(Ecofin Agency) - At Kindia, in Western Guinea, illegal constructions are growing out of proportions. A situation to which prefectural authorities have decided to put an end.

“One cannot get up and decide on his own to become a land owner, or build a property without knowing the parameters involved. Being a landlord is not the same as being a developer or an urbanist. This is a responsibility that befalls the State which provides its support to the people via local elects. Local elects must therefore stand with us to end this phenomenon which is taking over all of Kindia,” said Kalil Touré, prefectural director of urbanism, housing and construction in Kindia, in an interview with news website Guinée Matin.  

The official has in fact already announced sanctions against the perpetrators of the phenomenon.
