Jean Kapata appalled by People in Ndola building Houses in Graveyards

General News Jean Kapata appalled by People in Ndola building Houses in Graveyards

Minister of Lands and Natural Resources Jean Kapata has described as a taboo the move by some unscrupulous people in Ndola to build houses in graveyards.

Ms. Kapata said this today when she called on Copperbelt Minister Japhen Mwakalombe in Ndola.

ZANIS reports that Ms. Kapata has since directed the Copperbelt provincial administration to ensure what she termed as ‘ thugs’ hiding in the name of the party are arrested and charged.

And Mr. Mwakalombe assured the Minister that the province will be on top of things in ensuring that illegalities in land allocation is not entertained.

Mr. Mwakalombe said people should learn to follow the law.

Kawama and Mitengo cemeteries in Ndola have been invaded by unscrupulous people who have built houses in spaces reserved for burying the dead.


  1. My prayer is that brother Kaizer Zulu use a language befitting a child of GOD and a seasoned civil servant. I know he can do it. His passion for Zambia must be exercised with godly wisdom.

  2. We have always told Zambians that these PF cadres and its government do not plan because of corrupt morals they now plan to sleep next to the dead, next will bury within their corruptly acquired houses because they want to look important with stolen wealth. E G Kaizer Zulu pathetic behaviour

  3. This is unacceptable. After making a few calls and demanding answers, I was informed by my intelligence team that majority of those doing this are those who are desperate to build. It has also been revealed that mostly it is those with relatives in diaspora where by the diasporan is sending little money but demanding land and a house. Out of desperation and fear these relatives are cutting corners and building in such areas. Do not worry we are demolishing them all. To my friends in diaspora tough luck all your money wasted on illegal structures

  4. She has lamentably failed at this ministry. Such a critical resource should have been presided over by an independent critical mind with practical solutions. Now all councils might be suspended country wide bcoz the policy formulation capacity simply doesn’t exist.

  5. The Ndola city council needs investigating. They began such corrupt practices long ago when someone at the civic center began allocating all parks and open spaces for plots. Just start looking at the city’s parks from city center to north rise kansenshi Hillcrest and you will find houses being built there nowadays
    Someone corruptly benefited and every one is looking the other way. ACC where are you? Show us how you are working
