A combined team of Lusaka City Council and State Police have demolished 14 illegal houses in Lusaka’s Chinika area.

The Lusaka City Council and the Police conducted an operation last night in Chinika area where 14 structures built on private land were demolished following a court order.

LCC Acting Public Relations Manager Habeenzu Mulunda disclosed in a statement that out of the 14 houses that were demolished, 8 houses were built up to roof level and 6 were on slab level.

Mr. Mulunda appealed to the residents of Lusaka to ensure that they follow proper channels of land acquisition in order to avoid inconveniences.

He stressed that in the recent past people have been invading any open space they come across without verifying the status of the piece of land either with the council or the Ministry of Land a situation he said has resulted in many having their structures demolished leading to loss of their hard earned money.

He advised people wishing to purchase land from individuals to first engage officers at the council in the department of legal Service, Deed Section for guidance on the status of the land before making any monetary transaction.

    • Please proceed to demolish all illegal settlements in Lusaka. There has been too much lawlessness, where uneducated party cadres become surveyors overnight and allocate land already on title! Zambia cannot develop with such disrespect for the law; and no investor can bring capital to such a country (they will fear their land being invaded with impunity). Let all illegal land allocations stop and invaded land restored to rightful owners, especially in Ibex Hill (just a few metres from the new massive USA Embassy Complex); Lusaka West (very near Lusaka’s main borehole source – hence no water in Lusaka); and Silverest area (land that belongs to the University of Zambia – hence UNZA dons lack accommodation). I appeal to the President (H.E. Edgar Lungu) to bring sanity to land tenure in…

  2. THERE ARE ALSO PEOPLE OR INDIVIDUALS WHO WERE BEING ISSUED WITH TITLE-DEEDS BY LUSAKA WITHOUT LETTERS OF OFFER FROM RESPECTIVE COUNCILS THROUGH SHORT-CUTS LEAVING THOSE GOING RIGHT PROCEDURES STRANDED WITH NECESSARY DOCUMENTATION WHICH SHOULD FINALLY ENABLE THEM TO BE ISSUED WITH TITLE-DEEDS. CORRUPTION MUST SIMPLY COME TO AN END IN ZAMBIA. WE HAVE SUFFERED TOO MUCH.

  3. The trend of primitive, Zambian men, stripping vulnerable women naked in public is not right and it should be stopped!!
    Mobs of jobless, classless, stinking Zambian men target and attack vulnerable young beautiful women and rip away their clothes until they are naked…. their dirty idea to take their minds from poverty, I wonder?
    I’m asking ”primitive Zambian people to PLEASE be civilized… its none of YOUR business what someone is wearing.
    Shame on these lowlifes, when did anyone’s dressing became another person’s business?
    These savages are potential rapists who should rot in jail.
    The last time ‘God created us’ naked and in African culture women wore bark-skin……… “G-String”
    IMIBINDE & TOPLESS

    Chitenge’s & SALAULA WERE BROUGHT to you BY foreginers!

    Shame on you Zambians!!
