  1. I will repeat it. Local government in Zambia is a failed endeavor. Those structures were built on top of underground water pipes during day time . Councillors and engineers from the water company could even see wht was going on. Breaking those structures is a cost to the council. But we always have more money than sense in Zambia. It always doesn’t matter.

  2. This ministry is evil. Why dont they check on people when they are constructing then you come at last to demolish their only source of income when we belive that they have documents from council?
    Please arrest illegal land givers and these are your local council workers before you demolish the structures.
    You also have to compansate those who have council documents.

  3. It is only the sensible thing to do. We are sure a proportionate response to this issue or rather amicable solution will be reached. The ones in wrong should back down. I still remember the issue I had on my land with illegal squatters. It hurts you people.
