Mopani Demolishes Illegally Built Houses On Its Mindolo North Land, Leaving Over 600 Families Stranded

Over 600 families in Mindolo North area in Kitwe have been left homeless following the demolition of their houses which were illegally built on Mopani land.

Mopani Copper Mines Public Relations Manager Nebert Mulenga has said the exercise was meant to protect Mopani land, saying the operation was undertaken in the early hours of today.

He said security personnel will continue to guard the secured area until further notice.

Mopani undertook an operation in conjunction with the Zambia Police Service to secure a small part of its concession in the Mindola North area of Kitwe.

Over the past 18 months, some people have illegally demarcated plots of land on Mopani property bordering Itimpi Forest and Mugala Township and extending to the Kalulushi-Sabina road.

Mr Mulenga further said trespassing has continued despite widespread local stakeholder engagements on the associated safety risks of trespassing on mine concessions.

    Incompetence is what is letting people have change, you can imagine how pf leaders starting from the MP going down to a person giving that land to the developer. You mean their wasn’t any agreement? We need change otherwise plundering Won’t finish. I know stubbornness is among failures.

  7. Concern Zambian

    Let us examine the land issue in Zambia. It seems there are some laws which are hindering Zambian to get genuine plots. Could it be that Councils have complicated things that people are failing to get genuine plots. Or is that Councils are corrupt they alocate plots to themslves.Is it that plots are very expensive at council.If this issue is not looked into it will cost pf in 2021. Mind you many Zambians wants to own houses. Poor people are just watching civil servant s and the rich building houses.

  9. Useless leaders in Zambia

    That’s what happens when you give sensitive positions to cadres, qualified persons are out of employment bcoz all duties in councils are given to cadres, starting from DCz down to the council police. It’s high time we kicked the wicked idiots called leaders out power or we will be doomed

    Incompetence (1) police head is useless, their is no way police take that operation without his or her consern (2) law association of Zambia is fake thats why unwanted behaviours are happening due to that money speaks, to conclude the head of state maybe aswereble because he is busy accounting money instead of doing managerial aspects. Please if you were in sata’s shoes why are we felling to notice that? (I know some will turn it as an insult,we need pasters, preachers etc to keep on speaking because David was controlled by a prophet). LET IT BE SO.
