The office of the District Commissioner in Chipata has written to the Permanent Secretary to complain over power coordination with Chipata Municipal Council.
Chipata District Commissioner, Kalunga Zulu revealed this when he addressed heads of government departments at his office yesterday.
Mr. Zulu castigated the local authority for what he described as failing to coordinate with his office in improving service delivery.
Mr. Zulu says it is unfortunate that the council has not been coordinating well with the district administration despite the two offices being key in fostering development in the district.
Meanwhile, Mr. Zulu has warned civil servants in the district to be committed to duty and serve the public with passion.
He says that there is need for all government workers to be serious in improving their service delivery, adding that they have a mandate to represent and explain government programmes to the masses.
Mr. Zulu noted that there are a lot of developmental projects that government had embarked on that needed to be highlighted for the public to understand.
