The Anti-Corruption Commission ACC has arrested suspended Livingstone Mayor Milford Maambo and other council officials for corrupt practices.

Other arrested with Mr Maambo are the former Acting Town Clerk Chabala Chanda and Mosi-oa-Tunya Ward Councillor, Ziwa Malilo Ziwa on 25 counts of alleged corrupt practices.

The charges include alleged illegal land allocations in Livingstone, abuse of authority of office, corrupt acquisition of public property and revenue, and forgery.

ACC Spokesperson Timothy Moono has confirmed the arrests of the three council officials to ZNBC News in Livingstone.

Mr. Moono however, said the commission will issue a comprehensive statement on the matter on Friday, April 1, 2016.

The three are expected to appear in court for plea tomorrow, Friday.

In January this year, Local Government Minister Stephen Kampyongo suspended the Livingstone City Council along with the Ndola and Kitwe councils to pave way for investigations in alleged illegal land allocations.
