Illegal land allocation probe on


THE task force on illegal land allocations and acquisition is investigating about 173 complaints over contentious land transactions across the country.
Task force chairperson Panji Kaunda, who is also deputy minister of Home Affairs, said the Taskforce will not hesitate to demolish structures built on illegally acquired land.
“No one is authorised to buy or sell land, which is illegally acquired and anyone found wanting will be prosecuted,” Col Kaunda said.
This is according to a statement issued yesterday by task force spokesperson Moses Suwali.
Col Kaunda said illegal acquisition of land is treated as stolen property and anyone who buys or sells such pieces of land will be guilty of possession of stolen property.
