Shangombo District Commissioner Masheke Kabayo says President Rupiah Banda deserves a five year mandate in office because he has fulfilled almost all the promises he made to the people of Zambia during his campaigns in 2008.
Mr. Kabayo said President Banda’s administration has in the past three years scored remarkable development in meeting the needs of its people most importantly those in rural areas.
He noted that Shangombo being the remotest district in the country has experienced fundamental economic and infrastructure development which is being felt by the common man in the outskirts of the district.
The DC pointed out that among other projects, the K1.8billion water reticulation programme has cheered the people as the district will be having safe and clean drinking piped water for the first time.
Mr. Kabayo said about 95% works of the water reticulation programme have been done adding that works are expected to be complete by the end of this month.
He said another project is the gravelling of the 80Km Kalongola –Sioma road which is being worked on by the Rural Roads Unit at the cost of K500million.
Mr. Kabayo has since commended government for it commitment in ensuring that development trickles down to all the parts of the country.
He also appealed to people in the district to ensure that they vote for President Banda in the 20th September general elections to enable him continue his development agenda for Zambia.
