ZULAWU condemns councillors demanding salaries

The Zambia United Local Authorities workers Union ZULAWU has condemned demands by councillors suggesting that they be put on a monthly salary.

ZULAWU President Misheck Nyambose says the demands are illogical adding that their demands have the potential to drive the already struggling councils into financial difficulties.

Speaking at a press briefing in Lusaka today, Mr. Nyambose said Councillors have always been part time civic leaders and can only be entitled to an allowance as and when they articulate in specific council duties.
