A BEMBA sub-chief who allegedly agreed to give Fred M’membe a huge tract of land in exchange for a palace, clinic and school, got nothing.
And now Chief Mukwikile of Shiwang’andu says the former Post Newspaper proprietor, Mr M’membe had not yet delivered the development promised to his sub-chief, Chama Nkulungwe.
Chief Mukwikile told the Daily Nation in an interview that Mr M’membe has since 2016 not honored his promise to construct a school, a clinic and build a house for sub-chief Chama Nkulungwe in exchange for the land.
The traditional leader said Mr. M’membe has never shown commitment towards his proposal of giving the people of Mwika village a clinic and school and build a house for the sub-chief as agreed.
Mr M’membe who is Socialist party leader is alleged to have built a mansion on the piece of land acquired using by allegedly deceiving the chief, off the shores of the Chambishi River.
Mr M’membe was personally taken by Shiwang’andu Member of Parliament (MP) Stephen Kampyongo who was an aspiring candidate at the time who revealed that he was present at the time he “Mr. M’membe” made promises to the chief when acquiring the land.
And Evangelical Youth Alliance President, Reverend Moses Lungu said it was sad that a person aspiring to lead the country could use such deceptive ways to get what he wanted.
Rev. Lungu described the act by Mr. M’membe as selfish and urged the chiefs in the district to denounce him and alert their subjects of such people who use the distress of people to their advantage.
“That is how selfish M’membe can be, he does not mean well and such a character is not to be trust, he had the Post Newspaper closed for non tax compliance,” he said.
