  1. How can we let the capital city and the biggest market in the city degenerate to this? It’s a shame no wonder there is a cholera outbreak every year. Lusaka is a very dirty city. Whey don’t we see or hear of cholera outbreaks in Lilongwe, Johannesburg, Windhoek, Maputo or Harare. It also rains at the same time as us. Only Lusaka and Kinshasa have this every rainy season because the two capital cities have dirty surroundings.

    • Look at them, You go for a clean campaign in suits and camouflage uniforms? Jokers.
      What next after the clean campaign.What is needed is a change in our culture in dealing with dirt.Ubusali abena Zambia.
      If refuse bins and drums are put around the city and toilets built, they will be vandalized, That’s Zambia for you.This crisis has revealed that the current pf govt has lost direction and is only consistent in one thing, PLUNDER OF PUBLIC FUNDS
      someone somewhere is sleeping on the job and needs to be fired ASAP!

  2. So what’s going to happen after the cleaning to make sure that same dirt doesn’t come back? And when is this process going to end?

  3. I wonder how we allow/ed ourselves to live in such filth! If our mindset in relation to hygiene…..and good planning (for settlements and trading places) does not change, it will not be long before the filth returns–and returning with a bang!

  4. Flashback to August 2015 … “THE Lusaka water supply, sanitation and drainage project under the Millennium Challenge Corporation will commence this year at a cost of US$355 million”

    Any evidence that this project has been going on? Loans, grants, aid, e.t.c have been obtained over the years to ‘sort out’ Lusaka’s water and sewerage systems. Check the history. Wondering where and how exactly all this has been spent – in view of our perennial water and sanitation issues.

  5. The whole lot touring the city don’t deserve to be in their positions. What have they been doing over the last couple of years or so? What is Amos Chanda’s role in all of this, by the way? It all points to a government without vision or plans. Holistically it also reveals underlying social-economic ills. If rural areas were ‘attractive’, Lusaka’s population wouldn’t be so high. There is nothing to support that population in Lusaka. No industries to absolve the unemployed, a poor education system that does not prepare entrepreneurship, or produce graduates who can plan the city. And then a cohort of greedy, corrupt politicians usurping the nations resources who should not, in any case, be in charge of a country.

  6. All Well and Good to have Defense forces doing work around the country but the defense forces are already employed, create employment for the civil man and keep him employed to keep the city clean.

  7. Once upon a time,the people of Zambia did not know much about money.Money was in the hands of the elders and mature people who understood the use of it. People lived in peace with their neighbours and shared what they had.Our people were able to work hard on the land without complaining .Civil servants were very happy working for the Government and the Government was very happy to pay the civil servants.Security guards used to do their work properly,searchimg people and making sure that the properties they were guarding were sucure.Policitians were respected and rewarded.No one asked the Politicians questions,Every thing was running smoothly until money became the most after sought commodity,
    Today,15 million Zambians look for this commodity(Money)everday How they Get this commodity is…

  8. Can we bring a plastic recycling company that can use all that plastic to make a better city environment? how about trash bins, what happened to them?

  9. It is a shame that we have a minister of local government and yet the capital city is in such a state. It had to take the President to start cleaning the city. The minister should be fired for gross incompetence

  10. Look here you people……you can not have anything done when there is no accountability……next time the city and markets get dirty again in 3 months sack that ka mwale and the dozing mayor and boards that run the markets…..

    NO accountability is the biggest ill facing Zambia…and the root behind everything that is wrong with our country….

  11. What is Amos Chanda doing, in all this? This man is a civil servant and should be holed up working silently in his office. Why always wanting to be in the limelight as if he is a politician????
