Like we exposed a few days ago, Kabwe municipal council has admitted to having corruptly sold the Coronation park to Unity Distributors of Ndola who will now build some trading shops.
Following the watchdog expose, Council spokesperson Annie Mumba has been bombarded with questions from media houses who wanted to verify the story and yesterday she admitted that a 90 year lease has been entered into with the company.
Mumba however did not disclose how much the council has gotten out of the lease and when the developer is expected to erect the structures. The park transaction was engineered by MPs James Kapyanga and Sydney Mushanga and Mayor Richard Mangani Bango.
Like President Edgar Lungu’s bogus Mulungushi Textiles investor Mohammed Enterprises Tanzania Limited (METL), Unity distributors have no experience in real estate but are mere Zambians of Asian origin with trading outlets and running some wholesale shops. At one time they were distributors of Colgate Palmolive products.
