Minister of Local Government Vincent Mwale says his ministry is in a hurry to open the Soweto BH fruit and vegetable market to the public.

Mr. Mwale said the market needs to be opened once the construction is done because the fruits and vegetables are being sold in a bad area where there is no sanitary facilities.

ZANIS reports that Mwale said this when he received 750 tonnes of stones and sand donated by AVIC International at Soweto BH market in Lusaka today.

He said the market can be hopefully opened in two to three months’ time to the public so that farmers and traders can improve the whole chain of supplying the products.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mwale also took time to tour the Simon Mwewa market which is under construction.

    • Violation of Health and Safety Issues Young Vincent. You cannot Visit a construction site without a helmet. What’s wrong with these Zambian ministers? It’s like his not educated. The site superintendent is also stupid. Even if its Lungu he has to follow the HSE rules.

    • Is that a multi storey market in the photo…looks like a warehouse? More lies..more money in their pockets

    • I was also wondering……trying to recall if it wasn’t the multi-storey market that was being talked about. Now I see the skeleton of a warehouse 🙂
      I am curious the final figure of the costs.

      Anyhow, its good at least there is something built for the marketers.

  1. “ZANIS reports that Mwale said this when he received 750 tonnes of stones and sand donated by AVIC International at Soweto BH market in Lusaka today”

    Really sad AVIC can afford to make those donations are they are making a killing with their corrupt friends in PF…how can you say you are in a hurry when you dont have money in the first place.

    • If they want to burn the market again …they can simply switch of the camera. How is it that no one has been arrested up to now?

  2. Lets do it for our people, well done President Lungu thats the way, delivery and not rhetoric by opposition. This time around, let the market be a world class piece so that even the middle class can be mingling there and supporting our mothers and brothers by buying products in clean sanitary environment. 2021, HH Halila Hagain.

  3. It was kapoyongo with full knowledge of lungu who was burning markets to justify 42/42 …………and nail HH.

  4. i like the lady in the first pic, second from left. her stature and the way she’s standing exudes confidence.

    the cadre behind Vincent, in the Zambian soccer shirt needs to get arrested. he looks like is up to no good lol. he looks like he’s done something wrong since becoming a pf cadre.

  5. ‘Che-che’ we seem to be having/sharing same ideas here. Indeed how can AVIC donate sand/rocks as if sand is if they are coming from China mwebantu? We have trillions of tons of such material in Zambia given to us by our Gods for free so, where the hell are our Zambian engineers from UNZA and elsewhere to undertake such kind of constructions? Awe mwandi, l feel like committing suicide for my children

  6. Once upon a time, it would be a mayor or district governor inspecting a project like this. Now it is a minister, if not the president.

  7. If you have nothing to say you just keep quiet. Tondolo musuma. Than insult your colleagues each time you want to comment on issues. It simply shows what type of a person you. Dull period.
