Thirst for intoxicating liquor has landed a Patriotic Front-PF Lusaka Councilor who has been detained by Ethiopian security officials for allegedly incurring a bill of 2000 dollars, about Ten Million Kwacha, in unpaid beer at a named hotel.
Councilor Chikutalo Nkhoma of Lusaka’s Silwiza ward in Northmead area is said to have gone to that country with other council officials where he incurred the bill to quench his thirst.
Upon checking out other council officials left Mr. Nkhoma in the hands of the security personnel as they could not pay the accumulated bill.
And Lusaka Mayor Daniel Chisenga has expressed disappointment over the development describing the incident as embarrassing for the nation.
Mr. Chisenga further says Mr. Nkhoma will face disciplinary action as soon as he is released by the Ethiopian officials.
