Mpongwe Member of Parliament Gabriel Namulambe has called for the re-introduction of crop levy in his constituency.

The law- maker made the call when he toured the constituency on Monday.

Namulambe who was also  MMD Mpongwe Mp  before he defected to the governing PF,  said it was  unfortunate, that the former ruling party had done away with the crop levy in the area.

He said crop levy was the major source of income for Mpongwe district council saying that now that crop levy has been done away with, Mpongwe district council was finding it difficulty to source for money locally and carry out some municipal duties in the area.

And during his tour of the constituency, Namulambe learnt that Zambeef which has a farm in the district will employee about 1000 youths in the district  as farm labourers,in a bid to reduce unemployment in the Lamba land.
