Government intervenes in ZRA plot confusion

Government has engaged Chipata Municipal Council to cancel some plots allocated in front of ZRA, Zambia Revenue Authority offices near Saturday market.

Eastern Province Permanent Secretary, Chanda Kasolo told a media briefing yesterday that he has written to the local authority to cancel some of the plots allocated at the ZRA area.

Mr. Kasolo says a similar situation will be taken on plots that have been allocated at St. Anne’s Cemetery because it is not Zambian to build houses at a graveyard.

Mr. Kasolo says the planning of Chipata Town leaves a lot to be desired because of a lot of illegal allocation of plots.

He says the only way that Chipata can have a proper plan is through decentralisation policy, when every document will be acquired from Chipata.

Mr. Kasolo says the current process of getting a proper plan from Lusaka is so complicated that people give up and end up having illegal structures.
