Newly appointed Chief Mporokoso of the Bemba speaking people of Mporokoso district has pledged to work closely with the government in its efforts to improve the well being of the people.
Chief Mporokoso said this when Northern Province Permanent Secretary Mwalimu Simfukwe called on him at his palace on.
The Chief said he was happy with the warm reception he has continued to receive from Government officials since he arrived from Luwingu.
He said this has greatly motivated him to work closely with the Government in uplifting the living standards of people in the district.
Chief Mporokoso has since appealed to the Provincial Administration to support the district in addressing the many challenges it faces.
He singled out water as one of the major issues which required the intervention of the provincial administration.
The traditional leader also wondered why Zesco cannot electrify glasswhen this was happening in other areas.
He said his subjects staying in glass thatched houses were eager to have electricity in their homes.
And Northern Province Permanent Secretary Mwalimu Simfukwe has assured the Chief that Government will seriously look into his concerns.
Mr. Simfukwe said his office was closely working with District officials to ensure that the lives of the people in the district are improved.
The PS was accompanied by Mporokoso Member of Parliament Maynard Misapa and the District Commissioner Dominic Musonda.
