Address land boundary wrangles – Wina
By Staff Reporter
Vice President Inonge Wina has called for concerted efforts from both the village headmen and chiefs if encroachments in the boundaries of traditional land are to be curtailed.
Speaking when she paid a courtesy call on chief Chipepo of the Lenje people in Kapiri Mposhi, Central Province, Wina said encroachments should be curtailed because settlers needed to be given authority by the traditional leadership before they could settle in a chiefdom.
And chief Chipepo raised some concerns which included a boundary dispute in his area which he said had been going on for years now.
“There has being a lot of misunderstanding in the boundaries for years now but we are doing everything possible to work on the challenges we have being facing,” said chief Chipepo.
The tradition leader also appealed for extension of the road under construction in his chiefdom.
Wina commended the tradition leader for allocating part of his land for the resettlement scheme.
“Government has prioritised working on the road to easy the movement of people and produce to the market. I’m assuring that government would find resources to extend the road so that it goes beyond the resettlement,” said Wina.
