The Forestry Department confiscates over 3,000 logs of Mkula tree after owner fails to produce authority documents.

The Forestry Department in Chipata has resolved to confiscate the 3, 864 logs of Mkula, which it impounded from a Chinese national last week.
This follows failure by the Chinese national only identified as Thom to submit to the department authority documents, which he used to procure the logs.
Acting Principal Forestry Officer, Sylvester Siame told Breeze News that the department cannot trace the Chinese national and that his phones are still off.
He says that according to information gathered so far, Thom is believed to be in Mozambique.
And Mr. Siame says that the department has received a report that some people want to temper with machines that were used to cut the timber at a named farm along Magwero road.
He says that the Forestry Department will move the logs from the farm to the district offices since they can never be auctioned.
