Lack of active leadership- reason for poverty in Zambezi


The leader of the official opposition, McHenry Venaani, says a lack of active leadership is partly the reason why Zambezi Region continues to be one of the poorest regions.

The president of the Popular Democratic Party (PDM) was speaking at a media briefing in Katima Mulilo on Thursday.

Venaani questioned why strides have not been made in the agricultural sector, particularly with regards to reviving Katima Farm.

Years of waiting for tender approvals, Venaani said, have contributed to a lack of food production and employment creation in the region.
