Government has with immediate effect suspended the Kalumbila town council for 3 months.

Minister of Local Government Charles Banda says the suspension emanates from Councilors decision to invite their political party leaders to inspect government projects, on the pretext that the projects where solely undertaken by them.

Speaking during a media briefing in Lusaka today, Dr. Banda said that the move taken by the councilors tends to politicize the process of service delivery adding that the Patriotic Front government will not allow such illegalities in the councils.
