PATRIOTIC Front president Michael Sata has outlined his vision for Southern Province promising to make maximum use of the vast land and water resources in the region.
Addressing a mass rally in Choma yesterday at Kings Centre grounds, Mr Sata told the cheering crowds that the neglect of the region will end next month when the PF takes power from the corrupt and incompetent Rupiah Banda administration.
Mr Sata said given the excellent location of Choma, the town was best suited to be the provincial capital but the MMD government has failed to make good use of this unique geographical position.
The PF leader said the town had also produced illustrious men and women that contributed immensely to Zambia’s freedom struggle. He paid tribute to Mr Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula, one of Zambia’s best known pioneers of the freedom struggle.
The PF leader has been on a campaign trail in Southern Province since Wednesday.
This afternoon, the PF leader will be addressing another rally in Livingstone to spell the PF vision for the tourist carpital.
