Houses built on road reserves demolished


A SPECIAL Taskforce has demolished several illegal structures built on a road reserve to stop land encroachment, says Patriotic Front (PF) Mandevu Constituency Ngwerere Ward 19 councillor, Adrian Banda.

Mr Banda told the Daily Nation yesterday that most of the structures were built on Pendela Road while others were built on sewer and water lines.

“Our mission is to bring order in our community so for those who have built on top of a drainage system the local authority will visit your places,” he warned. Mr Banda said the move to pull down the structures follows numerous complaints from residents in the area regarding land encroachment. He explained that it was illegal to encroach on land and construct without a building permit from the local authority. Mr Banda said the Taskforce would be reporting direct to the Ward Development Committee chairperson and his office.
