  1. What is 40, 000? ECL pledged 750, 000 to build houses for Priests. Who makes more money, you or the President?

    • Ba Lombe muli chipuba. Leave Edgar for a day.
      Ngandu and friends made money that Soweto/City market, yes it makes sense that they “pay-back” to community. One time I walked out from that market with old K25 million for 5 smart phones in 15 minutes. Just last year, I sent 3 laptops & 1 pad , same day they got the katundu my nephew called me at I so iyi K29,500 nalachita shani uncle?
      Committee to rebuild market should have should have been some business men, not PF ministers.
      State of emergency…

    • Lombe or whatever you called Drunkard Lungu is using money looted from government while a noble hard working citizen like Mr Ngandu is paying from his own swear.
      I think you must sick in your with that kind of reasoning. Just because of the sound of his name that is enough to send you into madness, you will die pofye change if you are normal being.
      Remember Dictator Lungu was so poor like a church mouse not long ago such that his could not afford to pay his nomination fee, he had to borrow. Also remember he had to previously stolen from a client.

    • Way to go, Trevor If everyone gives, no matter the amount, the market will be rebuilt. City market is a big part of Lusaka economy but then again Zambians don’t understand this kind of thinking!

    • This has touched so many Zambians and i am sure if it was done by untrained party carder he would have been arrested by now but it was done by someone who is trained professional who knows all about the market and its security, Most likely from Office of the president or Zambia army, A guy from a compound can not do this and go undetected . EL, RB and kaiza zulu have managed to put cotton wool on everyone apart from me.

  4. Lombe can’t appreciate anything. Be a gentleman. It helps. Saying thanks is not a sin. Jesus thanked even those who just cleaned his feet.

  6. Burning of the market is the act of satanism at its best. If it is a person who done this, there is nothing that he or she has achieved out of it apart from putting many families on death penalty. Just to avoid any loss of life from the affected people, am suggesting this to the government. If at all we have some mukula logs forfeited to the state, quickly sell them and use the money to rebuild the market.

  13. I have seen nothing wrong in Lombe’s opinion. The way ba Lungu has twisted the story of this disastrous scene. It is a national mourning, its pity people who lost those property will be helpless. The whole country should have contributed to this poor fellows. But it’s now political, where the president without waiting for investigation labeled the opposition as the perpetrators of this crime.
    So half of the country won’t contribute anything.
    Thanks.

  14. so this market was never ever insured! what a foolish country we live in! this market was built a long time ago and those people who work there pay for the use of the stalls in the market… so what is the money being used for? typical Zambian….nobody thought about the insurance because all the politicians think about is their pockets …….where is the insurance?

  16. This man should donate that money to an orphanage or some other charity. The government is going to rebuild the market. Government has lots of money. The new state house project should be put on hold till the gutted market is rebuilt

  18. Look at this as a disaster without prejudice. Now LCC have put the management under cadres who have responsibilty, surely if cadres are collecting fees then they have a responsibilty for the safety and in a real vommercial environment they would be held responsible for the damage and als be questioned why there was no insurance, is this the reason that LCC didnt have it insured because they were expecting those “running” the market would have insured to protect their insurable interest.
    When does a fire of which the cause has not been determined become terrorism. Soeech to justify the end result.
