MEMBERS of St Pius The Tenth Parish in Chililabombwe on the Copperbelt are likely to experience sore fingers from counting hundreds of Kwachas donated by PF secretary general Davies Mwila and his delegation this morning.
Mwila and team donated K321,700 as they attended mass – the funds are meant to help complete the construction of a three-storey school building within the church premises.
Mwila who led party officials this morning gifted the church with a whooping K100,000 and promised to deliver another K100,000 tomorrow.

Not to be left out on the list of those who reap blessings as a result of giving, Musukwa also gifted the church with K10,000 cash, 500 bags of cement valued at K70,000 and pledged to buy the church a bus while Chililabombwe aspiring mayoral candidate Trudy Ng’ambi gave K3000.
Chililabombwe District Commissioner Roy Ngosa gave K4000.
Lupele Kasumbalesa councilor Kangwa Nsofwa gave K3000 Vinkumbu gave K5000 and Joyce Kapundwe K1000 with K700 coming from Lydia Chunda Mpepo.
