Minister Bans Plot Allocation by Council

Lands minister Wilbur Simuusa has banned local councils from allocating plots on unserviced plots with immediate effect.

Simuusa said that councils should ensure plots are serviced with roads, electricity and water before they can offer them to people for purchase.

He said most of the illegal land development in Zambia has been created by the unserviced plots that have been offered to Zambians.

Simuusa said the councils should be able to apply for land development fund from his office and provide the necessary services before offering them out.
