The Ministry of Lands, Natural Resources and Environment says it has started the process of repossessing land which has not been developed by title holders for a long time.
In a notice, the Ministry said it wishes to notify the public of its intention to re-enter and withdraw letters of offer for land that is not developed.
It said this is pursuant to section 13 (1) of the lands act, following lessees/ offerees breach of the covenants and conditions of their lease/offer.
“All lessees and offerees whose names and properties appeared in the Zambia Daily Mail Newspaper are supposed to make representation, in writing to the office of commissioner of lands to show cause why the properties should not be repossessed within 90 days.
Check the Zambia Daily Mail Newspaper for details of properties earmarked for repossession.”
