Residents encroach cemetery

CENTRAL Province permanent secretary Edwidge Mutale is disappointed that some developers have allegedly been given plots in Mpima Cemetery in Kabwe.
Ms Mutale said in an interview yesterday that trespassing on a cemetery is a serious matter, adding that any developments in the area should be stopped and culprits in illegal land allocation be prosecuted.
A recent check at Mpima Cemetery found some developers who have been allocated plots clearing the area in readiness for building projects.
Kabwe Municipal Council town clerk Ronald Daka said the municipality is also concerned because it has not given residential plots in the area and that the matter has been reported to police.
