Sata creates Pemba district in Southern Province
President Michael Sata has with immediate effect created Pemba as a new district in Southern Province.
President Sata has since directed Southern province Minister Obvious Mwaliteta to liase with all the stakeholders, political parties and traditional leaders in order for them to establish the centre where the district headquarters will be located.
President Sata has established over six (6) districts countrywide in line with his campaign promise to decentralise government operations for the effective and efficient delivery of services to the people.
This is contained in a statement released to the media by special assistant to the president for press and public relations George Chellah.
