Parliamentary committee seeks lands documents for Livimbo school

Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee has told the government to show land documents for Livimbo Community Day Secondary School in Lilongwe after reports it had been sold to two Malawians of Asian origin.

Msukwa: Committee seeks documents for the land

The Education and Legal Affairs committees members on Friday visited the school to make its assessment.

Kezzie Msukwa said the committee would seek legal action should the ministry of Lands fail to produce the documents.

Msukwa said the committee has since summoned officials from the ministries of Lands and Education, Lilongwe city council, Surveyors General and the Anti-Corruption Bureau to hear their side of the story on the matter.

Some members of the committees said preliminary investigations show that part of the land where the school is was sold and new structures for the private owner are standing.

The committees chairpersons refused to comment on the issue, saying a statement would be released.

But one member who was on the trip said part of the school has been encroached by 20 metres and new structures, warehouses have been erected.

The two committees were also told how the new owner was bothering the school committee and management to vacate the place as he wants to develop the area.

This comes barely a day after Lands minister Symon Vuwa Kaunda saod that the land is not sold and described Nancy Tembo, member of the Legal Affairs Committee who spilt the beans as a liar.

The issue of ownership of the Livimbo School land came to light on Tuesday during a meeting between Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament and a Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development delegation when Tembo said the public school was sold.

Meanwhile, Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) director general Reyneck Matemba said the graft-busting body is launching a probe on the alleged sale of a government secondary school land.

Two weeks ago, Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development busted a parallel ‘Lands Office’ in Lilongwe which transacted and sold plots with counterfeit documents. Seven suspects were arrested in connection with the dubious ‘Lands Office’.

The legal affairs Committee must ask the sleeping ACB to go deeper into investigations about Land issues.The Ministry of Lands Officials have been using our Land as the income generating activity for DPP Cadets who in turn have been selling our Land to Asians.This is an open secret. ACB must wake up or stop wasting our tax money.

The mentioned two buildings (warehouses) are in the Neighbour’s plot built by two Malawian’s of Asian origin.

It is NOT in Livimbo plot. This plot belongs to Royal Motors.

How on earth can a whole Govt school be sold without proper docs. It’s not just possible .

The officials investigating are wasting there time and inciting hatred towards the Asian community who normally follow the laws of the country.

Pse do not bring politics in such issues.

Just keep quiet and wait for the outcome of the committee’s investigation. If your hands are clean you will surely be exonerated otherwise you will face the law of the land

I am beginning to be proud again of being a Malawian. Ntchito ya parliament ndi imeneyi. Checks and balances osati kuwombera mmanja zinthu zopusa. At least we are now waking up. We are heading in the right direction. In this way corruption can be reduced very fast. Osati kumagawana nawonso ngati zija anachita abusa zija ayi, If wrong ayitaneni adzapange justify and if inu otiyimilira mukavomera dziko likoma ili. These comettees should work. Koma makosana this is not easy mwayiyambayi ndi nkhondo. Koma tili pa mbuyo panu.Tinakutumani tigwilireni ntchito chonde anthu atigulitsatu awa.

It’s sad that Vuwa Kaunda should label a fellow member of parliament “liar” at this early stage of the issue. It only shows he is forgetting because, perhaps, he and some high ranking officials from State House maybe are part and parcel of the land selling scum. Have you noticed lately how much fencing of empty plots is going on these days?

We will reclaim all ill-gotten plots very soon. Bonafide owners need not fear.
