Border demarcation funds sought

About $5.6 million is required to complete demarcating the border between Zambia and Malawi to end persistent encroachment accusations, a report by a joint survey team informed. The money is meant to complete demarcation of the remaining 604 km. According to the lands ministry surveyor-general, Danny Mubanga, there was urgent need for the Malawian and Zambian governments to commit funds to end persistent hostilities on the common land between the two countries. He contemplates that the demarcation of the boundary on the ground would harmonise relations of the communities living on the common border and subsequently create a conductive environment for development.
