Late Anderson Mazoka’s wife, Mutinta says she is happy with the pro-activeness of the ruling Patriotic Front -PF government.

Mutinta who is the UPND’s Member of Parliament for Pemba constituency said the quick response by PF government when informed about the impending famine and poor bridges in her constituency is impressive.

She says unlike the previous government of MMD, PF was able to respond to calls even to areas that were controlled by the opposition.

The Pemba MP whose husband is the founder and First president of UPND explained that after visiting the Vice President’s office to explain the situation in Pemba, she was happy that the Deputy Minister in that office had to quickly respond by visiting her constituency.

And Harry Kalaba the Deputy Minister in the Office of the Vice president who toured Pemba constituency assured that government will within this year replace the two temporal make-shift bridges with the permanent ones that will safeguard people’s lives.

Kalaba said the PF government will not allow a situation where the villagers have to make their own bridges when government is there. He also promised to deliver rations to people that may experience food shortages due to poor yield.

The Deputy Minister together with Mrs. Mazoka toured Pemba constituency the past week. Pemba is one of the new districts created by President Michael Sata.
