An angry mob from Makanda village in the area of TA Mwase in Kasungu has vandalised property of a man they accuse of grabbing a village forest.
The villagersÂ have been tussling with Msusa Zimba over a piece of land they claim is the village forest.
But Zimba claims the land belonged to his father and the issue was taken to court.
Eye witnesses have told us that the angry villagers descended on Zimba’s residence in the wee hours of today, damaging houses, and looted fertilizer and maize bags.
In a telephone interview from his hiding place, Zimba said six houses and a car have been vandalized among others.
“I have lost everything…, ” he says.
Kasungu police spokesperson , Edna Mzingwitsa, says police are on the ground to calm the tension.
“We have arrested two people at the moment but officers are on the ground. That value of the damaged property is yet to be known,” she said.
