Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa has been invited by World Bank to attend the 20th Annual World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty in Washington DC, United States of America.

The Land and Poverty Conference presents the latest research innovation in policies and good practices on land governance around the world.

The conference has become one of the largest international events on land governance, attracting over 1,500 participants from governments, academics, civil society and the private sector.

This year’s Conference will take place from 25th to 29 March under the theme is “Catalysing Innovation”.

Some of the topics to be discussed are Land policy and political economy, Land markets and structural transformation, Data integration and interoperabity for public service provision.

Others are Institutional innovation and private sector participation, News ways of land data capture and analysis and many more beneficial topics.

LCC City Council stands to benefit from the conference because the Council is currently pursuing land policies which include partnering with the Ministry of Lands to issue titles to land owners in Peri-Urban areas and new ways of data capturing.

Issuance of titles will improve security of tenure for residents and in the long run improve the revenue base for the Council.

The Mayor will be accompanied by two Councillors and Town Clerk.

  3. If Kilometers will be allowed to go, let him go with knowledgeable people lest Zambia becomes a laughing stock because the Guy may start talking about the chicken at the round about and free WIFI

  4. Hope he comes back with the free WIFI he promised as an election incentive. And as @Maloza has rightly indicated, he was not invited. Anyone can apply, pay the registration fee and viola! You have to cover all your own expenses, though. So again the Zambian tax payer is covering his expenses and Lusakans are still waiting for the free WIFI.
    I have no issue with him going, but please fulfill your promises. We will not remain ndwiii forever, muziba ka?

  5. Kilometres will take his concubine the one he took to horseshoe restaurant and racked up a bill of $800. This will be like a vacation for them to enjoy at LCC’s expense.
