All street vendors in Lusaka including those on Lumumba road and Freedom way are expected to leave the streets in Seven days.
Lusaka Province Minister Gerry Chanda says he is working with the Ministry of Local government to clear the streets of Lusaka of vendors.
He says a survey carried out in Lusaka has revealed that there are about 5-thousand empty spaces in various markets in the city which the vendors can occupy.
Colonel Chanda has told ZNBC news that the new directive is not negotiable and government will not hesitate to act against those that will defy the order.
At the weekend Lusaka Mayor Daniel Chisenga has announced that the council will on Monday open a Desk for vendors at the civic centre for registration.
Mr Chisenga says no vendor will be allowed on the streets after Sunday next week.
