President Michael Sata has created six more districts in Western and North-western Provinces.
President Sata named the new districts as Sikongo, Nalolo, Sioma, Mitete and Luampa in Western province and Manyinga in North-western province.
The President said this when he swore in Ministry of Labour and Social Security Permanent Secretary Trevor Kaunda and Muchinga Province Commissioner of Police Lemmy Kajoba at State House today.
President Sata has urged newly appointed Labour Permanent Secretary Trevor Kaunda to be sharp in the execution of his duties as issues to do with labour were very porous in the country.
He lamented that some Italians at a company which he did not name but based in Ndola were not paying Zambian workers well.
And President Sata directed Minister of Sports Chishimba Kambwili to ensure that a stadium is constructed in Western province.
He also called for the construction of a new university at Namushakende in Western Province and proposed that this institution of higher learning should be named King Lewanika University.
