MORE than 300 women in Kitwe have allegedly been swindled money by a woman of Mindolo township on the pretext of spearheading empowerment programmes for women under the Vice-President’s office.
Kitwe District Commissioner Binwell Mpundu has warned that he will not allow any individuals using the office of the Vice-President to swindle people.
The women, who were made to pay K40 each for membership cards, said they were given the card under the organisation called Women of Persistence Club and Community Development.
The women yesterday protested at Mr Mpundu’s office and demanded to know if the woman in question was assigned under the office of the Vice-President to mobilise them for jobs.
