Kabwe Mayor Patrick Chishala has played Pontius Pilate after being implicated in the mega land scandal where it is reported that he is the one who sold the land to the Chinese.
Mr. Chishala has pleaded his innocence in the matter saying the said signatures that authorised the dubious deal were not his and that it could be a case of forgery.
He has told Spice FM that at no time did he engage in the sale of any land, as such activities are a preserve of mandated officials at the local authority.
Mr. Chishala, who could not give further details, maintained that the signatures that are appearing on the said documents are not his but are just similar, which is an indication of a forgery.
