Hakainde Hichilema introduces land reform

Zambian President, Hakainde Hichilema is set to revise the land policy to make it more favourable for its citizens than foreigners.

Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Elijah Muchima said going forward there will be a distinction in the way land is allocated to Zambians and foreign nationals.

The minister, who toured various farming blocks in Serenje District, expressed concern with the sale of land by the locals to foreign nationals at give away prices.

He said foreign nationals are owning land as much as 5 thousand hectares.

Muchima urged Zambians to safeguard their land because it is an important asset that increases in value and must be protected for the future generation.
