Timber Millers challenge Chikangawa Forest closure

22

The decision to have Chikangawa Forest closed seems to have angered timber millers as they have opted to seek a court injunction restraining the ban on cutting trees in the forest.

Nine timber milling companies through their lawyer George Diverson Kadzipatike have challenged the closure arguing that they have matured trees on their land ready for harvest.

Chikangawa Forest was closed last week.

The Mzuzu high court has since given additional three months for the companies to harvest the trees.

Reacting on the matter, spokesperson for the department of natural resources, Sangwani Phiri said the companies were served with notices of closure of Viphya plantations popularly known as Chikangawa.

Phiri added that the notice also disclosed that the forest will be ready in April 2017 to allow growth of small trees in the forest.
