CHINGOLA Municipal Council has been making soaring headlines over alleged illegal land allocation by some councillors and land agents.
The revelation has already implicated Chingola District Commissioner George Sichula and the mayor has been quoted in some sections of the media to say that his council was marred by rampant illegal land allocation.
Today the council holds an emergency full council meeting at 14:00 hours to resolve the alleged illegal land allocation and find the way forward.
Due to sensitivity of the matter at hand the insider has tipped The Independent Observer that the council may opt to empty the public gallery, meaning that Reporters and the members of the public may not be allowed to attend
But why can’t the council emulate Parliament where all deliberations are open to public, unless in working committees?
Is it because some of the councillors may be impeached, while others may be sent out in an effort to be discussed?
