” Yes I can confirm that an unfortunate excercise to alleniate the people of Southern province has began. It will see District Information Officers around the country interview Chiefs around the country and focus on the negative side. To potray that Tongas are subbotaging the PF government’s efforts to develop the country. It is being financed directly by the OP and is being overseen by Hon Freedom Sikazwe and PS Christa Kalulu” the source said.
