THE Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) has launched investigations into the alleged illegal allocation of plots by some councillors and other officials at the Livingstone City Council, spokesperson Timothy Moono has said.
Speaking in an interview yesterday, Mr Moono said ACC was investigating claims that Livingstone City Council Mayor Milford Maambo and other officials allegedly allocated themselves 18 plots without following procedure.
“I can confirm that ACC is currently investigating the matter but we are yet to conclude on the same.
“No arrests have been made so far as we are still in the process of investigations,” Mr Moono said.
Recently, the Livingstone City Council (LCC) constituted a seven-man committee to investigate into the alleged illegal allocation of plots.
Mr Maambo, who is Simoonga Ward councillor, was subsequently placed on forced leave to pave way for investigations.
The seven-man committee of councillors comprises of Philemon Musonda from Zambezi Ward, Likando Liswani from Dambwa Central Ward, Stanley Ngoma from Dr Mubitana Ward and Saxon Simachembele from Freedom Ward.
Other councillors are Mathews Jere from Mwalibonena Ward, Friday Nkonde from Kariba Ward and Moses Simbaya from Libuyu Ward.
Inside sources at the Livingstone City Council claim that more than 50 plots might have been allocated illegally.
