeshya, who is House of Chiefs chairperson, said she had followed keenly what was happening in the Bemba kingdom.

"I have heard the hot issues in Northern Province. I am quiet and listening to what is being said. I am waiting for the President to officially open the House of Chiefs. When that's done, I will join the battle. As chairperson, I want to know what's happening. For now it's patience; I am waiting. Very soon, God will show me the way. Don't accuse me of abandoning you. I will be required to be out in all provinces," said chieftainess Nkomeshya.
