MY life belongs to God, says President Michael Sata.

And President says the fight against corruption and illicit financial flows was top priority for his government as it diverted resources that created jobs.

Meanwhile, President Sata told workers that salary increments and hard work should go hand in hand.

Addressing workers and other citizens during this year’s International Labour Day celebrations at the Freedom Statue in Lusaka yesterday themed ‘Transforming the economy through job creation, labour law reform, better conditions of service and improved work culture’, President Sata said MMD leader Nevers Mumba and his UPND counterpart Hakainde Hichilema stayed away from the event because they had been spreading rumours that he was ill.

“My life belongs to God” Even if I were to die today, there are some young PF leaders who are ready to take over from me”,” he said. “Nevers Mumba is not here. Hakainde Hichilema is not here because they are ashamed.
