The Zambia Land and Alliance is Confident that the Draft National Land Policy will be validated by the end of year.
The Alliance Executive Director says it is unfortunate that since gaining independence up to date Zambia has had no Policy to create a favorable environment for all to have access to Land.
Patrick Musole feels this has also contributed to violation of Land rights by Political party cadres.
Musole has since appealed to law enforcement agencies to scale up their efforts towards curbing illegalities.
He was speaking during the Land Policy meeting in Lusaka this morning.
The Policy has continued to drag owing to the failure to reach consensus between the Government and the Traditional leadership.
Positively Chiefs have forwarded their concerns which the Minister of Land and Natural Resources Jean Kapata has on several occasions indicated they they are being accommodated in order to finally inclusively adopt the Policy for effective administration of Land Matters in the Country.
