UDF Annoyed With Naming of Atupele in Land Scam
The opposition United Democratic Front-UDF- has reacted angrily to assertions that it’s President Atupele Muluzi approved allocation of Livimbo school land to a businessman, an issue that has now sparked controversy.
UDF spokesperson, Ken Ndanga, says the assertions are sheer propaganda from government officials who are failing to justify their actions on the said incident. Atupele Muluzi was minister of lands in the previous administration in a quire political relationship.
Current Lands minister, Symon Vuwa Kaunda, is on record saying a former minister of lands gave the approvals in 2017. At that time, Muluzi was the sitting minister.
Vuwa Kaunda now says his office is working on ensuring that that the matter is investigated as demanded by HRDC and several committees of parliament
But HRDC chairperson, Timothy Mtambo, insists that what they expect on the Livimbo issue is action from government in ensuring the public school is permanently protected.
