Lands, Natural Resources and Environment protection Deputy Minister Davies Mwango says government has simplified the land acquisition process for Zambians living in the Diaspora.

Mr. Mwango says the simplified process will enable Zambians who are living abroad to easily access land at home.

He says government is in the process of revising Land policy adding that government is currently receiving inputs from different stakeholders including government ministries.

Mr. Mwango was speaking on arrival at Bole International airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from Kinshasa Congo where he was attending a climate change meeting.

He adds that a Land task force was established to deal with challenges currently being faced in Land administration in the country.

Mr. Mwango has since encouraged Zambians in Diaspora to apply for Land back home in order to invest in the country

Meanwhile Ambassador Susan Sikaneta says the African Union is grateful to the Zambian government for the 10 acres plot land given for the construction of the new headquarters of the ECOSSOC Secretariat and another piece of land for the construction of the new COMESA headquarters in Lusaka.

She says this will be valuable use of land whose benefits will remain forever and add to the beauty of the city of Lusaka.

This is contained in a statement released to qfm by first secretary for press and tourism at the Zambian embassy in Ethiopia Naomi Chulu.

    • Good luck to those who have no villages. My village has a lot of land , I did not need to go through the Ministry when I needed land for my ranch. All needed was to approach my chief.

    • Getting papers from a chief is not proof of title. We had to go to the ministry of lands to get title deeds as well. That is when trouble started.

    • Another trick by this donchi kubeba government, Just like they have promised to increased student allowances after elections when they are failing to pay students now.

    • @Ndobo, eeehe ayi kwena these PF, even you are so broke its not to be begging from your own people in diaspora to send money for land in Itedzitedzi. Looking for money to increase salary of the cheap $3000 president.
      I have my own land from my grandfather, and I am not allowing you PF to sell a piece to Ndobo in diaspora.

  1. Just use your common sense – there is no process in place. That chap is just politicking. The whole thing is still at consultation stage and it will not be ready by the time they are booted out of office!!

    • Actually this has been said many times over the years — since the time MMD was in power. Just forget about these lies. Zambian politicians are shameless liars, little wonder self respecting Zambians don’t get involved in Zambian politics. It is much easier for a foreigner than a Zambian to get land in Zambia. The Zimbabwean situation will replay itself in Zambia in future.

  2. Good news. We all need a piece of land back home. Please avail us with more information quickly so that we can directly apply. Gone are the days of sending money to relatives and friends for this purpose. It is better to take the next flight and sort things on the ground than risk embezzlement of transfered funds.

    • Nine Chale
      You are wasting your time.I am in Zambia I have applied for land countless times till I realised that by the time the *****s issue adverts for you to apply for land it has already been shared by themselves and your application is merely for them to show pipo that there were responses to their adverts.The whole of Lusaka has been shared by politicians and their relatives now they are going to outside areas.

    • @Nine Chaos. Just shows how out of touch you are with your relatives. Mine did not let me down. You go abroad and start behaving like you are better than those you left behind.
      And this news is only for getting votes. These guys are afraid, very afraid. It is no news to write home about.

    • @mailon,
      You forgot to include Somalis and Chinese among the people holding tracts of land in Lusaka. The issue of land allocation is being handled in a very wrong way by the GRZ.

  3. There is no need to come back, let them conquer other lands just the same way the Chinese are conquering Africa, how many Europeans do we have in Africa with huge tracts of land, some individuals with land bigger than lusaka urban, let them just bring investment in monetary terms and partner with their cousins in villages with land, some of the stuff that these pfools encourage people to do are so outdated.

  4. The already financially stable zambians abroad are being encouraged to dominate the locals who remained to suffer for zambia. They will be more advantaged than locals when it comes to corruption

  5. The question you ask is, why make such an announcement in Ethiopia, not in Zambia? We have heard such announcements from Mwanawasa, Banda and this government. It has always come to nothing. These guys like to talk the talk. Ignore the announcement as there is likely to be a new government in August which will then make new pronouncements of no consequence. If you want lane, either buy privately from a councillor or pay off a head man or chief. That is the process in Zambia, if you are not from a Royal family or political class.

  6. If at the end of reading this article you are jumping with excitement then I’m afraid you are a gullible ****.

  7. THESE ZAMBIAN POLITICIANS THINK US PEOPLE IN DIASPORA ARE BABIES. RB DUPED US IN THE 2011 ELECTIONS, PROMISING US LAND SO THAT WE VOTE FOR HIM, YET THOSE WERE JUST POLITICAL LIES. NOW LUNGU AND HIS PF THRU THIS GUY IS ONCE AGAIN TRADING IN LIES CONCERNING ACQUISITION OF LAND BY PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF. THIS IS A BLUE LIE. THE ONLY WAY OUT IS FOR US VOTING FOR THE OPPOSITION, TO BE SPECIFIC UPND. ZAMBIA FORWARD WITH UPND.
