Chililabombwe Deputy Mayor Gift Musukwa has been suspended by his party, the Patriotic Front for pledging loyalty to the party.
Mr Musukwa was suspended for three months for saying that he is loyal to the party and not to individuals like Chililabombwe Member of Parliament Richard Musukwa.
To the party leadership, this seemed like a rebellion and ordered him to exculpate himself before the disciplinary committee.
This means he will not be attending any meeting at the council during the period of suspension.
Mr Musukwa is Mumba ward Councillor.
PF in Chililabombwe has failed to heal from intra party polls which were conducted earlier this year.
