SOUTH COUNCILORS WARNED AGAINST ILLEGAL LAND DEALS

The Southern Provincial Local Government Office has advised Councillors from Gwembe Town Council to resist the temptation of getting involved in illegal land issues as it could ruin their political careers.

Southern Provincial Local Government Officer Clayton Hamulyata says land is a very sensitive matter and mishandling it can result in serious disputes, unrest and also slows down development.

And Hamulyata is disappointed that majority of councils nationwide are entangled in serious land issues which has led to premature end of political careers of some councilors due to their involvement.

Addressing councilors during a reorientation meeting in Gwembe, Hamulyata, however, commended the Gwembe Town Council for being one of the few Councils in the Country whose delegated power to deal with land has never been revoked.

And Hamulyata has encouraged the Local Authority in Gwembe to continue working hard in opening up the District for development.

Gwembe Town Council Secretary Maliwa Muchuu says the reorientation on how Councilors are supposed to conduct themselves has come at the right time when decentralization is at its full peak.

He has urged Councillors to be equipped with information regarding decentralization because it is the major focus of the New Dawn Government.

Police Public Relations Officer, Rae Hamoonga, notes that subsequently, Zulu he travelled to Lusaka on 9th April 9 to meet with the purported buyers who he eventually met at Novera Shopping Mall opposite Heroes Stadium.

According to Zulu, he was approached by four individuals posing as Police Officers, driving a grey Toyota Axio with registration number CAA 790.

SOME traders at Mazabuka’s Plan 2000 market have expressed concern over a damaged Hand-pump that services the facility.

Florence Ngala tells a Zambian News agency that the Hand-pump has been out of use for over 6 months, causing difficulties for marketeers to access water.

Ngala notes that the Hand-pump served as the primary water source for most residents around the area, including marketeers, hence the need to work on.

Another trader, Pricar Malambo, says currently, many people who depend on the said hand-pump have turned to drawing water from Wells, which may pose a health risk.

Meaan, Plan 2000 Market Committee member, Bliston Chilala, says the Local Authority has made a Water-tank available to the facility, accessible at a fee.

Chilala has encouraged residents and Marketeers to consider using the Council’s water source as it would help generate funds to restore the Hand-pump.
