Livimbo not sold, Minister concedes land encroached by Ahmed: Mutharika orders probe

President Peter Mutharika has ordered Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, to probe reports that Livimbo Secondary and Primary Schools’ land has been sold by parallel ‘Lands Office’ as  minister responsible Symon Vuwa Kaunda on Saturday  insisted that government did not sell the school.

“The President is concerned and has directed the ministry to go and dig the official position in the ministry,” said Kaunda.

He, however, said there is no information that the school has been sold.

“Nobody should come here in the name that they have bought the school. If they have documents, those documents are fake and Parents Teachers Association (PTA) should apprehend those people,” he said.

However, the minister admitted the school premises have been encroached  by two Malawians of Asian origin Choonara and Nurmahomed Ahmed and that government will take necessary action.

It was second visit to Livimbo by the minister this week alone to follow up on the reports.

He said according to the 1971 Lands ministry map, the school has been encroached by six metres.

“The plot has really been encroached, six metres of it is where those warehouses are standing, this is illegal and we will take action,” he said.

” This government will not tolerate  or condone encroachment and proper measures are been taken to deal with this tendency” warned the Minister.

Also present at the event was the Education Division Manager for the city whom the Minister gave assurance of the protection of the land.

Parliament’s Legal Affairs and Education committees visited the school on Friday.

Prior to the saga, authorities from Lilongwe City Council  issued a stop  order to Ahmed which he ignored.

The Livimbo saga follows a syndicate that the Lands Ministry busted some few weeks ago where parallel lands office is being run in issuing of fake documents for plost. Seven suspects were arrested in connection with the dubious ‘Lands Office’.

Government will not tolerate or condone encroachment- my foot. Mr Vuwa really? You are not serious. There is encroachment allover in Malawi . Look at how people have built houses and business premises inside road parameters all along our major roads and cities in the country. Your ministry and city councils are doing nothing to stop this malpractice. Stop your lip service. We want action on the ground not talk without action.

Vuwa has no capacity to be a minister, why does APM pick someone like this and Dausi, and Mchacha etc…to be in cabinet? The poor results in the ministries which they are heading are clear for all to see. Rubbish in Rubbish out Mr President.

Just a minute mr Vuwa, last time you visited the school you said Nacy Tembo is a liar becoz the school land is intact, not sold or encroached so what has changed this time? Previous reports showed that the school land has been encroached by almost 20 meters by these well connected scrupulous Asias who are destroying our country in our face and you are telling us that it has only been encroached by 6 meters? Last week you told us a different thing, why not let the technocrats at the land ministry comment on this than you a silly… Read more »
