National Initiative for Civic Education (NICE) has slamed Nsanje councillors for their failure to formulate by laws for the district saying this is having a negative impact on social service delivery.
NICE district officer Kondwani Milowa said it was unfortunate that the councillors were delaying to formulate the bylaws.
“They lack seriousness. The district has many problems including high girl school drop out which can be addressed by bylaws,” said the NICE district officer.
Council chairman Andrew Piriminta said the bylaws would be formulated before the end of term of current counncillors.
He said the council does not have capacity and resources to do the job now.
