Mr. Tembo says the main challenge in the issuance of titles is delayed payments of the minimum amount required.

He said in order to encourage people to pay the Ministry of Lands has embarked on ruffle draws.

Mr. Tembo said 5-thousand kwacha will be given to ten lucky land owners who have paid the minimum amount.

He said the ruffle draws will be done every two weeks up to the end of December 2023.
