PRESIDENT Sata will soon embark on a special tour of all the 10 provinces of Zambia in order to renew his development commitment to Zambians and update himself on on-going projects.
The planned ‘marathon’ tour has been announced by Minister of Defence Geoffrey Mwamba, who said President Sata wants Zambians to know that he has not forgotten about them as his Government continues to implement projects such as roads, universities and stadiums country-wide as per election promise.
Mr Mwamba was speaking after mass at Saint John’s Cathedral Catholic Church in Kasama over the weekend.
Mr Mwamba, who is Kasama Central Member of Parliament (MP), said President Sata’s administration is grateful for the patience and support Zambians have demonstrated towards Government.
The minister said President Sata has had engagements to ensure the Patriotic Front administration positions itself to effectively develop the country.
“President Sata has a duty to preside over the affairs of the country, so when you see me it means he has sent me to see you on his behalf.
“President Sata has not forsaken you and this is why you see me visiting frequently to explain what Government is doing and to listen to your needs, which I also present in Lusaka as your MP,” Mr Mwamba said.
Mwamba did not say where Sata is currently. Sata is believed to going through heavy medications at the same hospital he was in London six weeks ago.
Wynter Kabimba confirmed that Sata is in London on ‘private’ business.
