A total of 500 bicycles donated by President Edgar Lungu to village headmen of Luwingu and Lupososhi Districts under the ECL empowerment programme have been delivered to the area.

Luwingu District Commissioner Patrick Chanda confirmed receipt of the consignment to ZNBC News in an interview.

Chanda said the bicycles will help ease mobility for traditional authorities in the two districts.

The DC has since thanked President Lungu for the gesture.

Chanda said the donation by the Head of State is confirmation of the ruling Patriotic Front -PF- pro-poor policies.

He said the bicycles will help headmen to quickly attend to challenges faced by the communities within their areas.

Chanda says the bicycles will immediately be distributed to the beneficiaries in Luwingu and Lupososhi Districts .
