The tenant and her family had their household goods locked up with in the same house and warned not to step foot at the premises or else risk being charged for criminal trespass to even monitor their produce at the said farm

  1. It is unfair to expect a landlord to wait 90 days if their contract says one month notice. Zambians never pay rent in advance so if you give them three months notice that will mean they will owe you four months rent which they will go with free and never pay back. The courts should be reasonable not everyone builds a house from stolen money some of us work for it. Poor Ingrid is being humiliated now because she was in the Kaseba team.

    • Your argument is fine except where you say it’s because she was in the former govt that’s why she’s suffering what you’re calling a humiliation. They’re after her because she didn’t appear in court the first time she was supposed to thereby making a mockery of our laws. No. When you’re summoned to appear in court, better show up otherwise it’s lock up.

    • This law should be changed! How do you give 90days notice to someone who has defaulted and already owes you rent. Is there any sense in this. Some Zambians don’t really care when they haven’t paid rent or school fees. Yet one sees them driving posh cars. Banione syndrome. Living above their means! Then the lies start! This mentality needs to shift. We are getting deeper into it.

  2. Nkembo go to school.
    Any landlord has no right to lock up tenants belongings in default of rentals JUST for ONE MONTH.
    Some former ministers were appointed in default by late Sata who had no regard for meritocracy. Times are changing and more to change since some current ministers can not even use a computer.

  3. The former minister did not appear before the courts. She is being arrested for that. The 90 day issue should have been explained in court. No one should take the law in their hands. Some Zambians pay for six months in advance, by the way. This is sad but we should all learn that we operate in the Rule Of Law society.
