Sata has patience for the poor – Munkombwe

PRESIDENT Michael Sata is a person full of humility, says newly-appointed Southern Province minister Daniel Munkombwe.

And Sylvia Masebo says President Sata is in his best health and works harder than all ministers.

In an interview, Munkombwe said President Sata had always cared for those who were suffering, even before he was elected president.

“”that is what makes him peculiar, unlike others who have big lust to get into State House,” Munkombwe said.

Munkombwe, a former deputy minister in the office of the vice-president under the MMD administration who has been nominated as member of parliament and due to be sworn in as Southern Province minister, said President Sata could best be described as a “patient person for the poor”.

“I’ll say much about President Sata after I assume office (a Southern Province minister) but suffice to say that he has always been full of humility; that is his pattern of leadership,” Munkombwe said.
