Encroachers grab Malawi army land in Zomba

Malawi Defense Forces (MDF) officials in Zomba are in a fix and scratching their heads in disbelief after encroachers grabbed the army land.

The encroachers have taken over prime land on Cobbe Barracks grounds.

MDF officials say they have engaged lands authorities to resolve the land encroachment issue.

They said the land was reserved for war veterans.

The development comes amid several exposed land scams involving some officials at lands who illegally sell government plots to private developers.

As the Administration Unit second-in-command responsible for the war veterans at Cobbe Barracks Urunji Mkandawire explains, the issue is now being handled at Army headquarters’ level in Lilongwe

O Chakwera chonde impunity mungoyiyang”ana anthu akulanda malo a eni.Pakadafunda padadyiwitsa galu baba.Bwanji mukulekerera zinthu zikulakwika chonchi odala?Bomatu timanjata osati kulekelera mwati alapa ayi tere .Kaya popeza mwana aklira nyanga ya msatsi msemere.Apa yiyamba kukufoterani mmanja chifukwa dziko lonse maso pa imwe.

These plots were sold by the most corrupt Lands official Mr Lungu. This guy has made millions from selling lands illegally and some sometimes splitting low density plots to several buyers especially in Kalimbuka. That is why you find a huge house being built in a very small plot. That is Lungu for you. He needs to be investigated though the whistleblower HRDC

What foolishness is this. Investigating what? That is Army land which means the seller and buyer are all thieves. Pick them up and send them to Malaysia. Period.
