THE Leadership Movement has commended the decision by Local Government Minister, Charles Banda, to suspend Lusaka and Kitwe City Councils.
According to the opposition party, the suspension was timely and would serve as a warning to other councils that were allocating land illegally.
Party National Youth Coordinator, Chalwe Chandalala, told the Daily Nation that it was important that all well-meaning Zambians supported the decision of the Minister.
“The suspension of Lusaka City and Kitwe City councils and their councillors is a good move and all we can say is well done Minister,”he said.
Mr Chandalala said that the party would always support decision taken in the interest of the country and called upon on the Minister to suspend other councils that were involved in illegal allocation of land.
He advised leaders to have a sense of public shame and concentrate on delivering proper service to the people.
The opposition leader said it was sad to note that illegal land dealsin Zambia had become the order of the day.
“The other solution to stop these illegal allocations of land is to give the Zambian people the long awaited land policy they have been crying for,” Mr Chandalala said.
