Mambwe and Lungu Chiefs in Mbala District have disowned former area Member of Parliament, Mbita Chitala.
The traditional leaders have also disassociated themselves from Mr Chitala’s claims that they support his political ambitions under the Patriotic Front-PF.
Speaking on behalf of the Mambwe and Lungu traditional leaders, Chief Zombe described Dr Chitala as a big late down who neglected to develop Mbala when he served in government.
Chief Zombe says he is annoyed with Dr Chitala to the extent that he had to chase him from the palace during his recent visit.
He said Dr Chitala has no credibility in the eyes of the local people whom he abandoned during his service in the government.
