Socialist Party parliamentary candidate Mangango constituency, Comrade Janet Sombo Chingumbe was born in Mangango. She attended Mangango Primary School and Holy-Cross Girls’ Secondary School before going on to study catering at Hushnolding School in Denmark and theology at Rhema Bible College, where she gained a ministerial training major. She is also a qualified pre-school teacher.
Chingumbe says she joined the Socialist Party because of its values; equity, humility, honesty and solidarity.
“The three pressing issues in my community are a lack of water and sanitation, the poor road network and the distance to health centres,” she said.
“My message to my constituency that we can change the situation if we work together.”
Once elected, Chingumbe hopes to help her community by using constituency development funds appropriately, lobby through NGOs, and get local Zambians to set up various industries in the Mangango area to create jobs.
