Fire broke out at a milling plant belonging to UPND presidential running mate Geoffrey Mwamba in Lusaka’s Chinika industrial area.
Quick action by the Lusaka Fire Brigade that rushed to the scene saved the plant from reduced to ashes.
When reached for a comment, Mr Mwamba who is campaigning on the Copperbelt confirmed that the plant gutted but said he will issue a comprehensive statement later.
“I have been informed of the fire at the GBM milling plant. I will comment after I get more details.
Meanwhile we are at Chief Nkana’s palace in Lufwanyama paying a courtesy call,” Mr Mwamba said.
