Idriss Mutara is a leader of the Muslim community and a representative of some residents who have reacted furiously to the action taken by the Chinese company.
He was away when Chinese company African Brothers, led by Catherine Lu were demolishing the community Mosque.
When he was called for a reaction on the matter, Mutara expressed shock that the Chinese had gone ahead to rase the holy building.
“We never came to any conclusion but I was surprised, last evening I received a letter authorising the Chinese to demolish the Mosque. They connived with the Chongwe Council to get our Mosque.”
