Kabwata Constituency aspiring Member of Parliament Clement Tembo has filed an injunction in the Lusaka High Court to restrain the new owners of the controversial looters land from developing a shopping mall.
Mr. Tembo said an injunction was successfully filed in to restrain the Chinese investor from developing the 5 hectares land where the Looters Basketball and Tennis Courts are situated.
He contended that there is need for Kabwata residents to have a stake in the proposed investment before the construction of the mall commences.
“As residents of Kabwata, we not sit idle and watch this type of looting and plunder of land which is our inheritance. We have managed to file in an injunction to push that this development of the mall is stopped until the residents are offered a stake,” Mr Tembo said.
He added, “Even if it is five percent. We want the residents to have a say. We are hoping the courts will help us to have a say in the construction of the new mall. We will stand with the people of Kabwata until this is done.”
