“We are committed to see to it that all planned projects kick start so that when we come here again to renew our mandate we will be able to point at something,” Mr Yaluma said.
He told PF officials drawn from all the 13 wards in the constituency at the District Conference at Chimba Basic School organised to elect district and constituency officials at on Saturday.
Mr Yaluma who attended the conference said his priority in the constituency was road infrastructure link farmers areas to major markets.
He said most of the roads would be worked on before the general elections next year and that critics of the PF Government would have nothing to criticise.

Mr Yaluma said the PF had come to develop the country and restore people dignity.
