Govt Yet To Receive Chiefs’ National Land Policy Recommendations

Lands Minister Jean Kapata says her Ministry is still waiting to hear recommendations from the Traditional leaders on National Land Policy.

Ms. Kapata says the Traditional leaders held an indaba to further analyze the draft land policy and come up with recommendations to submit to government for consideration.

She has told Q-news that her ministry will not give traditional leaders a time frame but will wait to hear from them once they are done analyzing the draft National Land Policy.

Ms. Kapata has maintained that the proposed Land Policy will bring to an end the “chaotic” land allocation in Zambia.

She says government will not tolerant any form of injustices in the allocation of land because it is every Zambian’s right to have access to land thus the National Land policy is key in addressing such issues.

Ms. Kapata says it is important that Zambia safe guards its land and natural resources for the generations to come.
