THE Court of Appeal has ruled that Zambia Air Force Projects Limited resumes work at Kingsland City, as it has complied with the pre-conditions of the Zambia Environmental Management Agency (ZEMA).

This is in a matter in which Chalimbana Headwaters Conservation Trust Limited and nine traditional leaders of the Soli people, who in-clude among others, senior headman Maoma and Princess Cholwe Nkomenshya sued ZAF projects and Kingsland City Investment for carrying out construction on a forest reserve.
Other companies sued include; Drimtown Investments Limited, Shangrila Investments Limited and Datong Construction Limited. And al-so sued is ZEMA, Water Resources Management Authority and the Attorney General.
Chalimbana Headwaters Conservation Trust Limited and others were granted the injunction by Judge Kondolo on February 17, this year.
But according to an affidavit in support of ex-parte summons for an order to discharge an interim in-junction filed in the Court of Appeal on August 20, 2020, ZAF Projects Limited director Colonel Edgar Lungu submitted that the said ruling of the court specified that the injunction could be vacated by ZAF Projects Limited complying with the pre-conditions set out in the decision letter issued by ZEMA dated February 7, 2019.
