Lands Minister Jean Kapata has sent a warning note to alleged ruling Patriotic Front cadres responsible for illegal allocation of land.
Delivering a Ministerial Statement Kapata said she was aware of cadres that had forcibly pushed off legal owners of land off their property and distributed it amongst themselves illegally.
She said that the cadres should not assume they had the protection of the ruling party but will be prosecuted as criminals.
Kapata said the most affected areas were Silverest and Lusaka West.
She said that the issues of land will be dealt with by the Task Force on land.
Matters on land in Zambia have become problematic with some legal owners of land forced off their property through the initiative of cadres.
