THE Kombiam local level governmentís chamber in the Kombiam/Ambum district, Enga province was burnt to ashes last Thursday afternoon.
According to provincial police commander Supt Michael Chare, the fire started between 1pm and 1.30 pm yesterday.
Mr Chare said that the chamber constructed at the cost of K600,000, had six living rooms for the staff, a conference room, a toilet and other valuable items.
He said everything inside the chamber was burnt to ashes along with the building.
He said no one was around when the building caught fire.
He said it took two hours for the building to be razed.
Mr Chare said that police suspected foul play in the torching of the building.
He said investigation, were underway.
He said from the information received, all the councillors in the Kombiam district have been demanding their monthly allowances even though their five-year term of office expired in November last year.
He said the people in the district were not happy when rumours spread that the chamber would be converted into a school for the children.
He said police strongly believed that some people actually set the building on fire because of the reasons given.
Mr Chare said that police treated this as an alleged case of arson and would fully investigate the matter and bring to justice the people responsible so that justice can prevail.
He said that his station commander was on the ground investigating the matter together with the criminal investigation officers and urged the people to come forward without fear and provide the police with necessary information that would lead to the arrest of the suspects involved.
