Kabwe council faces dissolution

Central province local government officer Alfred Nyambose has given local government minister Forie Tembo a report recommending the dissolution of the Kabwe Municipla council.

But the PF central Committee is said to be planning to block the dissolution of the Kabwe council which is accused of land scandals.

Meanwhile, the local government service commission has been instructed to transfer officers suspected of leaking details of massive illegal land allocation to the media and to the ministry of local government and housing.
The council has been rocked by rampant illegal land administration scandals with two directors appearing in court and another councillor arrested for illegal land allocation.

Tembo after his last fact finding visit on 8th and 9th April, told journalists that management must report all errant councillors to the police but Town Clerk Mukamambo Mbaimbai said the minister has to put the directive in writing for him to execute it.
Mayor Moses Mwansa directed the Town clerk to sign 82 letters of offer for plots but management refused to execute the order and this annoyed Mwansa who together with other councillors started plotting against the Town clerk and his chief officers. The councillors walked out of a full council meeting on 25th March and with backing of the PF central committee, engineered the transfer of Public health director Greenford Sikazwe. Mbaimbai and director of planning Vernacio Tembo are the other officers threatened with transfers. The trio are accused of having exposed the councillors’ dubious activities.
According to the report tabled by Nyambose and the report submitted by the council management, the councillors were found wanting, hence the recommendation for dissolution. “By boycotting the first full council meeting for the year, 2013 the councillors have sabotaged the planning of the ministry and after the overwhelming evidence provided by management, it is hereby recommednded that the council, in full be dissolved and any erring officers be prosecuted,” read the report submitted to the local government ministry today.Central province local government officer (PLGO)  Alfred Nyambose has today tabled to local government deputy minister Forie Tembo a report recommending for the dissolution of the land scandal rocked Kabwe municipal council  but the PF central committee is determined to block this dissolution and the local government service commission has been instructed to transfer some chief officers accused of leaking details about massive illegal land allocation to the media and to the ministry of local government and housing.
