The Patriotic Front (PF) government says it has very much recognised Western Province through the appointment of Inonge Wina as Vice President.
Minister of Higher Education, Michael Kaingu, said this yesterday at Mongu Community Hall in Western Province when he welcomed 650 defectors from various opposition parties to the Patriotic Front.
Dr Kaingu said people should rally behind a dedicated leader like his President Edgar Lungu who is as hard working as can be seen by the number of projects and developmental programmes being implemented in Western Province.
And speaking at the same function a United Party For National Development (UPND) defector said the ruling party had done a lot for the province, adding that there is no reason to continue being in the opposition.
Dr Kaingu is expected to tour Senanga, Sioma, Shangombo and Mwandi districts during his nine days visit to Western Province.
