BRE welcomes development in Western Province

THE Barotse Royal Establishment says President Michael Sata is fulfilling his campaign promises.

Meanwhile, scores of Mongu residents yesterday cheered as President Sata when he took the driver’s seat to operate a front-end loader during the groundbreaking ceremony for construction of the 20, 000 capacity Mongu Stadium project.

During the commissioning of Shangombo district hospital constructed by Tomorrow Investments, Litunga Lubosi Imwiko who was represented by acting Ngambela Lifuna Siisi said the royal establishment would support President Sata’s developmental projects.

He said the groundbreaking of Mongu Stadium and the hospital was the beginning of change and development in Western Province.

“If the Litunga wasn’t happy with this kind of development, the royal establishment wouldn’t be represented here. This is what we stand for here in Western Province. The Litunga says what is happening here is good and needs to be supported by all.
