  3. Those so called houses and offices are dilapidated built in the 19 century ,, Come on build modern houses and offices that can withstand heavy rain and storm.

  4. Heavy rains destroys Zambian slums…and slums is all most Zambians can afford since the PF gov’t has destroyed the economy .Add the willful disregard of building codes and the result is what you now see.
