UPND to sue Kabwe council over ‘Kapatagate’ land scandal

The opposition UPND vowed to take legal action against the Kabwe Municipal council for breach of procedure in land allocation where Tourism minister Jean Kapata, Mother and Child health minister Emerine Kabanshi and other PF politicians and senior civil servants awarded themselves plots in Kabwe.
Central Province youth chairman Milner Mwanakampwe said the action by the council to firslyt share the land and then advertise and collect application fees from citizens amounted to day light robbery. Mwanakampwe said if the kleptomaniac PF council cannot reverse the decision, then the minister of local government Emmanuel Chenda must prevail on the matter to protect citizens.
Mwanakampwe has also called on the Anti-Corruption Commission to pounce on the council after the media expose last week which brought out a list of 13 politicians and civil servants who had been allocated land in Mukuyu residential area and later advertised the same land to citizens in the Times of Zambia edition of 1st April 2014. He said in as much as the advertisement was made on fools’ day, Zambians were not fools and have made up their minds to kick out the corrupt regime.
The 13 corrupt officials who have been dubbed as the ’13 disciples of corruption’ are ministers Emerine and Jean Kapata, central province permanent secretary Edwidge Mutale and her deputy Ronald Sinyangwe, Sydney Mushanga and James Kapyanga, PF useless MPs for Bwacha and Kabwe central respectively, Kabwe district commissioner Patrick Chishala and Provincial local government officer Alfred Nyambose.

Other disciples are Kabwe Municipal Council director of administration Rabecca Chirwa, Charles Ufwenuka of Ministry of lands, Wina Munamoonga of Electoral Commission of Zambia, out -going Mayor Moses Mwansa and former Petauke council secretary Boyd Mboyi, who has been bonking and fathered a child with Director Development planning ka Naomi Sakala.
Meanwhile, the civic centre has been jammed with people who have come to buy forms for plots, but the poor citizens have just given themselves to be swindled as the land has already been shared by the 13 disciples and other hidden officials.
