Residents sue council over repossessed land

TWENTY-SEVEN Kabwe residents have sued the municipal council for allegedly occupying and developing their plots into a bus station without following procedure.

In a statement of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court yesterday, former Luangwa Ward councillor Bernard Chisanga and 26 others say they were successful applicants of the commercial plots in Kabwe’s Lukanga Township.
They state as an agent of the Ministry of Lands, the local authority advertised commercial plots on Great North Road opposite the new shopping mall and the residents applied for the properties.
