United Prosperous and Peaceful Zambia (UPPZ) leader Charles Chanda has condemned the creation of new districts, describing it as a waste of public resources.

Chanda says that resources being used to create districts should be used to improve the living standards of Zambians.

He said during a Political Hour Programme on Breeze FM, that only a few people who get jobs in the public service are benefiting from new districts.

Chanda promised that if voted as President in 2021 general elections, he will reverse the creation of districts in the country.

And the opposition leader says every Zambian should have the opportunity to own land because the country has enough land for every citizen.

Chanda states that Zambia’s current laws on land ownership are weak because a foreigner, who has not even lived in Zambia, can own land using a company registered online through PACRA.

He disclosed that he has been buying land in all the ten provinces of the country, which he is reselling at a cheaper price to ensure that Zambians are empowered.

Meanwhile Chanda has appealed to voters in Kasenengwa Constituency to ensure that they vote for UPPZ candidate Abel Ngwenya in the September 6 by-election.

  1. My own reasoning tells me that creating new districts is the same as building infrastructures to allow people in all parts of the country to access some needed communications with the government and also create jobs for local communities .
    Any government should find ways of accommodating every citizen in the nation than just be interested in only few people living in towns ignoring those villages.
