Kitwe City Council (KCC) will not lift the suspension to sale residential and commercial plots in the district until an effective mechanism has been found to manage the exercise.
KCC suspended the exercise after a near stampede which left some people bruised when over 1000 people gathered to buy plots with others spending the night at the council.
KCC acting public relations manager Dorothy Sampa said in an interview that the council has not yet found a strategy to help it manage the sale of plots.
“We are still strategising and we have not gone anywhere with regard to come up with a strategy to manage the programme,” Ms Sampa said.
KCC Town Clerk Bornwell Luanga suspended the sale of plots and promised the council would formulate a system to assist the local authority managed the exercise.
Some glass panes at the civic centre were shattered during the confusion and a woman was bundled in a police vehicle before being whisked away by police officers after a physical confrontation with them at the council.
The council was selling 900 plots in Ndeke and Chamboli residential areas and application forms are fetching a non refundable fee of KR500.
High cost plots are costing KR16000, medium (KR8,000) and low cost (KR4,000) and other plots are for commercial to accommodate a shopping centre and filling station.
I think the way they advertised was transparent enough! The queues were a true reflection of peoples desperation to have land. They have now responding to the pressure from the rich and they will sell off the plots without anyone knowing..
What transparence are you talking about? People started frequenting the civic centre a week before the advert came out and I wonder if some plots have not been sold already.

If you’re hypertensive, your doctor might recommend a 24 hours monitoring with the use of the machine. That’s about 40 readings, that’s why you want something that lasts longer than 24 hours. Check the machines’ battery time and save yourself a lot of time and money. Take the ones that goes off after 400 or more readings.
