  1. Why do we always rush to give land to anything that comes in the country and claims to be an investor, don’t tell me that land you have given out there is absolutely no one was occupying or using that land for other social and economic benefits, why can’t this locals own the land while the investors can pump in the finance ,do you know that the biggest taxi company in the world does not own taxi but has just partnered with taxi own, do you know that you can own cattle without owning a farm,

    • They steal in the name of investors.

      If title deeds are given, it will be 99 years before this land is released back to the citizens of our country.

  3. Oooh this country,@1 is thinking outside the box and some people are voting him down!! This land we are giving out “freely” ( of course corruptly,just look at the name of the MP/Minister involved) will make us slaves in our own country.His/her concern is genuine,what stake are the original traditional occupants going to have in the so called investment that will displace them!? We should be looking at them being automatic share holders in the investment other wise we are blaming to perpetual servitude and poverty! It’s a shame,We are losing our country!

  4. As long as land is given to zambians, we will have no quarrels. Land is a greatest asset any country can boast about. Let the so called investors partner with locals when it comes to land development. The 99yrs land lease given to foreigners is tantamount to selling our future and eventually our children will be slaves in their own country because we are wide awake robbing them the land ownership rights. Let us wake up.
