CHAMA district commissioner Josphat Lombe says the government recognises the important role that traditional leaders play in national development.

Speaking when he handed over a vehicle to Senior Chief Kambombo of the Senga people of Chama on Wednesday, Lombe said the government would always partner with chiefs in the implementation of its programmes.

He said the government would continue providing necessary facilities to enable chiefs to continue providing good leadership to their subjects.

"President Michael Sata has instructed us to work hand in hand with traditional leaders in implementing government developments because traditional leaders are anchors of development," Lombe said.

He said the government was working on several roads in the area such as the Chama-Matumbo road that was not worked on in the past.

He said senior chief Kambombo thanked President for sticking to his promises of bringing development to the district.

Lombe said that the chief was grateful to the government for development projects in the area.
He said the chief pledged to continue working with the government in fostering development in the country.
