A public policy analyst has urged Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili and his Bahati counterpart Harry Kalaba to resign from the ruling Patriotic Front to immediately pave way for by-elections. Mwamba Peni II has stated that going by the utterances and association by th duo, it was clear that they left the ruling Patriotic Front(PF) a long time ago as they had abandoned the principles that brought them to the PF. Below is his posting: “My considered view is that if a club you belong to and represent out there no longer promote, hold, and exhibit the same values and principles that attracted your membership initially, you are at liberty to discontinue your association with it.” “Hence, being a member of Parliament under the sponsorship of one political but propagating the ideas of another political party is fraud. In the case of CK and HK, it is moral that they resign and pursue their fundamental human rights under the auspice of their respective political parties.” “You cannot champion morality when the very basis for your path in that direction is shrouded in immorality and misrepresentation. And if PF had good lawyers worth their salt, there is enough evidence to show that the duo are not their members.

Bwana Mkubwa Member of Parliament Dr Jonas Chanda is upset with Kafubu Water and Sewerage for charging residents huge bills when some of them have had no service for over a decade. Dr Chanda says some areas in his constituency have had no water for years but residents have continued to receive water bills going up to K 10,000. He has since directed the water utility company to address water blues in Ndeke, Mushili, Kaloko and other surrounding areas in his constituency. Dr Chanda has complained that most residents in his constituency have endured water shortages for years, yet the water utility company has continued to bill them. He said it was unacceptable that residents were being issued with high water bills but have not been receiving services from the Water Utility company for years. Dr Chanda alleged that his residents have complained to him that Kafubu Water and Sewerage Company field officers have been charging exorbitant fees to unblock blocked sewer pipes in different areas in his constituency. He has advised that the water utility company writes off completely the water bills or engage the affected residents and find better repayment plans. “I wish to state here that I am disappointed that our Water utility company has continued to issue bills to our residents that have been receiving water for years, it is for this reason that I am asking the water utility company to write off these bills because some households have bills up to K 10,000 but have not received water in years,” he stated.

Elias Kamanga, the former Copperbelt Permanent Secretary now in Northern Province, has instituted legal action against prominent Kitwe farmer Kevin Soper Kamanga is also taking steps to sue media houses for defamation of character. Soper has on two occasions attempted to stage a walking protest from Kitwe to Lusaka to meet President Edgar Lungu on claims that Kamanga grabbed 600 hectares of land from him. Police have on both occassions Soper embarked on the journey to Lusaka thwarted the attempt. Kamanga says he has instructed his lawyers William Nyirenda and Company to commence legal proceedings against Soper and some media institutions he accusing them of disregarding his advice to get facts from the Kitwe City Council. He wondered why he was the only one being maligned when there are many other individuals who acquired farm land on the same piece Soper is claiming. Kamanga said his lawyers are also pursuing another matter to ascertain whether Soper’s conduct was not contemptuous especially that the decision to sub-divide by the Kitwe City Council was a directive from a Supreme Court ruling in 2000. The Permanent Secretary has however said he only owns a title to 59 hectares of farm land contrary to Soper’s claims that he grabbed 600 hectares from his farm. In 2000, the Supreme Court made up of then Chief Justice Enerst Sakala, Lombe Chibesa Kunda and Ireen Mambilima delivered a ruling that the farm land in excess of 1900 hectares belonging to Mfubu Ranch be subdivided after it established that it was neglected and under utlised. The Supreme Court directed that Mfubu ranch be given 600 hectares while the rest be subdivided by the Kitwe City Council who went on offer Soper a good number of hectares but refused and claimed the whole land was his. The ruling also cancelled Soper’s title and that of the late Barnabas Chellah the former Wusakile Member of Parliament. Chellah owned a huge piece of farm land alongside Soper before he was hacked to death by squatters. The post Elias Kamanga Institutes Legal Action Over Land Dispute appeared first on Zambia Reports.
