Lundazi district is eyeing acquiring municipal status.
Speaking during inside council forum organised by Caritas Chipata, Lundazi council secretary, Magubwi Sinkolomba says, that Chipata is expected to attain city status, while Lundazi and Petauke are currently vying for municipal status.
Mr. Sinkolomba, however, indicated that the district is faced with a lot of challenges.
These include limited state land for expansion of the district, unskilled man power and lack of a fire tender.
And Mr. Simukolomba revealed the 2013 council plan to put up street lights, acquire enough state land for the expansion of the district and find a suitable site for a new grave yard.
Mr. Simukolomba also explained that the land between council and police station belonged to the local authority.
Speaking during the same meeting, Lundazi district senior agriculture officer, Fredrick Mwansa urged the council to include in their plans a library and a play pack.
Meanwhile participants resolved to constitute a community committee on land to help the council handle land issues and illegal development that has become rampart in the district.
