My ministers sometimes don’t say the truth — Sata

PRESIDENT Michael Sata yesterday said that his ministers sometimes do not say the truth about the people’s suffering.

And President Sata cautioned the PF candidate in the Kapiri Mposhi by-election, Eddie Musonda, not to think that people who will vote for him are stupid.

Meanwhile, President Sata has split Kapiri Mposhi and created Ngabwe district in order to bring development and government administrative functions closer to the people.

During a courtesy call on chief Chipepo of the Lenje people of Central Province, President Sata, who was in Kapiri Mposhi to drum up support for Musonda in the April 23 polls, expressed shock that chief Chipepo was drinking dirty water because there was no borehole at his palace.

“If you want to know something, you have to be there, because my ministers sometimes don’t say the truth. Iyo Mr President fintu fyonse fili fye bwino no, Mr President everything is okay kanshi when in fact things are not good.
