President Sata Saturday afternoon said he was disappointed that residents of Mansa ignored a public rally he addressed.
Sata was speaking at Kaole Stadium in Mansa where he held a public rally to thank the people of Mansa for voting for the PF MP in the November 22 by elections following the death of Kennedy Sakeni who was the area member of parliament on the PF ticket at the time of his death.
Sata who however thanked the people of Mansa Central for voting for the PF candidate said he was disappointed by the poor attendance of the public meeting.
He told the small crowd that remembered the days prior to the November 2011 elections when throngs of people trooped to his meetings and the stadium was being filled to capacity.
President Sata earlier visited the Luapula University construction site and unveiled a stone before featuring on Radio Yangeni where he made more promises.
And Education Minister John Phiri promised that he will next March take Sata to Luapula for the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of Luapula University which has been allocated a budget of K13million.
