Malé, Maldives – Malé City Mayor Dr. Mohamed Muizzu on Thursday, expressed concern over the sale of Hulhumalé land to the wealthy, saying that order has been lost.
Dr. Muizzu tweeted saying that commencing the sale of land to the wealthy at high prices, without stabilising the existing lack of shelter for Malé citizens is saddening and that all order has been lost.
During his campaign for the post of Malé City Mayor, Dr. Muizzu pledged to find a solution for the housing problem face by citizens in Malé today. Registration in Malé has been temporarily stopped until a solution is found to the current housing problem.
Although some reports say that the Housing Ministry has decided to commence the sale of Hulhumalé land at high prices, a formal announcement from the ministry is yet to back these claims.
