General Education Michael Kaingu’s Kozo Lodge in Choma was on Friday afternoon razed to ashes after fire swept through the entire property.
The fire is believed to have started from nearby fields and came rampaging to the Lodge as workers watched on helplessly.
No one died in the inferno and it was unclear the value of the property lost.

  1. Nearly every one of GRZ s decision makers is a bussiness man no wounder they do not have time to develop the nation. All their attention and time is spent on enriching themselves.

    Kaingu is a self-made man, made his money well before entry into public service. This fire must be looked at with a lot of suspicion. Thorough painstaking forensic investigations must be instituted to get to the root of the source of the fire. Burnt to ashes! Why such hatred?

    • What suspicion when the article clearly states bush fire…this why you let politicians to tell you to pray for the economy when if that you put them their to fix the problem.

    • This is what leads people to witchcraft. The fire spread from the bush. Nobody hates the man.There are two lessons to be learnt here. We need proper fire departments (one). Two. Insure your property.

    • The story clearly states that the fire approached from nearby fields. In countries with working fire brigades it could have been stopped from encroaching on buildings by the early arrival of firefighters. Unless you want to say the Arsonists in this case knew the fire started in the fields would head towards the lodge and destroy all

  4. Too bad. Yes Dr Kaingu made his money before politics started brainwashing him. I was at koto in July, what a shame it is fired down. Hope it was insured.

  6. Thatch, Thatch, Thatch.
    Watchwords when you build in thatch are as follows:
    1. Fire suppression (Extinguishers, sprinklers, hose reels which should all be well maintained)
    2. Heat and Smoke detectors linked to a fire alarm panel in reception or any area which is constantly occupied
    3. Fire Drills at regular intervals
    4. Insurance against Fire
    5. Use of Fire retardants on the grass
    6. Regular inspection for electrical faults

    Sorry about your loss, Bosses

    • How is all that going to help against an external bush fire being fuel with wind direction? Only building design could help but that is futile even with water bombing from the air as evident in places like California or Australia…bush fires requires specialist training where you fight the fire with another fire as a barrier.

  7. Well this is what happens when you invest taxpayers funds in buying GRZ luxury 4X4 vehicles for pointless DCs and useless ministers who get travel allowances and car loans anyway …instead of investing in front line services like ambulances and fire engines.
    Welcome to the club!!

    No matter what caused the fire, It would have helped if proper fire fighting provisions were on hand. This lodge was NOT in a forest reserve as per your example

  10. Very sad indeed! A very jovial and pleasant man; controversial yes, but a gentleman. Wish you a quick recovery from this loss.
