Two UPND MPs allegedly swindling communities of Likulushitu of their timber

Rural News Two UPND MPs allegedly swindling communities of Likulushitu of their timber

Reports have emerged in Likulushitu alleging that Information the two United Party for National Development Members of Parliament (MP) for Sioma and Sesheke Hon. Romeo Kangombe and Hon. Kaliye Mandandi are swindling communities of Likulushitu of their timber.

According to the report by a reporter, Simushi Simushi in Sioma, sources disclosed that the two MPs grabbed timber for Mr. Mutale and Mr Andrew Mbwainga from Likulushitu.

The matter was reported to the police but nothing is happening as police have been threatened to receive transfers to the remote areas and reward them with demotions should they try to go ahead with their investigations.

“We are also human beings we can easily lose temper and do something bad to them.” a local villager of Likulushitu complained.

“We request the government to send an investigation team from Lusaka who can work independently without fear or favor and come up with the truth about this case, enough is enough we have been exercising patience and seeking for justice but all in vain. ” One of the workers of Mr Andrew and Mr. Mutale’s camp complained.

The source added that villagers are complaining bitterly that the two MPs and UPND members are stealing from them daylight especially since they are from the ruling party.

Another source revealed that timber that was seized by the Forest department has been privately auctioned by the forest department and surprisingly only the two MPs Romeo Kangombe and Kaliye Mandandi were given to buy all the 500 processed logs.

One of the Indunas whose name has been withheld for fear of victimation has asked the two MPs who by press time were nicknamed as Business conmen in the name of MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT to swallow their pride and apologise to the community of Likulushitu whom they have betrayed and stolen their God-given timber.

Church members in Sioma who have been told about the case have appealed to Kaliye to return the timber to the community members and stop using their authority to suppress the same people who gave them power.

“This is total abusive of authority. Likulushitu is not under any government gazzated forest but purely a community forest(traditional forest).

  3. Looks like the new deal members have no regard or respect for their own President. We know HH is not just another weak leader like ECL who was unable to reign in his members and discipline them. Are UPND just another group of greedy thugs like PF who are in leadership for personal gain than service to the people? Zambia cries for true leadership. Servant minded leaders like the KKs, the Grey Zulus who put the people first. For the communities concerned, preserve your trees. Your forest is your survival. preserve it to benefit your future generations, your descendants.

  7. Those who still have faith in Vasco dagama are either naive or have False hope that this chap can do anything at all.
    This chap’s many goal is to address a misconception that the Tonga tribe has been mistreated or neglected by previous regimes and hence he is there to address these issues. He is trying to destroy the unit that has been built over the years.

  8. Romeo Kangombe (MP) is never far away from misconduct, mischievousness and crookedness. The sooner UPND strongly discipline this morally bankrupt MP, the better. He is also very immature in his head. We don’t need these rotten eggs such as this chap. Lets call him what he is without fear or favour.

  9. THIS IS THE CONDUCT WE STRONG CAMPAIGNED TO STOP HAPPENING ESPECIALLY FROM NATIONAL LEADERS . ROMEO KANGOMBE IS A LUCKY CHAP. HE WAS LET GO BY A COURT JUDGE FOR ASSAULTING TWO POLICE OFFICERS.. HE WAS PARDONED BY PF WHEN HE SURELY HE SHOULD HAVE GONE TO JAIL. WE KNOW THAT PRESIDENT LUNGU HAD PERSONALLY INERTERVANED IN THIS CASE TO LET HIM GO. HE HAS NEVER LEARNT A LESSON

  10. We warned you. Some of you thought that under 5 bally and his evil disciples were perfect. It has not even been a year and they have already started looting. Yes there is theft in any govt but the one in upnd will be historically the largest scale

    Thanks for raising your points. I agree with you. We need to stop developing this notion that we cannot condemn UPND. Wrong doing must be called out in the open. . The young man is arrogant, rude and too far from being mature, looking at some of the comments he often posts on Social Media. He is pushing his luck soon or later he will meet his match and it will be too late.

  13. Running a government is not easy. Some of the people who are in government have gone there to loot.Their behavior is openly displayed. It is better nipped in the bud than waiting till water reaches the mouth.Stitch in time saves nine.

  14. There must be independent investigations instituted into this as the villagers have demanded. This will prove whether the two MPs are indeed guilty of the same and if found wanting then they must be disciplined by the party without fear or favor. And if found innocent than those spreading such falsehoods must also be disciplined. Law should work both ways.

  15. That is a personal matter involving the TWO which has NOTHING to do with party matters.

    The right ministry to take that matter is ministry of agriculture/land. The president has nothing to do with this matter, let alone his ministers.
