By Staff Writer
The Ndola City Council says they are not undertaking any demolition exercise in Bwana Mkubwa.

The Local authority wishes to inform the public and all stakeholders that the local authority is not demolishing any property today in Bwana Mkubwa area as purported by social media reports.

NCC Public Relations Manager Rebecca Mushota said the Council has taken note of social media reports claiming that the local authority is among other entities demolishing thousands of houses in Bwana Mkubwa and that the Council’s equipment has been caught up in riots and burnt.

Ms Mushoto said that the Council wishes to clarify that it is not involved in any demolition exercise and no Council property has been damaged in any incidence today.

She said the Council took note of the social media reports and made inquiries and has learnt that some Court bailiffs this morning went to an area in Bwana Mkubwa Constituency to execute an order of taking possession of land which belongs to a private entity.

“The Council wishes to inform all entities that in the future, the Council will appreciate prior notification of any demolition exercise as a planning authority,” she said.
