Shocking details are emerging in Traditional Authority Dambe in Mchinji where a village known as Kachoka was allegedly sold in June 2019.

Trouble Kalua: Quits as SRFL vice chairman

Currently, over 200 families are facing eviction as the new owner wants to develop the area.

Group village headman Kachoka told Nyasa Times that a son to late chief Kasoka who died in 1996 sold the land claiming it belonged to his father.

The chief added that a primary school and a graveyard were sold together with the land.

Deputy director of Legal Aid Bureau Trouble Kalua also confirmed that the locals lodged a complaint with the office and a stay order has been obtained following an enforcement order that was obtained by the buyer Frank Chisakalimi in June this year to have the villagers vacate the area.

The villagers have also lodged a complaint with Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) on the matter.

Where is the uproar Mr gift and his entire hrdc?! So you like to pick and choose as to which cases you want to comment on and hold press conferences?! An entire village is being evicted including a graveyard and school and you stay quiet even after they have approached you! Yet if the buyer was otherwise not Malawian(mwenye) then I am sure you would have immediately asked for a press briefing and also let’s be honest the comments here would be entirely different but that is the honest truth.

This guy so called Frank Chisakalimi , I think that he doesn’t think properly cos on earth how can someone, an individual tells you that is selling the whole village claiming that it is his land???? And you pay money with an intention to remove all the people. That can never work

Majaza should be at the helm of all this shit. Frank has money but no education while Majaza was influenced by the regime then. No wonder the daughter became a minister

So This fool ( the buyer) did t realize that there is a whole village on this land? Is he planning to compensate the villagers for displacement, emotional trauma and illegal sell of the land which is probably ALL THEY HAVE!
