Ndola council demolishes illegal structures


The Ndola City Council has demolished several structures which are illegally being constructed at Chibolela area in Ndola.

Ndola City Council Town Clerk Wisdom Bwalya said the local authority is determined to stop residents who are constructing structures illegally.

Mr. Bwalya said last year, the council had stopped residents from constructing houses at Chibolela area but people have resumed the illegal act on the same land.

He said the demolition exercise is being conducted to control development in the area.

He has warned that those found wanting will be prosecuted.

Mr. Bwalya noted that there were two ways to obtain land legally which are through the Ministry of Lands and from the local authority.

He has since urged the people to follow the right procedure when they want to acquire land.

He said the council has always made it clear to the people on the procedure of acquiring land adding that this is found in circular number 1 of 1985 and article 3 of 2015.
