Chiefs, Councils To Disseminate Correct Information About Amended Land Laws

The Ministry of Lands says there’s a need for district council members and traditional leaders to disseminate accurate and correct information to the public as they represent the government in their respective districts.

Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Lands, Kwame Ngwira, was speaking in Mzuzu during an orientation workshop for chiefs and executive council members on the amended land laws.

Ngwira said the provisions in the new laws are very beneficial to indigenous Malawians, unlike the old ones.

“This new law gives chance to indigenous Malawians to own land in Malawi. Foreigners can only sublease land through Malawi Trade and Investment Centre (MITC) for investment purposes for some time. The Minister of Lands has powers to take undeveloped private land and revert it to customary to benefit Malawians,” explained Ngwira in part.

District Commissioner for Rumphi, Emmanuel Bulukutu, called on the government to establish a fund in district councils to assist in the administration of compensations for land-related cases.

“In Malawi 2063 land is an enabler of the three pillars of agriculture commercialisation, industrialisation and urbanisation. So to fast-track this, the government should put a deliberate fund to assist councils to manage compensations of land issues so that land should be available to investors,” said Bulukutu.

The workshop drew together Senior Chiefs and senior members of councils in the Northern Region of Malawi.
