    • You are only doing this because the President is incapacitated. If he comes back you will be in trouble.

  1. as the major enforcers of the Local Government Act.
    THEY ARE MAJOR ENFORCERS OF THE PRESIDENTIAL ACT .SO THAT MEETING IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

  2. i now agree with the person who coined the term that Africa is a dark continet. Sata created the proble and you claim to be enforcer of the Law. Which law? Sata’s law or LCC law? Don’t deceive the people. what a filth place, lusaka is?

  3. Ask anyone who has been to Dar es salaam lately how the Tanzania government has managed to curb street vending. It is only wiser to learn from your friends how to look after your own home if you can’t manage yourself.
