Speaking soon after a two hours meeting with the Minister of Land Symon Vuwa Kaunda, the parliamentarian said  he went to see the Minister after intense pressure from his constituents who had demanded to see justice on the matter.

He said people in his area are worried and surprised to see a brick fence just in the grave yard.

Jiya  said the people have threatened to dump the dead bodies behind the fence of the developer of the land.

“They are ready to start dumping the dead bodies in the fence but before that we are demanding that the Minister should intervene and sort this out,” he said.

In his response, Minister of Lands Vuwa Kaunda promised to demolish the fence on Thursday  19 December, 2019.

He said he is over saddened with the levels of encouragement happening in this country.

Vuwa has since warned that his ministry will deal with the rot in land ownership.

This place was sold to Loga long time ago. The MP here is being misguided. He is taking a populist stance. Manda amenewonso anatseka kalekale.
