There was confusion at the Choma Municipal Council offices this morning when Patriotic Front( PF) senior officials positioned themselves at the civic centre to block newly appointed Town Clerk Mwiiya Mwiiya from reporting for work.
The PF officials lead by District Vice Chairman Kebby Mbewe rushed to the civic centre after word went round that Mr Mwiiya who is a Monze Council Secretary had arrived in Choma to take over from the incumbent Town Clerk Oliver Muuka.
The PF officials threatened to lock the Town clerk‘s office if at all Mr Mwiiya showed up.
Yesterday the PF leadership vowed not to allow the Local Government Service Commissioner Transfer current Town clerk Oliver Muuka out of the district due to what they termed as unfair treatment.
By 11.00 hours the PF officials were still maintaining vigil at the civic centre while Mr Mwiiya was nowhere to be seen.
The PF has urged the Local Government Service Commissioner to resist being used by disgruntled former council senior officials who want to settle personal scores with the current Town clerk Oliver Muuka.
By press time, Mr Muuka was still in his office while PF officials maintained their presence.
