WP deserves equal share of national development – Sata

PRESIDENT Michael Sata says the people of Western Province deserve an equal share of national development because they did not choose to be born in the region.

And President Sata refused to receive gifts from the PF provincial organizing committee in Lukulu West, saying he would only do so once he delivers development to the area.

President Sata said this when he addressed voters at Mitete and Muyondoti basic schools in Lukulu West Constituency ahead of the April 23 parliamentary by-election.

He told PF aspiring candidate Eileen Imbwae to show selfless leadership once elected MP.

“Madam Imbwae, have you seen these women and children here? Did they choose to be born here by you people? Did they apply that they should be suffering? Look, they have no transport, they have no electricity. The children don’t even have an idea how it feels to sleep on a mattress,” he said.
