The Lusaka High has set February 11, 2019 as the date for determining whether to allow appointed Administrators to the late Gender Minister Victoria Kalima authority to sale part of the deceased’s property or not in order to offset some debts that she left.
Kalima died with writing a will.
High Court Judge Annie Sharpie Phiri is expected to hear and determine the application on February 11.
The administrators who are sisters to the deceased identified as Mutiyo and Alice Kalima indicated in their affidavit that it has become necessary to sale the properties due to the fact that the deceased amassed some debts which they feel duty bound as administrators to offset in order to ascertain the exact value of the estate of the late Kalima as required by the intestate succession Act.
According to the court documents the targeted properties are fou plots standing on No . 18160 /M , 18159/M , Plot LN -37087/90 and 11926/M/9 .
The deceased IS survived by two children aged between 12 and 23 who are the lawful beneficiaries of the estate and have also been allegedly consulted over the desirability to sale the properties.
Meanwhile, The Court has also set April 16 for hearing in the case in which Luanshya Mayor Nathan Chanda was sued for encroaching on a piece of land belonging to orphans.
