The Ndola City Council would has denied allocating land to Chinese Nationals at Masansa Forest, opposite the New Medical Stores.
Following various media reports the Local Authority management and Mayor Amon Chisenga conducted a site visit last week in the accompaniment of Bwana Mukubwa Member of Parliament Dr. Jonas Chanda to ascertain the alleged land allocation to Chinese Nationals in the said vicinity.
During the site visit, beacons and limestone markings were noticed indicating that the site had been demarcated.
However, the technical survey by the Ndola City Council Planning Department has revealed that the area in question is in Luanshya District and not Ndola as reported by some sections of the media.
Ndola City Council Public Relations Manager Tilyenji Mwanza has clarified that it is not the planning authority for the said piece of land in question as the land falls entirely in the jurisdiction of Luanshya Municipal Council.
She said the Council has never planned, offered or demarcated land in the Masansa Forest neither has it facilitated for processing of any title deed and thus all reports pointing to the Local Authority are not true.
