Two traditional leaders in Lunte District have appealed to President Edgar Lungu to intervene in the prolonged standoff among stakeholders over the proposed site for the Central business area.
Chief Chitoshi and Chief Mukupa Kaoma of the Lungu people complained that the lack of consensus on developmental matters between the local authority and them is not good for the new district.
Chief Chitoshi also charged that some government officials were allegedly working in isolation in the running of district affairs.
And Chief Mukupa Kaoma appealed to the Ministry of Local Government to urgently give direction on the procedures for the location of the district administration.
When reached for a comment, Acting Lunte District Administrative Officer Vincent Phiri said the dispute on the proposed location for the district administration has negatively affected the infrastructure development in the newly created district.
Mr. Phiri however said the Provincial Administration will soon re-engage the three traditional leaders in Lunte to find a suitable place for the establishment of the administrative offices.
He further called on the people of Lunte to support government programmes in the area in order to accelerate development in the new district.
