Dr. Chanda says it is uncalled for that people can share plots on land that is supposed to house a secondary school.
“There are unscrupulous people who have encroached on land reserved for the construction of a modern high school in Mushili township. These enemies of development and enemies of the people have illegally allocated plots on this land in a township with a population of over 80,000 people who badly need development,” he lamented.
“A few months ago, I invited Minister of General Education Honourable David Mabumba to this site as well as to Kansengu Primary and Twikatane Basic schools which are planned for upgrade to grade 12 level,” Dr. Chanda complained.
He continued, “I’m calling on the city planners, Ndola City Council and Ministry of General Education in Ndola District, to officially report these criminals encroaching on development land to Zambia Police. I’m also reporting these enemies of development to Zambia Police and calling on them to enforce the Law.”
He has, however, commended the residents of Mushili for acting to stop the illegality.
“I also want to thank the alert residents of Mushili township for acting promptly to stop these land encroachers. Mushili township is already receiving massive development in form of a huge water network project under Kafulafuta Water Supply Project, construction of a modern police station under Constituency Development Fund (CDF), planned construction of a modern First Level Referral Hospital by JICA in collaboration with the Government of the Republic of Zambia, and new markets and roads by Government,” Dr. Chanda said.
