He said unscrupulous timber traders believed to be from Lusaka, hired local villagers to indiscriminately  cut high valued mukula trees  for sell in Lusaka or outside Zambia.

He said concerned members of the public alerted his office that  had piled 249 mukula logs in Malaga area, along Lundazi-Kazembe road, chief Zumwanda.

He said upon learning this he alerted his officers who rushed to the area to arrest the culprits but unfortunately the culprits escaped the dragnet.

He said the confiscated mukula logos were at District Forestry Offices in readiness awaiting court action .

He has since warned villagers not to accept unscrupulous people asking them to cut timber without licenses.

  1. Also, talking of sex training at the Gym.
    I was in a gaming club many years ago that was
    below a gym, and I had been talking about joining it, and the other
    people stated it was fairly properly known that it was a gay
    gym. I mentioned I had been? curious about becoming gay, and they said “Go there and you happen to be certain to uncover out!”,
    lol…
