Communities fear eviction following discovery of minerals

Communities residing in areas targeted for mineral explorations and development of resort cities are living in fear of being displaced, a new survey shows. Land experts have, however, assured them that there is no need to panic as the country has new legal mechanisms to adequately address their concerns. According to a new survey by the Land Development and Governance Institute (LDGI), communities in the lower Eastern and upper Eastern regions are concerned that they might end up losing out to organisations with mining interests as well as new investments driven by emerging resort cities in their respective areas.
