    • But how did title deeds get issued by the ministry of land? Who paid PTT on these transactions as vendor?

      I mean even the president himself KZ nearly had his land stolen in Mikango.

      And yet Jean Kapata remains mute on this issue.

      Anyway, good work Lusambo but do not stop there. Expose even more illegal deals being done by your colleagues and make sure police make arrests.

    • @1.1 Indigo Tyrol
      I can tell your own properties in Zambia….Yes was wondering also who paid PTT because ZRA is also involved so it means the whole Ministry of Lands is corrupt…

    • Good job only that next time stop them before they build. HAZALUZA HAGAIN. Let him build in NAMWALA and PANAMA. I am talking about the PRIVATISATION THIEF.

  1. Unbelievable! How costly for the people who built on Munali Secondary school land. But, I suppose, they will be fully compensated as title deeds are only issued by the government, right?

  2. WOW THIS IS GOOD NEWS FOR ME, ACTUALLY WHEN PEOPLE BLASTED AT LUSAMBO, I SUPPORTED HIS GREAT MOVE ALL THE WAY……PEOPLE SHOULD LEARN LESSONS.

  3. There is an element of simple solution to complex problems. This is catastrophic for families to end up homeless. The correct thing to do is for police to stop any builder without building permit. When the building/s are already completed, with or without a permit then it is illegal to move the builder/s without compensation. Key players are Ministry of Lands and Lusaka City Council. For these two entities to function efficiently, there is need for public support. Munali Secondary Headmaster: where was s/he when builders appeared from nowhere? In every move, Government has the responsibility to show maximum restraint and endeavor to protect human rights.

  4. The whole system is rotten from the head to the tail . All the prime land has been taken and shared by ministers and the likes of KZ and those with associations to the PF . No one stands a chance of getting land near to Lungu or KZ’s property because they jump the queue .Now we have ministry of land officials offering people land belonging to a secondary school to make money out of it .This land issue is tinged with dirty money because much of the land has been taken up by the likes of abena Lusambo .

  5. There is a reason behind the decision that was made by the Government to demolish the structures built on Munali school of Lusaka , please lets not condemn whatever decision the Government makes am pretty sure that these people will be compensated.

  6. This is a good move. @Zennia the structures there were illegal and were not meant to help the school in any way, the land was given to the school to be used for academic developmental purposes so if they have to be demolished, it means those structures were not at all related to the plan.

    • Replying to @The Turf – Sure. If they don’t have title deeds, then am afraid they have no right to build on the land, they are, in effect, squatters. On the other hand, if they hold title deeds issued by authorized personnel in the government, it’s only right that they’re compensated.

  7. Is there a court order to demolish the structures. Don’t be fooled those structures will be there. Who owns the structures? Another 51 houses saga?

  8. The same government issued title deeds to these people in exchange for votes and now they have no use for them so the same government orders the demolition of the structures which were not supposed to be there in the first place.

  9. Guarantfunds @ no. 6 you are a 419 fraud Nigerian star please people never apply any loan this guy is fake or you will lose all your money if you try you Nigerians stay away from zambia and Lusaka times should be deleting these kind of posting which are out of topic.

  10. Before demolitions, let government expose and deal with its own officers who alocatted muesli land. I am sure Lusambo has no hands in munali and can champion the exercise.. Let us bring in an area where PF are deep rooted like there forests 27 and Petauke

  11. I left that school as a Boys only, what happened
    Our neighbors were Tunduya Primary school.
    Who remembers that girl Lute from Tunduya!!!
