Minister gives Portuguese businessman 14 days to demolish fence in school land

Government says it has given Portuguese businessman 14 days to demolish a fence at Magwero primary school in Lilongwe for allegedly encroaching the land.

Vuwa Kuanda: He has encroached the land

Minister of Lands Symon Vuwa Kaunda says if the  Malawian of Portuguese origin identified as Almeida only fails to comply with the order, the government will demolish it after the expiry of the notice on December 27.

“He has encroached the land and also started construction without the approval of government,” said Kaunda.

This comes only a week after Lilongwe city council demolished a fence belonging to another Asian businessman at Livimbo school in the capital city for encroaching the government land.

Joint parliamentary committee members of Legal Affairs Committee and Transport and Public Infrastructure on Friday visited the school.

The committee is investigating the alleged sale of the public school land to Almeida.

Chairperson of the committee Kezzie Msukwa said about two acres of the land was illegally sold to Almeida.

He said the committee would summon all relevant stakeholders on the matter to get to the bottom of it.

Livimbo/Area 2 saga has nothing to do with encroachment of public land. It’s some technicalities regarding approvals and warehousing development in a locality no meant for such!

But Govt peddles the story as encroachment.

Just sit Phwi in offices. Minister, Fire them to teach a lesson to would be similar lazy workers. Unless we get rid of the inferiority complex of looking at a White person as bwana and untouchable, we are in for even more serious consequences. Malawians, let us workup. These people come to Malawi very poor in Mapatata as shoes and soon become Bwanas, where on earth, only in Malawi this happens. Ask Idi… Read more »
