Kalulushi Municipal Council has diverted funds meant for development to buy the Mayor’s official vehicle.
The situation has annoyed lands minister Wilbur Simusa who has since threatened to prosecute council management officers involved in the diversion of funds.
The money was meant for land development so that it can benefit many residents but has only been utilized by an individual.
“It is not good that the council decided to divert land development fund to purchase a car for the mayor at the expense of development. When funds are diverted to other uses, instead of making land available to the public, it becomes a serious problem,” he said.
