Kafue Ward councillor Jane Mutwale has been handed a six months suspension by a full council meeting for gross misconduct.
Town Clerk Cosmas Chalusa said Mutwale had been suspended for conducting herself in a manner that does not befit a public officer’s status.
Chalusa said the decision to suspend the civic leader was arrived at during special council meetings held on the 13th and 17th December, 2018 respectively under minute number SC/1015/12/18 (8).
“The councillor’s suspension was in accordance with Councillor’s standing order number 46 and regulations number five of the statutory instrument 140 of 1995 which guides the conduct of the Councillors,” he stated.
Chalusa said the Civic leader has since been barred from engaging in any civic leadership activities until the end of her suspension.
He said Chililabombwe Mayor Christabel Mulala will be in charge of Kafue ward during the Councillor’s suspension.
