Zambia: Mweetwa Tips Councils


Southern Province Minister Cornelius Mweetwa has advised Mazabuka and Choma Municipal councils to work towards attaining the city status within the period 2021 to 2026.

Mr. Mweetwa says Mazabuka is one unique District in the country owing to its sugar production but lacks amenities to own a city status.

The Minister has observed that Mazabuka and Choma share similar situations adding that the two councils must seize the opportunity.

Mr. Mweetwa says it is in the best interest of the New Dawn Administration to see local authorities improving their statuses across the country in providing quality services to the people.

He has however warned against awarding City status to Choma and Mazabuka on the basis that UPND is now in power but rather on Merit following all procedures.

The Minister was speaking when he installed both Mayors for Mazabuka and Choma.

And Mazabuka mayor Vincent Lilanda said he will endeavour to make Mazabuka a clean and green town.

Meanwhile, Choma Mayor Javan Simoloka said the council will align its activities to that of the UPND manifesto.

He reiterated that Choma as a provincial capital must be a city.
