UPND wants top management at Kasempa town council removed

Rural News UPND wants top management at Kasempa town council removed

The United Party for National Development (UPND) has lodged in a petition seeking the removal of top management at Kasempa town council.

Speaking during the petition, UPND Kasempa constituency youth chairperson, Elion Kashala alleged that there has been mismanagement of funds at the local authority.

Mr Kashala alleged that management has failed to account for revenue collected for hiring out machinery that was bought under the Constituency Development Fund (CDF).

In the petition, UPND wondered how the local authority has continued to record the same amount of money raised from various levies despite the district’s increase in social and economic activities.

He said for many years the council has been recording the same amount of revenue collection which has hindered the provision of services to the people.

“They have failed to declare revenue collected from hire of a frontend loader, an equipment bought under CDF, meant for the public to hire out and thus in turn use the same revenue to provide service the people of Kasempa,” Mr Kashala said.

Mr Kashala further said that the party will not hesitate to petition any civil servant who is not delivering.

Receiving the petition Kasempa Council Chairperson, Brian Kankonkanya thanked the party for following the right procedure in airing out their grievances.

“If you have got any grievances there is always a procedure and you must be aware that our President Mr Hakainde Hichilema does not want to tolerate lawlessness,” he said.

He assured the petitioners that the council was going to handle the matter accordingly without any interference.

  1. This is a civilised way of speaking out by the UPND general membership. Protest is allowed in a democracy but it has to be protest with a genuine grievance. In other words, whn u protest u hv to hv a grievance to submit to relevant public officials for their attention. The future is bright with HH and his team in government.

  3. Tarino Orange, that’s garbage from u. Are u saying every Tonga politician is an HH? Are u sure Paul Moonga is cut from the same cloth as HH? Don’t make HH’s work more difficult than it should be.

  4. This is a silly petition to whom? If management has failed to account for revenue collected for hiring out machinery that was bought under the Constituency Development Fund (CDF)….report the issue to relevant authorities to investigate.

  6. #3 Don’t be surprised. HH may mean well albeit publicly but people like Tarino have different ideas. An example is one club in Kitwe which has literally been taken over by one ethinic group. If you are outside the Upnd Troika provinces you are tacitly told you are not welcome… actions speak louder than words. There’s no other talk other than either the cry to appoint as DCs from among them or talk ill of certain ethinic groups. I’m not comfortable with the future unless HH puts measures to protect people. Pronouncements are not enough.

  7. Deja Vu, I’m not sure I want to believe u just now. I do understand the anti-Tonga sentiment that exists in the minds of some of our uninformed fellow citizens. I will play my part in appealing for common sense. All this is evidence that nation-building remains work in progress in Zambia. I do understand your type. U don’t consider yourself as the equal of your fellow citizens.

  8. #7 I think you have misunderstood me. I’m not anti any tribe. I’m just giving you an example of what I have seen. I don’t consider myself superior to anyone or even inferior. I mix with anyone from anywhere but I steer away when I sense trouble. Thanks.

  9. Deja Vu – You seriously think I posted that #2 ? Do you not realise that my account has been cloned again and you are being led to debate about retrogressive issues.

  10. Tarino Orange, your point has been made. Thanks for correcting me. Obviously there’s a chap who’s really hurt by HH’s victory and won’t rest until he creates a crisis for the government.

  11. @6 -Deja Vu,

    Can you please give us an idea which club is discriminating against those from the non-Troika provinces? I am worried because I am a frequent visitor to my home town and I don’t to suffer the embarrassment of being ejected from any of the clubs I patronize while there.
