Zambia: Masebo in Land Wrangle

The residents tried to protest against Masebo by raising the matter to the attention of President Michael Sata but Masebo swiftly sent armed police officers to block them.

The furious residents complained why an area Member of Parliament can be so heartless to consign over 1,600 families to homeless citizens.

But Masebo described the people who voted her into office as lawless citizens and that she would not tolerate their behavior.
