Indisciplined Kabwe District Commissioner Patrick Chishala has been summoned to appear before the full Kabwe Municipal council for contempt.
Chishala recently made disparaging remarks against the council after the city fathers’ demand of K15,000 and K10,000 for High and medium cost plots respectively in the newly created Mukuyu residential area.
The DC who openly confessed to stealing offering from a UCZ church and was once arrested by police for stealing groceries from Shoprite supermarket accused the councilors of not being considerate when they came up with the figures and demanded for a reduction. He made the remarks on a local radio station, in a bid to boost his political ambitions as he prepares himself to contest the Kabwe central constituency seat in 2016.
A source from the municipality disclosed that the figures were a resolution of a full council meeting and it was contemptuous for Chishala to attack the resolution through the media. Chishala is however reported to have declined to appear before the councilors, calling them a bunch of functional illiterates. Until his appointment, the DC was a primary school teacher with a certificate in teaching.
Chishala, together with a well known PF thug of Tanzanian origin Saidi Chibwana have been scheming to oust James Kapyanga and Sydney Mushanga, the PF MPs for Kabwe central and Bwacha central constituency respectively so that they are adopted but their ambitions have become deem after the unceremonial dismissal of PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba whom ailing President Sata instantly reduced from hero to zero in August.
