LCC warns on sand mining

Lilongwe City Council (LCC) has warned that illegal sand mining and cultivation on public land will result in fines and imprisonment.

In a statement, LCC Chief Executive Officer, Macloud Kadammanja, says mining without permission is an offence and the council will confiscate unauthorized sand heaps.

The council also says crops grown on public land will be destroyed during the next maize planting season without compensation.

These actions aim to enforce the Environment Management Act of 2017, the council says.
