The traditional leader has pledged to continuously engage government on various issues as the two have a common agenda of uplifting the lives of the people in communities.

“Minister of Labour and Security, Brendah Tambatamba, should constantly engage workers in the province and inspect companies that are abrogating labour laws,” he said.

Speaking when Ms. Tambatamba paid a courtesy call on him on Friday in Chipata, Chief Mpezeni said government must intensify inspections in all sectors of the economy.

Tambatamba said her Ministry will focus on promoting human resource capital to enhance the transformational and job creation agenda for economic development of the country.
