Member of Parliament for Iramba West, Nchemba Lameck Mwigulu
THE Singida Region Minerals Association (SIREMA) has urged the government to reprimand and reprove the Member of Parliament for Iramba West, Nchemba Lameck Mwigulu, for allegedly interfering with the duty of other State organs in the region.
A strong worded statement comes hardly three days after the Deputy Minister for Energy and Minerals, Stephen Maselle, concluded his official visit to Nkonkilangi Village in Iramba District.
Mr Maselle had ostensibly visited the area to solve a long standing conflict at a gold mine in the area involving a mining licence holder and villagers, who unfortunately, have no mining licence.
The statement signed by the chairperson for SIREMA, Robert Malando, further called for the government to stop the MP’s acts that in their view are aimed at instigating and segregating the people in the area.
