Mufulira land grabbers warned

MONICA KAYOMBO – Ndola
MUFULIRA mayor Thomson Ngulube has warned of stern action against any council workers and members of the public engaging in illegal allocation of land.
Mr Ngulube said yesterday the council will not take the illegality lightly.
“These people involved in illegal land allocation are interfering in the initial site plans of the council. But I want to assure the people of Mufulira that the council will not hesitate to demolish any structures put up on the land that is obtained illegally,’’ Mr Ngulube said.
He urged those who want to be allocated land to go to the council directly and not to rely on people claiming to be agents for the local authority.
Meanwhile, Mr Ngulube has also called on property owners and other clients to pay the land rates and other council levies to enable the council operate effectively.
He said the Mufulira Municipal Council has recorded high default rates in land rates and other levies, making it more difficult for the local authority to function effectively.
