United Party for National Development (UPND) 2021 Lusaka Central Aspiring candidate, Mulambo Haimbe has condemned the demolition of makeshift stores by unruly Patriotic Front (PF) cadres in Lusaka’s Bauleni compound this morning.
And Counsel Haimbe has pledged to help the victims affected by the illegal act by ensuring that the law was followed to the latter by ensuring all legal avenues were exhausted in order to safeguard the source of livelihood of traders.
Commenting after a spot check on the demolished structures, Counsel Haimbe stated that it was unfair for the PF, who have failed to provide decent trading spaces for traders to start demolishing structures belonging to poor marketeers in the country.
Unruly ruling Patriotic Front (PF) cadres this morning swung into action in Lusaka’s Bauleni township and demolished makeshift stands known as “tuntemba” belonging to 7 women near Bauleni Community Police Post.
Counsel Haimbe stated that it was shocking that that the said cadres have since ferried building materials and were preparing to start putting up structures on the said land.
The affected women, who include widows and other differently abled persons, bemoaned the loss of their only source of livelihood, stating that they put up their structures at a huge cost.
And an attempt to ascertain whether the land in question has been legally allocated to the cadres in question by the Lusaka City Council (LCC) proved futile by press time as officers spoken to at the scene expressed ignorance over the matter.
