Zambia’s economic growth is pushing demand for land under customary law.

The economic growth of the country is reportedly putting new and more pressures on customary land in Zambia.
Chipata District Land Alliance Coordinator, Allan Kasongo, observed that the situation is worsened by the growth in population.
In a statement, Mr. Kasongo says that this has resulted in increased land disputes, social and demography pressures.
Mr. Kasongo says that boundary disputes among farmers, chiefs and village headmen and women are becoming more common.
He explained that this is worsened because farmers and land owners have no documentation to claim their right of land under customary law.
Mr. Kasongo says that soon his organization with help from USAID’s tenure and Global Climate Change, will start engaging people in some chiefdoms in Chipata to educate them on matters of land tenures.
