Tourism and Arts Charles Banda says he expects a comprehensive report from all relevant authorities in Livingstone on the fire incident at the Maramba Cultural Village.
In a statement from Luxor, Egypt, Mr Banda said he has learnt with sadness the burning down of Maramba Cultural Village in Livingstone.
In a statement from Luxor, Egypt, Mr Banda said it was regrettable to have the only cultural village in the tourist capital gutted to ashes barely less than 2 years after government rebuilt it at huge cost using tax payer’s money.
He said at the time when government was planning to use Maramba Cultural Village as a model to be replicated in all the ten provinces and then it is burnt down in unexplained circumstances.
Mr. Banda hoped it was not an act of arson and has called on all security wings especially the Zambia Police command in Livingstone to investigate the circumstances that led to the start of the fire and eventually the gutting of the cultural village.

If your house is burning, wouldn’t you try and put out the fire?
What comprehensive report? We have been told that somebody was trying to warm a drum and from there that’s how the fire started. Fire extinguishers should always be in place in every public place.
Its shire Recklessness emanating from PF government down to Institutions and Individuals. No-one is responsible for anything. Everyone seems to have lost hope in this type of PF reckless Government. It doesn’t inspire hard work nor patriotism.
This village was/is glass thatched roof which requires maximum safety precaution against fire esp in wake-up of Kozo-Lodge and Natural-Mystic incidence. Regrettably, no such measures were implemented coz of PF cadreism.
Cry-my beloved Country. Levy Mwanawasa almost brought sanity in economic, democratic development but these vampires have destroyed the little effort made.
It’s the under 5 cadres hahahaha.
