Kauma Residents Take Down Brick Fence Barricading a Public Cemetery

Irate residents from Kauma high density area in Lilongwe have physically demolished a brick fence which a businessperson constructed almost making a public cemetery inaccessible.

This is coming only a week after lands minister, Symon Vuwa Kaunda, gave the business person a seven-day ultimatum to bring down the fence or risk government bring it down.
