Government allocates land for Kalumbila households displaced by mine

Economy Government allocates land for Kalumbila households displaced by mine

Government has allocated 500 hectares of land to settle over 600 households that have been displaced by mining activities in Kalumbila area of Solwezi.

The move is aimed at ending a protracted land dispute on which to settle 605 households affected by mining activities in the area.

Speaking when he addressed the displaced families North western Province Minister Dawson Kafwaya said government is concerned about the plight of the affected families and has since allocated four hectares of land for farming activities in addition to the plots they have already been settled on.

And Mr Kafwaya is disappointed at the poor quality of housing units constructed by Kalumbila minerals for the displaced families.

The North-Western Province Minister expressed sadness at the lack of a clinic,
inadequate school infrastructure and the poor water reticulation for the people resettled by the mine.

Mr Kafwaya has since issued a 90 days ultimatum to Kalumbila mine to construct a clinic, a 1 by 2 classroom block and improve the water system in the resettlement area.

Efforts to get a comment from Kalumbila mine management on the matter failed by press time.

  1. “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

    But a nation headed for disaster if you keep on allowing strange religions to be practiced in Zambia.

    Islam teaches that non-Muslims are less than fully human. Muhammad said that Muslims can be put to death for murder, but that a Muslim could never be put to death for killing a non-Muslim.
