THE United Party for National Development (UPND) in Livingstone has suspended its constituency chairperson, Milford Maambo, for his alleged involvement in illegal land allocation.

But Mr Maambo, who is Livingstone City Council Mayor and Simoonga Ward Councillor, could not be reached for a comment while a full council meeting was expected to sit yesterday to deliberate on the matter.

UPND Livingstone district chairperson Michael Kangai said Mr Maambo had been suspended as constituency chairperson with immediate effect.

In his letter to Mr Maambo, Mr Kangai said the mayor was suspended until the allegations levelled against him were cleared.

“With regards to allegations leveled against you at Livingstone City Council, the UPND in Livingstone district has resolved to suspend you from your position as a Livingstone constituency chairman with immediate effect.

“During the period of this suspension you will cease to perform any duties of a constituency chairperson until you are cleared,” Mr Kangai said.

The full council was yesterday expected to look at the allegations and chat the way forward.

    • That’s the way to go. All corrupt elements should be flushed out. UPND has shown transparency a few months before they take power. Clear signs of a great government in waiting.

  1. Show me one councilor who is not involved in land allocation deals. Very few are clean. Good move by UPND though. Basically

  2. Illegal land allocations is all these good for nothing Zambian councillors are good at. When it comes to service delivery they are worse than cow dung. Residential areas are heaving under the weight of garbage and squalor under the watch of the mayors and the councillors. When are the councillors going to be held accountable? Thumbs up to UPND for suspending the mayor.

  3. VERY GOOD MOVE INDEED! CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU UPND. NOT THIS EDGAR LUNGU WHO IS BUSY SHIELDING THE CORRUPT MANAGING DIRECTOR OF ZESCO VICTOR MUNDENDE. THAT BOY MUNDENDE IS HIGHLY CORRUPT AND ABUSIVE! I SAW IT WITH MY OWN EYES!

  4. UPND you have taken a good step for suspending the mayor.
    But mr mayor want happened for you to be involved in such activities, i have always known you to be a man with good morals and i know you have a good explanation for this. We would like to hear your comment on this.
