The Citizens Forum in Mungwi District has demanded the immediate resignation of Malole Member of Parliament, Emmanuel Munaile, accusing him of failing to deliver on his election promises to the electorate.

Forum District Secretary Baitwell Mfula made the demand in a press statement availed to ZANIS in Kasama today.

Mr. Mfula claimed that there have been numerous complaints from Mungwi residents over the alleged non-performance of Mr. Munaile in his constituency.

He said Mr. Munaile would do better by emulating Kasama Central MP Saviour Chishimba, who resigned voluntarily from his position.

Mr. Mfula charged that Mr. Munaile, who is also Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) vice-president, had allegedly failed to spearhead development in his constituency, resulting in under development of the area.

Mr. Mfula said it is only in order for the MP to step down and allow focused individuals to contest the Malole seat, so that the electorate could see meaningful development in Malole Constituency.

He warned that if Mr. Munaile does not resign voluntarily, the people of Malole would have no choice but to use other means to have him forced out of office, adding that people were fed-up of empty promises from the area MP.

Mr. Mfula explained that Mungwi residents wanted to see infrastructure development take root as the District has lagged behind in terms of development despite attaining district status over 10 years ago.

He further advised Mr. Munaile to stop attacking innocent people who are critical of his poor performance as MP.

Mr. Mfula charged that there is nothing wrong in other people expressing interest in taking over from Mr. Munaile if they feel capable of delivering to the expectations of the local people.

By press time, efforts to get a comment from Mr. Munaile in Lusaka, failed.
