Kabwe Mayor Richard Bango has ordered the municipality to close down the Orange Alliance central province office because it is located near Kasanda market in Kabwe.
The office was opened by Alliance leader Miles Sampa on Wednesday and the following day Bango, a former cleaner and messenger in the Zambia Railways closed it down.
But alliance general secretary Eric Chanda says the former cleaner’s action was illegal and directed his members to defy it.
Chanda doubted the capacity of Bango whom he described as less informed and exposed.
The central province leadership has described the Mayor’s action as fear of the alliance’s impact on the PF.
