Patriotic Kwacha Lubwa Ward councillor Godfridah Chulu has been suspended as information and publicity secretary for alleged gross misconduct. Chulu who is former Kitwe Deputy Mayor has fallen out with the local leadership for allegedly using vulgar language. According to a suspension letter signed by Constituency Chairman Alexander Mulenga, Chuulu is alleged to have used derogatory statements against the constituency chairman. Mulenga further alleges that Chuulu insulted him after being informed that as constituency chairman he was organising a visitation meeting in her ward. “Once again I wish to bring to your attention, councillor Chuulu, least you are not aware, Kwacha is my Constituency as Chairman and therefore, I have every right to be anywhere to conduct PF party activities in all six wards in Kwacha Constituency, in view of the above I am again informing you that I can no longer entertain your bad behaviour anymore, sanity has to prevail,” the letter read in part. The Party has since given Chuulu14 days in which to appeal her suspension from the Party. But when contacted for a comment, Chuulu said the suspension letter was null and void because procedure was not followed. Chuulu further accused the chairman of working against the Member of Parliament Joseph Malanji. The post PF Lubwa Ward Councillor Suspended for Vulgar Language appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Zambia defeated Madagascar 1-0 through a Lazarous Kambole 39th minute goal with Zimbabwe waiting until penalty shoot out to beat Lesotho 3-1 after the match ended 0-0 in regulation. Zimbabwe goalkeeper George Chigova proved the hero again saving two spot kicks following up on the three he saved in the quarterfinal shoot-out win over Botswana on Sunday. The shoot-out finished in unusual circumstances when, needing to convert his kick, Lesotho midfielder Jane Thaba-Ntso made too much of a stuttering movement in his run-up and his kick was disqualified by referee Ahmad Heeralall from Mauritius. It means Zimbabwe and Zambia clash in the COSAFA Cup final for the fourth time in six COSAFA Cup tournaments, with Zimbabwe having claimed victory in 2009 and 2017, and Zambia on home soil in 2013.
