The governor of the State has formed a high committee to work together with a demolition committee to ensure that those affected are compensated.
Speaking after the meeting of the two committees today (Wednesday), the chairman of the demolition committee, David Lokonga Moses said that State ministry of physical infrastructure will distribute the land next week.
“The committee is charged with responsibility to make sure that these people are given plots and this is the first priority we are going to do. We have a number of 3,247 people who have already been given tokens but didn’t get their place and we are going to start immediately showing their plots so that they can be able to settle. We have the balance of 921 who are registered but not given tokens. We are going to see that they are considered immediately following the showing of 3,000,” says Lokonga.
Meanwhile Lokanga warned people who build their houses on grabbed land that the structures will be demolished.
