Ministry of Lands says it is finalising the review of boundaries with the Government of Zambia.
Principal Secretary in the Ministry, Davie Chilonga said this during a public lecture held in Lilongwe titled: ‘Leveraging new land law for Agenda 2063.’
“From next week lands surveyors, principal secretaries, and ministers from Malawi and Zambia will be meeting in Lusaka for boundary reaffirmation exercise which started 20 years ago. Once we agree, President Dr Lazarus Chakwera and his counterpart Hakainde Hichilema will sign a new boundary treaty for the two nations,” Chilonga said.
Chilonga added that together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they are also engaging Mozambique and Tanzania on issues of boundary reaffirmation.
He said currently, the boundaries are complicated since they were reviewed during the colonial era hence the need for reaffirmation.
