    Michael Sata says he avoids taking international trips because he does not want to waste the country's meagre resources which can be channelled towards poverty alleviation for the benefit of the majority poor Zambians.

    Mr Sata has said that he did not want to undertake costly trips abroad because he wanted to minimise on expenditure so that money could be channeled to helping 'defeat' poverty for which the Zambian people elected him into office.

    Addressing a mammoth public rally at Chongwe grounds to drum up support for the PF candidate for the Chongwe parliamentary by-election scheduled for Monday, President Sata said he was an accountable leader who had rejected a number of recent foreign trips, including one to Australia and another to Malawi.

    The president said he could have spent a lot of money already had he been travelling indiscriminately because all his trips required a horde of security and other personnel accompanying him, all of whom were entitled to allowances. He said such expenses would be enough to build a hospital for the people of Zambia. President Sata said his first trip outside State House was only on Wednesday this week when he travelled to Magoye in the Southern Province.

    Mr Sata said he could not back-track on his position on expensive foreign trips, especially that he condemned and referred to his predecessor, Rupiah Banda, as a mobile president because of the numerous trips he undertook.

    This dude seems to be talking sense everytime he opens his mouth. It appears he is yet to be intoxicated by the absolute power that goes with african presidency. Let us wait and see whether he will maintain his current positions in the future.

    I belive in this planet JK AND HIS ASSOCIATES are the only people who dispute SATA'S stutus on presidents trips. We have been very unfortunate as a nation to have people in leadership who can't see beyond their NOSES
