Minister Vuwa warns against corruption in land sale

Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Symon Vuwa Kaunda, has warned his ministry officials in the northern region, against corruption in the sale of land.

Vuwa Kaunda: Warns corrupt land officers

The minister said there is a “perception” that the Land Department is one of the most corrupt entities in the country and said they need to save face.

He made the remarks on Monday at Chatonda Lodge in Mzuzu, during a familiarization tour.

The Minister said anyone found guilty of being dishonesty in land selling will be taken to task and is likely to lose his or her job.

“I have been moving around to see for myself the available plots that members of the public especially in the northern region can apply for.

“His Excellency Professor Peter Mutharika has taken a zero tolerance stand on corruption, so I took time to convey that massage to the officers that the government will not tolerate any officer that is involved in corruption,” Kaunda said.

He warned against prioritizing foreigners in giving out land saying Malawians were entitled to their land.

Acting regional commissioner for lands in the north, Anthony Nzima said his office is constructing roads in different areas where land will be sold.

He said over 800 plots are available in Mzuzu in areas like Katoto, Lunyangwa Extension, Area 6, and Kaning’ina and that selling of land will start in the next three months

Ada Vuwa, Do you remember that you lost K1.4 million to a fraudster Geoffrey Kaunga when he called you and said there is a plot and you needed to pay some money to get it. Was that not corruption when you knew the procedures of acquiring land?

Ofcourse am not fun of you Vuwa Kaunda but when you talk about something which makes sense then I always give appraisal . You are spot on more especially on these lands officials, they are so corrupt to the extend making people fight each other for the same piece of land. I remember the other time I bought a piece of land in Lilongwe , we were 4 people fighting for the same plot and luckily enough out of 4 I became triumph. The same as well happen in Blantyre and Mzuzu. Plz save Malawi from these hard core corrupt… Read more »
