Opposition UPND councillors Arthur Moonde and Peter Mulubisha are on the verge of being expelled for rejecting the candidature of Charmaine Musonda ahead of the June 4 by-election. Nakachenje Ward Councillor Arthur Moonde and Chinyanja Ward Councillor Peter Mulubisha have opposed Chairmaine’s candidature. The duo held a press briefing denouncing party leadershing and declaring they will not campaign for the candidate saying they would not campaign for an “immoral” lawmaker. “Having thoroughly consulted our people in our Wards and Chilanga district at large on the adoption of Musonda Charmaine Mel, we conclude that the UPND has erred on this adoption on very strong moral grounds,” councillor Moonde is quoted by Smart Eagles “We were never consulted… We have thus resolved never to campaign for Charmaine – our people would never accept the UPND candidate and our conscience would never allow us.” The statement by the councillors has not gone down well with the party leadership. “Those guys are gone. We can’t tolerate that kind of indiscipline so there is a process being instituted but the fact is that they should consider themelves former UPND councillors,” the source said. The expulsion of Moonde and Mulubisha will result in ward by-elections later in the year.

Works and supply minister Felix Mutati says government has intensified the control of usage of government vehicles on weekends by launching the first phase of a nation wide campaign which saw a lockdown of Lusaka Province. All the four main entry points into the province had Road Blocks mounted by Ministry of Works and Supply Officials. Speaking in Kabwe where he was part of the team of officers that mounted a Road Block at Mulungushi University, Mutati said his Ministry had intensified the control of government vehicle abuse as a way of controlling the use of public resources. He said government vehicles were part of the assets that belonged to the people of Zambia and that it was his duty to control the usage of people’s assets and prevent abuse. Meanwhile, a Chinese national was among the drivers impounded by Ministry of Works and Supply officers for driving a government vehicles without any documentation that allows government workers to drive government vehicles on the weekend. The Chinese national who was driving from the East was impounded at Waterfalls Check Point where ministry officials had mounted their Road Block on the Great East Road. The official who was driving from the East could not explain himself as to why he was driving a government vehicle without documentation prompting the Ministry Officials to impound the vehicle and instruct the Chinese national to come to the Ministry of Works and Supply on Monday And Senior Inspector of Government Transport John Chisanga says the Ministry has recorded some compliance in the usage of government vehicles on weekends and after working hours since the commencement of the exercise to clamp down on the abuse of government vehicles on weekends and after working hours. Chisanga explained that though they are some radicals who are still giving them problems in their execution of duty the exercise has recorded some level of compliance as people have started to follow procedure as can be seen from the reduction in the number of culprits. “The Government Control Unity has carried out a countrywide operation and for Lusaka I have got details which we have just gathered because we mounted road blocks on four points. Eastern, Western, Southern and Northern entry points and the data from all these points which we have gathered from 07 up to 12:45 from Eastern entry point there about 19 vehicles recorded two impounded and and 4 were charged they are supposed to pay the charges at Works and Supply. “From the Southern entry 30 were recorded 10 where charged 4 were impounded so these have to come to some fines at Works and Supply. From Western entry point 16 vehicles were recorded and 5 were impounded. From Northern entry point 25 were recorded 10 were charged and 4 impounded. “From the statistics we have here its like there is a downward trend. There is some compliance somewhere. We are still clamping down on them like on the Eastern part there was a certain individual who claimed that he had bought the vehicle but he was still using GRZ number plate so we had to remove those number plates since he said the process of changing ownership was still on. We asked him to come to the Ministry with the vehicles new number so that we can assist to complete the process of changing ownership,” he said. The exercise which started three weeks ago to control the usage of government vehicles during weekends and after working hours continued on Saturday with Ministry officers mounting 4 Road Blocks in Lusaka.
