Mayor of the City of Lusaka Miles Sampa taking Oath before Magistrate David Simusamba during the his Installation as Mayor of the City of Lusaka at Nakatindi Grounds

Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa has vowed to vigorously implement regulations that govern opening and closing times for bars and taverns.

Mr Sampa said there is need to regulate the consumption of alcohol in the capital city.

He said one of his main tasks is to ensure that all bars and taverns adhere to the regulations that governs beer trading.

Mr Sampa said he is concerned that most bars in Lusaka do not follow the guidelines and opening and closing times.

He said he will not hesitate to close down bars and taverns that are not following laid down procedures.

Mr Sampa was speaking in Lusaka on Friday evening during a cocktail party organised by the Lusaka City Council following his installation as Mayor.

“I will start inspecting the opening and closing of bars. Infact, I will start with the Buzz Café which is the place I usually frequent and check when they open and what time they close. Even at Capone, I will go and inspect and if we find that they are operating outside the law, we shall close them down,” Mr Sampa warned.

  3. Stop sounding warnings. Just go do your work quietly or speak as you execute what is expected of you. When you promise and fail, people shall refer to the same and call you an alarmist. Why do you people talk so much before you even start your works? ECL said the electorate shouldn’t wait for that day again to challenge you on your workmanship. Avoid that and start working now.

  4. kikiki ala you can laugh. so after all those wild ambitious dreams this boy had before the election, his priority is now to clamp down on the source of income of many poor zambians. A visionless leader is always quick to ban or clamp down. Those with a vision like HH, will always find means and ways to achieve a status quo that puts both the citizens/ public and government in a good position. A good leader always balances the public interest with the economic benefits. give us alternatives not just ban ban. ubututu. hope people are happy with this choice. enjoy your mayor because to me I do not recognise this boy. He is not my mayor

  5. In Mozambique last time i checked one did not even need a liquor licence to sell beer yet there was no evidence of abuse despite the fact that beer is available everywhere including streets 24/7. Sometimes too much regulation increases curiosity and young ones use all means to try out. Avail it everywhere and they will taste and get used or abandon it

  6. well, Africa has no leadership crisis..instead votership crisis is order of the day.Zim,just like Zambia you cannot be using same pot and hoping to get enough.Sampa ,Mnangangwa ..are like same pots with same old capacity but simply painted outside and christened NEW.My observation is that ,when men stand with that book in Sampa’s hands and promise you a good service ,just know the service is not for this world…it will never come.perhaps after life.
    Time is now to avoid same old mistakes.I know, going by psychonalytics the stress majority Zambians are going through is beyond management ,and i guess 95% would qualify to be mental patients and require admission in mental annex. Yes ,its reason the voting trends show lack of judgement.
    please..someone help.

  9. I told you fooools that Sampa will never step on anyones toes and tackle the real issues affecting the capital like vendors, cadres running the market, bus stations etc…only these small things. Dont complain as you had a chance to vote but you never turned up…continue to wallow in mediocrity!!

  10. Mr sampa,consider that most of these bars are a means of survival for the electerate who ushered you into your office,rather regulate them than closing them coz you may end up causing untold poverty fo bar owners.this wl defeat the very essence of the pf propoor manifesto.create jobs instead of grabbing jobs from your peaple.think twice before effecting this ban otherwise,it may dwindle your popularity.
