NCD still without Lands Board : Parkop

NCD Governor Powes Parkop has expressed frustration over the Lands Department over its delay in creating a Land Board for NCD.

He said the NCDC does not have a Land Board in place which has resulted in the sale and allocation of certain portions of land in NCD without proper consultations from the National Capital District Commission.

“This is stealing and corruption at the highest level which NCDC have been unable to stop because it is always too late when we receive reports of land allocations and is costing the Commission a lot in legal bills,” he said.

Governor Parkop said NCDC has written a letters to the Lands Minister to appoint a land board for the Commission but was rejected.
He revealed that when NCD has a Land Board in place, this will allow for Land Owners as well as the State to lease lands themselves with proper consultations from NCDC.
The Governor is now calling on the Prime Minister to meet with the Department and address this ongoing issue.
