Solwezi Municipal Council Town Clerk, Mbulo Seke has implored residents to continue airing their views on the operations of the local authority in the area.

Mr. Seke said the Zambian laws have empowered citizens to hold the council accountable for service provision and how it utilizes public funds.

He said this when he closed a stakeholder meeting to review the vision, long term strategic objectives and performance of the council’s 2015-2019 strategic plan.

Mr. Seke stated that the local authority deliberately invited councilors who all belong to the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) to attend the meeting to enable them to get views from people.

He said all the views and information obtained from the people during the meeting will be presented to a full council meeting on 25 June for approval of the council’s strategic plan.

Mr. Seke commended everyone who attended the meeting and those who put their submissions in writing saying their input is important in aligning the council’s strategic plan with the 2017-2021 Seventh National Development Plan.
