Chibombo Rocked by Land Wrangles

The land disputes between the community in Chibombo area and a Chinese investor, CHEN-GUAN, have continued, which saddens Central Province Minister CREDO NANJUWA.

Mr. NANJUWA said during a meeting in Chibombo to break the deadlock that it is ineffective to keep bringing up the same issue.

According to Mr. NANJUWA, the government can only assist traditional leaders if they do it in a truthful manner.

He said that it is the responsibility of the government to attract investment, but not at the expense of the local population, and that fighting investors is not the way to go.

Senior Village Headman MULONSHA, meantime, has refuted claims that he is selling land, stating he was astonished to discover drainage systems being built in his community.

Even his farming lands and animal grazing land have been lost, the traditional elder lamented.
