The Zambia Medicines and Medical Supplies Agency, ZAMMSA, says it has resolved a 26 years old land stand-off between the Agency and former Medical Stores Limited, MSL, members of staff concerning the ownership of land in Lusaka’s Makeni area.

In December 1997, the then MSL awarded offer letters to some employees for the purchase of part of the land on subdivision REM67D of Farm 396A in Lusaka’s Makeni area and the matter has dragged for two decades until the current board made a decision during their quarterly meeting held on 19th March 2024.

The ZAMMSA Board of Directors through a resolution have permitted the completion and finalization of the conveyancing process of the land that was sold to employees of its predecessor entity, MSL.

Meanwhile, the ZAMMSA Board has declined the application to grant former Unionized workers the other part of the land in question.

The Board has since resolved to retain the remaining part of the land for the corporation’s use.

“ZAMMSA is happy to have finally closed this issue that has hovered around the Agency for a very long time,” Agency Senior Manager Corporate Communications, Bradley Chingobe  has said in a statement issued in Lusaka today.

Mr. Chingombe thanked all parties involved for exercising patience and tolerance while waiting for closure of the said challenge.
