Lusaka Mayor Councilor Mulenga Sata has scooped the position of president of the Local Government Association of Zambia (LGAZ) in a tightly contested elections held in Solwezi today.

Councilor Sata was challenged to the top position in the Local Government Association by UPND and former Mayor for Livingstone City Council Councillor Aggrey Njekwa.
Councillor Sata got 47 votes while Councillor Njenkwa accrued 36 votes.

Ndola Mayor Samuel Munthali despite withdrawing his candidature in the race polled seven votes.

Meanwhile, Mr Sata has called for sustainable development in local authority’s country wide through the generation of revenue from the available economic activities present in the area of operation.

“Those in Chipata can collect bicycle levy, those in Mazabuka can collect sugar cane levy and those in Chongwe, if you want, you can collect plane levy from the upcoming airport,” he said. He said there was need for local Government to stop competing but be seen as partners in the administration of this country.

Former association president, Daniel Chisenga congratulated the new executive of the association and said that there was need to promote sustainable development in local authorities.

Mr Chisenge called on Mr Sata and his members to continue the advocacy on improved condition of service for councillors.

LGAZ chairperson John Kabungo urged the new executive to accommodate all those that had lost the election and promote gender equality.

“There are so much gender imbalances in the LGAZ and we are worried about it. I am urging all of you councilors to encourage female members to take interesting in mayoral ship so that they can come here and be part of us,” he said.

Others elected were Zakiel Mbao as honoury treasurer for the association. Francis Bwalya, Bellard Makwemba, Jailosi Phiri and Peter Kikatula went through unopposed as chapter vice Presidents for Northern, Southern, Eastern and North-Western Provinces.

Maybin Kalambwe for Central and Moses Chongo for Luapula Province also went through unopposed while Jordan Mwansa was elected vice President for Copperbelt after beating two other contenders and Bright Tombi Tombi is the vice President for Western Province.

    • akalijo jealous yanu nansoni mulibe muzafa nayo ba UPND Conglatulations Mulenga keep up your dad is really a gun destroying the undeveloped zambia.

    • I start to like Mulenga Sata, the only difference between the 2 in that Mulenga is a gentleman, and has few thugs around him. Don’t think he accept any of the 7 guns on his father’s will.

    • I apologize for congratulating a son-of-
      Did I even say he was a gentleman, a person I have drunk with before, such a pompus son-of-.
      What was in my mind?

    • Congratulations mr. sata. Buti ka MO kamoneka apa, everywhere where you contest in an election, the events are as follows:
      1. Announcement of candidature
      2. people withdraw their candidature against you
      3. Win elections.
      Again congratulations, but remember we are in the age of aquarius now, people are awakening at a faster rate and no one can stop it. You can f00l a few or a lot for now, but it wont be long before such tricks will fail to hold. remember Lemuria!!!

    • WAS SELLING DOGS STEALING MONEY LIKE RB AND HIS SONS? BREEDING AND SELLING DOG IS LUCRATIVE BUSINESS. I THINK MULENGA SATA IS VERY INDUSTRIOUS AND A GREAT THINKER. I HOPE HIS BUSINESS HAS CONTINUED BECAUSE MORE DOGS WILL BE NEEDED WITH MUSHROOMING BEAUTIFUL RESIDENTIAL AREAS. THIS WILL MEAN MORE SECURITY DOGS NEEDED FOR MORE SECURITYCOMPANIES.

    • SELLING DOGS DOES NOT STOP SOMEONE TO STAND FOR POSTION THAT WAS ALSO A WAY OF EARNING A LEAVING WHY DO SOME OF THE PEOPLE HAVE SO MACH HATE ON OTHERS TALK OF PROGRESS NOT INSULTS MY DEAR COUNTRYMEN AND WOMEN FOR BETTER ZAMBIA.

  1. Congratulations, work has just began and it is time to work, work and work to prove yo critics wrong. Please bring back crope levy and other levies for councils to be self sustainable. U really know the problems councils are facing. Go Go and go mulenga the president

    • What’s crope levy? Or perhaps you meant “grope” levy since I’m pretty sure the councils will end up groping the money for their own satisfaction. Go-go tax and waste! Is that the winning platform you want Mulenga to stand on?

      Hmmmmm….. let’s see: dog levy, milk levy, cart levy, bread levy, bag levy, mango levy, chicken levy, walking levy, levy levy, and chitenge levy (unless of course PF green!). Probably they should just bring back Hut Tax and be done with it, right?

  2. With such below par thinking, how can you develop? Ati, Council in Chongwe should collect plane levy, in Mazabuka collect Sugarcane levy, in Chipata bicycle levy… what kind of thinking is this??? He talks about sustainable development in councils!! He does not even understand what sustainable development is… The country cannot move forward.

  3. Mulenga sata is plain dull!!!! is that the only tthing he can say after winning ati…you can collect sugar can levy and plane levy…..iye. honestly couldnt the man outline what he will be doing for the councils ?? the country is so dirty, it looks like people who work for the council are brain dead…they have no idea who to solve problems

  4. All those levies will make their way to the spawn of Satan’s campaign to take over from the ailing father who has disappeared from view whilst the dull Zambians are just ndwii! Anyway, I guess I should celebrate this development as it will inevitably lead to an implosion within panga family involving Satan’s former dog inseminator spawn, the poisoned red lipped midget Kabipa and no neck foul faced and foul mouthed half man half baby hippo Chimbwili – watch this space!

    • Metals are metals!!!!

      It’s amazing how people hate the Sata name…especially diaspora community. For some it’s a hobby.

      The fight is certainly between Mulenga and Kabimba.

    • it was a sham…but we thank the UPND candidate for contesting…at least he added A BIT credibility to it all

  5. But this Mulenga looks calm and gentle. We want to see works. You have taken top Lusaka district, top Lusaka city council and now top local authority association. Your name is ‘elite’. Do not just do the winnings – lets see action or else.

    Namufukatila ifingi shikulu

  6. Congrates ba Mulenga Sata. We know King Cobra has a few kids all over But you have proven yourself to be a modest leader. To those who dont like when others excell, you will not make it in life with such atitude. Make a name for yourself and we will appluade you.

  7. What is wrong with selling dogs please, did you want Mulenga Sata to just sit idle and do nothing. Some of you mukafwa na jealous and if anything the young man should be congratulated for his achievements so far, from selling dogs to Lusaka mayor, Lusaka District chairman and now President of the Local Government association.

    • Wat are you congratulating this man for. wait and see wat he will do with all those positions. even polygamous men have problems to care all the women they marry. The man is trying to use his fathers’ name. soon or later the truth will come out.Fluffy seller

  8. I just don’t get it why a sitting councillor has to stand for this position? What are they objectives of this organisation. …I highly doubt it if this man even understands what the definition of sustainability is.

  9. CONGRATS MR SATA. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT. IT IS NOT WRONG FOR YOU TO FOLLOW “SOME” OF THE STEPS OF YOUR FATHER. OF COURSE YOU WILL NOT PLEASE EVERYONE. YOU ALSO HAVE ENEMIES. SOME ARE YOUR FATHERS ENEMIES WHO HAVE TURNED ON TO YOU. INDEED EVEN THE PRESIDENCE OF THE NATION SHOULD NOT BE THE LIMIT. KEEP CLIMBING SLOWLY.

    SOME PEOPLE ARE SO ACCUSTOMED TO FAILING SUCH THAT EVEN A DOG SELLER WILL BEAT THEM AT THE POLLS (2016) DESPITE THE ECONOMICS QUALIFICATION THEY BRAG ABOUT DAY AND NIGHT. WATCH THIS SPACE..

  10. Humble beginings, like father like son. From a police officer to President and from dog seller to LGAZ President. Show them!

  11. Congrats Aggrey Njekwa. Where 2 serious contenders opt out for fear splitting votes Mulenga you have every reason to smile!

  12. Congrats Aggrey Njekwa. Where 2 serious contenders opt out for fear of splitting votes for Mulenga you have every reason to smile!

  13. I think it would help if you told us about Mulenga Sata’s educational back ground as well not just his dog selling business (hobby?). I used to sell mishanga when I was a kid. Does that overshadow all my professional qualifications and experience? You would think you are reading ZWD!

  14. What is wrong with Mulenga winning the LGAZ seat? I really don’t understand. Please respect other people’s decisions (those who voted for him) and give Mulenga a chance to work first then you can criticise later. He is a Zambian, with every right to participate in the civic organisation of his community. I think we are jumping the gun by criticising him even before we have seen what he can do. Kanofye nganimwebo?
