DID the Ndola City Council have to wait for instructions from the Ministry of Water Development, Sanitation and Environmental Protection to destroy houses in close proximity to Kafubu River?
Where was the local authority when people were building?
Where was the local authority when some people moved into those houses?
Where were the local authority’s building inspectors? Didn’t they see people digging foundations?
Should the council wait for central government to move? What is the mandate of the local authority?
What has happened in Ndola is very regrettable.
The council should not only find those people whose houses were destroyed alternative land but also compensate.
Where are human rights lawyers to help the displaced?
