FILE: NDOLA City Council (NCC) buried more than 40 demarcated plots allocated illegally on Mitengo graveyard reserve. Unknown people had encroached on the grave yard and started building houses on illegal plots.

Bwanamkubwa Constituency Member of Parliament Jonas Chanda has called on Ndola City Council to ensure that the illegal allocation of plots by unscrupulous individuals who are forging charge sheets is addressed.

Dr. Chanda stated that the council should with the help of the Zambia Police move in quickly and arrest the situation because some people are illegally issuing charge sheets with impunity hence depriving the council and government of revenue.

The recent Auditor General’s Report on Councils tabled in Parliament had put Ndola City Council in very bad light and there is need to fix that reputation of the local authority in Ndola.

ZANIS reports that the parliamentarian who said this yesterday during a community meeting held in Ndola’s Mushili township consequently called for a permanent solution to illegal land allocation and wrangles which has affected the residents in the constituency

Dr Chanda also expressed disappointment at the delayed construction of the Old Mushili Market by a Lusaka-based contractor which he said has taken over two years.

He noted the displacement of marketeers at old Mushili market was creating a potential public health disaster with the approaching rain season.

And Ndola City Council Acting Town Clerk Wisdom Bwalya has appealed to the people of Mushili to be wary of unscrupulous people who are selling land as such a mandate is only given to the council to manage land on behalf of the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources.

Mr Bwalya said Mushili is one of the areas with most land issues and there was need to sensitize the residents on land acquisition in order to avoid the illegal dealings.

Meanwhile, Ndola City Council Director of Engineering Mr Patrick Simuchimba informed the residents that the Council has written to Triple V contractor many times over the market issue and has since written to Ministry of Local Government recommending for termination of the contract.

  1. You cannot expect anything less than this from the corrupt PF leadership. The country is a failed state. The shambles pertaining in land regulation is just so painful to see as a zambian. When you have pf cadres forcefully obtaining land which people have paid for and have title deeds to, leaves a lot to be desired. The country is now lawless. The pf will continue exploiting resources for their own benefits while the tax paying zambian goes without even basic needs of life. Animal farm indeed— we beg you to vote UPND for change. hope you have learned lesson

    • That’s clueless Lungu’s administrative skills right there. Complete chaos. No law and order. Recently, absurd as it may sound, they had to hire an American company to manage land affairs in Zambia. Clueless Lungu and his gang have completely failed to fix the land issue in Zambia, and thus unbridled corruption runs rampant not only in Ndola, but the whole country. By the time clueless Lungu leaves office, Zambia would’ve completely been sold to the highest bidder. What a shame.
