RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Father Bwalya weds Fashion blogger, Peter Mwansa, discusses his Love for fashion and the Launch of House of PML Pictures this week 62 COMMENTS Disgusting and we wonder why we have cholera, not surprising at all!!! Where are all the cadres, Kudos, Bonehead Mushota, Katongo Boys, etc. Go and help clean up this filthy place and stop just pumping your gums!!! 22 2 What a nasty people! Even animals dont live this way. 12 2 Job well done. Residents. Eric Chimese, is a serious guy, Luapula spirit. Us. But Kanganja and his Chinese officers are just laughing around. Where is ZNS? 2 7 Make weekly clean up with prisoners, they are over crowded, and will love to go out of their filthy chimbokaila. I wish I was president mweee. 18 2 So they all waited for the filth to pile up to those levels 6 0 ICHALO ICI SURE KWATI TAKWABA NO BUTEKO SURE! HOW DID THE GOVERNMENT LET FILTHY TO GO THIS DEEP? IT MEANS MINISTERS ARE TOO COMFORTABLE TO CHECK AREAS WITHIN THEIR JURISDICTION/RESPONSIBILITY. WHEN OFFICIALS BECOME TOO COMFORTABLE THEY ALWAYS BECOME DEAF AND BLIND WHILE CORRUPTION AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL FROLISHES. ICILENGA SITUATION YAMUSANGO YU NI DEEP-ROOTED CORRUPTION ESPECIALLY FROM THE TOP. IT’S UNBELIEVABLE! BOTSWANA AND NAMIBIA ARE JUST ROUND THE CORNER TO COPY AND PASTE FROM. 9 0 IT IS EVEN AS IF WASTE MANAGEMENT IS NOT A MULTI BILLION POUND BUSINESS THAT CAN EMPLOY MILLIONS OF YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN. WHY NOT START IT NOW AND JUST MAKE SURE IT IS BACKED UP BY POLITICAL WILL- UNCORRUPTED OF COURSE. 9 0 What is really important here are what measures are put in place after this clean up. This is a pathetic sight and should not be tolerated at all by anyone going forward. Great job Vincent!!! This kid is a great future President of the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise. We now await to hear what shall be done going forward. Our cities used to be extremely clean under UNIP, we even used to have competitions on which house had the best flowers, nicely done lawn and fence. I want my Zambia back … Ne mbwa shakwatako ubusaka bane. 6 8 What have we learn’t regarding trash? Waste management is big business. It can create jobs. And yet we wonder why there are fewer jobs, or none at all. 3 0 5 star Air Force commander inspecting street cleaning….really laughable….kaponyas are truly incharge 4 3 Nostradamus, you wish you were president so that you can copy ECL’s ideas if cleaning up Lusaka? 2 2 We need strict and serious laws on waste management, this is more dangerous than north Korea’s nuclear button sitting on the table of Kim jun. We cannot deny that we have leave worse than pigs. 8 0 Eish its embarrassing calling oneself a Lusaka resident. I suppose when you see the filth daily you become immune to it. Only when you see pictures do you realise how bad things are ! Lets congratulate the Governments efforts. We cannot only offer criticism, when we see something good, lets say Well Done !! 11 1 Mwape That is why we repeat the same mistakes.This filth was created because late Sata refused to chase away vendors and the incumbent took it a step further by allowing cadres to take over markets and stations.They ended taking up the whole city and the revenues that should have gone to the council to manage the city.And where is that PF Secretary General called Mwila?He should have been in the forefront after contributing to this chaos.And where are the st.upid cadres?They just reaped the city’s revenues and are no where near the cleaning the city.As soon as the city is cleaned and the cholera is sorted out they will demand to go back and am sure since PF has failed to create the jobs they promised they will look the other way.These are symptoms of leadership failure.Dull as the PF… 1 0 We have lived more carelessly than pigs . 6 0 Nature has a great way of striking back at simpletons! Wisdom, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and other sayings of the wise should be taught in schools and churches! 1 0 Please keep it this way permanently. No more street vendors again! 10 0 a job for the for local government being done by the entire senior govt officials including the president and the whole of defense forces shuwa? Fire the incompetent mayor 8 1 The buck stops at the President. When was the last time anyone appointed to an office and set of specific expectations given to them? A mayoral position is elected, but do people meet their official and hand them a set of expectations? What should people do when they their elected official is failing to meet their expectations? 3 1 You wonder how it starts? A couple years ago I was at a robot and watched the driver of the GRZ Land Cruiser in front of me throw five plastic drinks bottles out one window and then two or three bottles out the other. Minibus drivers (and passengers!) do this all the time. In the future, I hope such people get clobbered! 10 0 Also when did we ever clean the city when Cholera broke out for the first time in 1977? 1990 to 1993 it lasted almost 2 years. No cleaning was done at this level. This must be a permanent activity. 0 0 P.F. Belly Cadre B.R Mumba, what do U say about your delusional “Filthy smart Zambian enterprise” on show here?? Keep taking your medications, you really need them, & please less use of Blue seal white petroleum jelly vaseline on your cadre face! 3 3 Please read my comment above … What is really important here are what measures are put in place after this clean up. This is a pathetic sight and should not be tolerated at all by anyone going forward. Great job Vincent!!! This kid is a great future President of the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise. We now await to hear what shall be done going forward. Our cities used to be extremely clean under UNIP, we even used to have competitions on which house had the best flowers, nicely done lawn and fence. I want my Zambia back … Ne mbwa shakwatako ubusaka bane. I am the last standing UNIPist and I am no cadre, that’s if you really know who I am 5 8 All those theives who are called defence chiefs are all there for a photo opportunity and a chance to earn allowances……they all live in Lusaka and see the filth every day……… The problem is no one is responsible for that rubbish……the council blames PF cader thugs who run and extort payments from markets and stations the same PF thugs are silent , the PF SG told them to takeover such places, You need to appoint someone with a budget to be responsible for cleaning and maintenance…..where are all the levies collected from shops taken ?? Give that person responsible for cleaning a budget and sack him or her if you see dirt again. Spaka , the most influential blogger 2017. We lead the narrative….. 9 2 Abena Lusaka muli bafiko. How can you live like that, cholera even mu ma yard. Zambians must be responsible for a change. How do you throw garbage anyhow and how do you expect water to flow in the drains when all the drains are chocked with garbarge. Do you really expect someone to keep your work areas and residencies clean? Remember “cleanliness is next to Godliness”. 5 0 It’s not only Lusaka, but throughout Zambia. 6 0 This cholera has come as a results of some politicians trying to be popular.Allowing every Jim ,mary and John to be selling in town as a compensation for the vote they gave in favor of someone.Iremember some time ago,Sylvia Masebo and Patricia Nawa kept street venders abay.Why are the current ministers failing to do the same.If you are allowed to vend and throw garbage indiscriminately, UNGAENDE KUMUUNZI SO?. 5 0 These are the” fruits of corruption!!” In the long run it shows!!!,The book of wisdom the Bible says in Galatians 6:7 ?Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 1 0 It appear to me that this ‘Anus’ Chanda is a so prominent. He is everywhere. I thought he is a statehouse spokesman and he does not represent any constituency. What is he doing inspecting Lusaka? 4 2 Hehehe! Ati,”Part of the cleared drainage at City Market by Defence and Security Wings.” In some cases it does not look so. I have never seen such kind of dirty and people were still trading there peacefully. I like cholera it tell us just how dirty we are maybe we can change for the better. What a disaster. 4 0 Yes, very true. Cholera has indeed come to our rescue. Otherwise, it never would have crossed our minds that we need a cleaner environment. 1 0 Hehehe! Ati,”Part of the cleared drainage at City Market by Defence and Security Wings.” In some cases it does not look so. I have never seen such kind of dirty and people were still trading there peacefully. I like cholera it tells us just how dirty we are maybe we can change for the better if we don’t die of the disease itself. What a disaster. 1 0 Can one confirm is true Lusaka mayor has resigned? 0 0 Very very disgusting, the dirt didnt just come about in a single day. Zambians need a lifestyle change, Government need to provide sufficient trash cans in the streets and trading places. 3 0 Mindset change comes before lifestyle change. 1 0 how did we get here. This shows lack of leadership in Zambia. Drainage systems in Lusaka need unblocking and people should not wait for Cholera. Zambia should learn from Rwanda that has cleaning day and throwing rubbish anyhow is an offence. Most of us Zambians are hypocrites. We go to church and look smart yet our environment is dirty. Cleanness is next to Godless. A clean man in a dirty environment is a dirty man. 2 0 Those drainage systems are the ones which were left behind by the whites at independence. We have been using them as dumping sites for trash. 2 0 What are the guns for? This must be normal in a society and not seen as an act of power or political favor. 1 0 We’re kidding ourselves ,which tourists or investors will want to flock to such a filthy place? 5 0 Ifiko!!! The council is paralysed. Zambians ifiko. This is a result of system breakdown. Just as we have broken down the Anti Corruption Commission. Some day corruption will choke us. This is eerily and terribly horrible!! Beyond comprehension. 3 0 It is like looking at HH. 0 7 And that tells you how nauseating UPND is! 0 3 Thanks to Zambia Army for a job well done! It takes a lot of motivation to clear up all that rubbish, especially unblocking of drainage but the question is what next? If there is no proper waste disposal or incineration system in place, the dirt will certainly be back again. Let’s think beyond and start waste separation, garbage bins for every household as well as weekly garbage collection and disposal. 0 1 An exercise in futility. Something had to give. This is all the result of stealing public money by P-F- fo-o-ls. 2 1 Isn’t the council supposed to be doing this on a regular? 1 0 Instead of procuring for them one Fire Truck for an jaw dropping $1 million….you would have bought the same Fire Truck for $200K + several refusal collection trucks + a dozen road sweepers + a hundred refuse bins!! 4 1 If only we could start thinking. The trouble is, we would rather die than think. 1 0 Trash has no legs. It can’t walk away from point A to point B. It will simply sit there and welcome new comers. This is what has been happening. 0 0 Trash is like trashing Under Five for someone electable! 0 4 The they will be setting fires to the markets! We need both fire tracks and Under Five dump tracks to dump trash. 0 2 This is like steeling money and hiding it in Panama! We get it! 0 3 Zambians got independence way too early .If we can’t deal with simple trash effectively then i give up on more complex stuff of running an airline,software engineering or ever building our own jets. 5 0 Hygiene should be taught in schools and homes. Teach children to throw rubbish in the bin, proper use of toilets, washing hands before eating and after using the toilets and sometimes kids from villages don’t know how to use the toilets in schools because at home they use pit latrines instead of laughing at them, teach them how to use the toilets and also bins should be provided every where. This is the responsibility of Govt, individuals and teachers. 0 0 This part of Lusaka has always been a let down and it will be fible to assume the whole city is like this. We need to take stock of who the land owners are and start inforcing strict city standards. 0 0 1.3 i agree with you we have resources but no brains…and people want to look busy. 0 0 Zaf commander bootlicker watching he will be gone and arrested airlift election time 0 1 SAVAGES waiting for someone else to do their work or NGO handout. 0 0 so when are they appointing a minister in charge of cholera outbreak???? Cholera is there to stay so get someone to deal with it on permanent basis.. 0 0 Naku India kwawamapo mwe!!? Mwati mashinsha aya!!!!!! 1 0 This is not governemnt problem only. The people are to blame as well as no one around those places takes any responsibility. Its a sheer waste of time even doing all this cleaning because soon as the same people go back to the clean place, within a week we will be seeing the same dirt. You even wonder what kind of human beings behave like this. The government is to blame for not enforcing stiff penalties for people with dirty surroundings where they are operating from. And the people are to blame for throwing liter everywhere and anyhow. If garbage was business we would not be finding heaps of Kilimanjaro gabbage. You have campaigns KEEP ZAMBIA CLEAN with lots of vehicles moving up and down with these slogans and u wonder what they are there for. Just look at how many pot holes are on… 1 0 nasiya kudya bacon 0 0 Under KK, we had Humanism Week when all schools and work places would go out and clean their surroundings In Zaire under Mobutu Wasabanga Sese Seko, they had a saturday clean up campaign called Salongo. All business houses and vendors had to clean surroundings from 6.00 to 10.00hrs before any trading or work could start. The party, through the councils, should enforce the public health act making sure that no breaches occur. Politics should only be entertained when all is clean and safe. Otherwise we are doomed. 0 0 Comments are closed.
