Hardworking Kitwe Mayor Christopher Kang’ombe is facing resistance from fellow councillors despite winning the hearts of many ordinary citizens for his work ethics. The youthful civic leader, who doubles as Patriotic Front Kitwe District chairman, is not having it easy to make decisions as some of his fellow councillors have opted not to support most of his development agenda. Kang’ombe, who has been in the council for over 10 years, has attained experience to run the local authority but his efforts are not being appreciated while others elsewhere including Lusaka residents continue to envy his leadership skills. An investigation has revealed that some councillors have ganged up to frustrate the Local Government Association of Zambia president from delivering on his promise. Kang’ombe has however vowed not to give up but will continue working for the good of the city and country at large. Some councillors who sought anonymity complained that Kang’ombe has been soliciting plots from their respective wards but continues to block his friends when they seek other favours within the system. They accused Kang’ombe of being selfish and not helping his friends’ access land. “The problem we have is that he wants everything to himself which is not fair. We all need to benefit because the Council is not about him but all of us; he is not a bad leader perse. He has tried transforming the City but he shouldn’t do some of these things individually,” one of the councillors said. Another councillor said Kang’ombe was enduring was political battles that he can overcome. “I have nothing against him but yes I know amongst us some don’t like him but I think it’s an issue of jealous. These issues of ambitions, he has complained before that we are not helping him,†another said. Kang’ombe has however declined to be drawn into what he described as “petty squabbles” prevailing among a selected few in the Kitwe council. “I have an obligation to work for the people that elected me into office and that is my priority for now, I will not waste time discussing such issues. The people need services and that is my focus for now,†said Kang’ombe. The post Kang’ombe Faces Resistance In Kitwe appeared first on Zambia Reports.

There was drama at MUVI television studios on Sunday where Dr Nevers Mumba accused the producers of the popular live talk show program The Assignment of setting up with MMD national secretary Raphael Nakachinda without prior notification. Dr Mumba was incensed when his former spokesperson Nakacinda called in via video to challenge his claims regarding the leadership of the former ruling party. Dr Mumba who was featuring on Muvi TV as “party president” refused to engage Nakacinda whom he said was not his equal. He told the producers that he would engage the MMD President Felix Mutati because he had a claim to his position. “If he is National Secretary let him talk to his equal number, if Mutati comes I will stop here and talk to him because he claims to have my position,” Dr Mumba said. Presenter Master Chimbala insisted on having Dr Mumba continue as Nakachinda mounted the challenge. “No, am saying to you that if president Mutati comes right now and sits where he is seated (Nakacinda) we will have the discussion. Right now you are making me talk to somebody who I have no business talking to,†the visibly disturbed Dr Mumba responded. Dr Mumba later tried to force entry to the production studio of the TV station where he accused the producers of the program of hiding Nakacinda. “I know you planned this so that you can embarrass me. I should have been told that I was featuring with somebody. This was a scheme to embarrass me. This is wrong and you know it,†fumed Dr Mumba as he stormed out of the studios He is reported to have threatened to go to Prime Television to expose Muvi Tv on what he claimed was a scheme to destroy his argument against the duly elected Mutati. Dr Mumba waited for over 30 minutes so that he could prove if indeed the MMD National Secretary Nakacinda was not right at the studios as well. Nakacinda had courageously called in to confront his former president so as to prove who the true office bearers of the once vibrant party were. Nakacinda produced evidence to prove that the convention was legal as per constitutional requirement of the party and produced the ruling from the High Court which threw out the injunction petition against the holding of the convention.
