MDF, Villagers Tussle Over Land In Lilongwe

Date:

It is on record that the Commander of Malawi Defense Force (MDF) General Vincent Nundwe is facing contempt charges and possible arrest in a land dispute between villagers of Chilota at Njewa in the capital Lilongwe and the MDF Airforce department.

According to reports, two weeks ago, soldiers from the Airforce department at Airwing invaded the land and beat up villagers they found tending to their fields. They shared the customary land among themselves.

Lawyer representing the villagers, Enoch Chibwana, has said he has written to the Attorney General to act within seven days by way of advising the MDF against forceful acquisition of the piece of land next to the old airport.

Two weeks ago, soldiers from MDF spokesperson major Paul Chiphwanya admitted that the land belongs to the villagers but they are in discussions with traditional leaders there to acquire the land.
