Solwezi November 5 2014ZANIS—Chief Mumena of the Kaonde speaking people of Solwezi has paid glowing tribute to late President Michael Sata for spearheading developmental projects.

He said the appointment of chiefs to serve on boards on various parastatal companies was also a clear indication of President Sata’s recognition that traditional leadership is an integral part to national development.
