Accordingly, the Lands Ministry is establishing a Taskforce to investigate these violations comprehensively. Working closely with the Ministry of Environment, the Ministerial Taskforce will ensure that the Tambi Wetland remains safeguarded against any further violations.

The Taskforce will also, guide strategic actions to prevent future unauthorized transactions and preserve the Tambi Wetland’s serene ecosystem.

Crucially, the Ministry of Lands is committed to safeguarding this invaluable natural resource for future generations and will take all necessary measures to ensure its preservation.
