While appreciating the internet provider for the donation, Mwenefumbo asked other companies in the country to emulate what Sky Band has done. "You know the country have numbers of roadblocks so for the company to select the roadblock of my area it is not a joke," said Mwenefumbo. He said the new roadblock will tighten the security than before. Meanwhile, Sky Band has promised more development to the area.
