The National Dialogue Forum Standing Committee has summoned Kitwe Mayor, Christopher Kang’ombe to appear before it today.
This follows Mr. Kang’ombe’s complaint to President Edgar Lungu that the position of Mayor is being threatened by Members of Parliament attending the Forum.
Mr. Kang’ombe is also Local Government Association of Zambia President.
Earlier during the plenary session, Luangeni Mp Charles Zulu raised a point of order that Mr. Kang’ombe was not in order to take matters of the forum outside.
Mr. Zulu, who also laid before the forum yesterday’s edition of the Times of Zambia newspaper, asked the National Dialogue Forum Chairperson, Professor Muyunda Mwanalushi to render a serious ruling.
Professor Mwanalushi however said the standing committee will render a ruling later.
But National Dialogue Forum Spokesperson Isaac Mwanza told ZNBC News that Mr. Kang’ombe has been summoned to appear before the committee today.
Mr. Mwanza said every member of the forum is guided by the Act and that Mr. Kang’ombe has a right to be heard and answer all the queries of the Committee.
