Livingstone Mayor Milford Maambo has been impeached after a committee found him guilty of illegal land allocation.

A seven Member Committee was constituted to probe Mr Maambo and recommended that he should vacant office.

Mr Maambo, who is also UPND Simoonga Ward Councillor, has also been suspended as Simoonga Ward Councilor for six months.

Acting Mayor Fred Sikazwe, who is also Patriotic Front (PF) Akapelwa Ward Councillor, announced this last night after a full council meeting that sat for about five hours.

This was after receiving a report by the ad-hoc committee that was set early last month.

Mr Sikazwe says elections for a new mayor will be held within seven days.

“The Standing orders states that within next seven days, elections should be held and in this matter we will refer the matter to the Ministry of Local Government and Housing for guidance regarding the way forward,” Mr Sikazwe said

And Mosi-O-Tunya ward councilor Ziwa Ziwa who was also being probed by the committee has been suspended for six months.

Mr Sikazwe has also said the council meeting will pass on recommendations by the committee on Acting Town Clerk Chanda Chabala who has been reverted to his position as public health director to the Local Government Service Commission.

Meanwhile, Mr Sikazwe has said the council will engage residents who bought the illegal land in the city.

He said the council would treat each alleged case of illegal land allocation separately as well as engage the people who bought the land in question.

He has further appealed to residents to follow laid down procedure when acquiring land.

Recently, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) confirmed that it had also launched investigations into the alleged illegal allocation of plots by some councillors and other officials at the Livingstone City Council.

ACC spokesperson Timothy Moono said his Commission was investigating claims that Mr Mambo and other officials allegedly allocated themselves 18 plots without following procedure.

  1. It is good that this has happened and I hope it can carry on to all government wings as well.Still waiting for ACC to question Kambwili on his taking over the Luanshya golf course and building houses on it?

    • I totally agree with you, this should spread in all government departments, I’m pretty sure he is not the only one. Enlighten me Kubweka about the Luanshya golf course. I played on that course in the 90s. What has Happened on that golf course?

    • Iwe Nostradamus , ever heard of the word OBJECTIVITY? I’m sure you are aware of the word pollution and this surely relates to your mind. You are polluted and obsessed with an illusion of the idea of politics, and not politics itself. Where good has been done, it ought to be recommended. Even a chipuba seems wise when he keeps quiet in moments he doesn’t have anything to say, not just bubbling the contents of your corroded mind. In fact you should change your name to ignoramus.

  2. #Kubweka, I concur with you. We need firm response from other councils like LCC on those who have been involved in illegal land allocations. But did any of you see the photo of Kabwe on ZWD? see dot zambiawatchdog.com/lungus-agents-demanding-money-from-kabwe-business-houses/
    I can’t believe that a functioning council and a function Zambian president can allow the corridors of shops to be turned like the way they have been turned in Kabwe. I was against segregation in South Africa but now I see why the Boer introduced it because they knew that most blacks are filthy and can’t manage themselves. Oh, how I miss the KK days. But I detest the day Kafupi allowed the vendors desk at State house. Much more I detest the day Sata legalised street vending

    • KK Airport Cabinet Have you ever been to Kabwe and if at all you’ve been, when was the last time you were there? The whole lot of Kabwe town centre is FULLY tarred with proper road markings, the four roundabouts are rehabilitated with and the photo you are alleging from ZWD is an old photo, that place is fully tarred today and it’s opposite Zambeef which is next to Bata shoe shop. If you consider yourself old enough to be on the Internet, then please don’t succumb to propaganda. You can raise a point yes, but not based on false information.

      Common sense baba, common sense!
