Copperbelt land task-force formed

CHRISTINE CHIHAME, Kalulushi
GOVERNMENT has established a task-force on illegal land allocations and acquisition on the Copperbelt to curb rampant illegal land transactions in the region.
Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Panji Kaunda said in Kalulushi yesterday that Government intends to decentralise the operations of the task force on illegal land allocations and acquisition, which comprises officers from the investigative wings.
Colonel Kaunda, who is chairperson of the task force on illegal land allocations and acquisition, said Government has a zero-tolerance policy on illegal land allocation in the country.
He said the task force consists of officers from the Zambia Police Service, Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) and Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
“Government will not tolerate illegal allocation of land. The suspension of Kitwe, Ndola and Livingstone councils is an indication of our seriousness in ensuring that this problem is brought to an end,” Col Kaunda said.
