Southern Province Minister Edify Hamukale has directed that the 140 marketeers that were displaced to pave way for construction of a modern market in the Livingstone Central Business District be allowed to trade from the frontage of Hindu Hall.

Dr Hamukale made the directive in the tourist capital today following a complaint made last Saturday, by marketeers at Simango Temporal Market, which is a private property in the town Centre area.

He however, urged the traders to be responsible by keeping the place clean, pay levies and abide by the other regulations which would be given to them by the Livingstone City Council.

“However, we’d like you to comply with the regulations of the council by keeping that place clean, by paying levies as and when the council demands that payment and ensure that you trade responsibly, especially that your town is a tourist town. The onus is on you to ensure you support our government by trading responsibly,” he said.

And Simango Temporal Market Treasurer Eunice Banda who represented the other marketeers appreciated the gesture made by the minister.

Ms Banda said marketeers had suffered a lot following their displacement but was confident the decision by Dr Hamukale would curb most challenges they were facing.

She thanked former Southern Province Minister Alice Simango for allowing them to trade on her property for free for an indefinite period.

  1. ELECTION PLOY – AFTER ELECTIONS THEY WILL BE BANNED AGAIN. WHY HAVE YOU NOT COMPLETED THE MARKET WHICH CHEWED SO MUCH MONEY ????????????????

    • @Double Tobela. Because that’s the truth. Funny thing is the party doesn’t have party membership cards.

  2. You propose a pregnant and married woman then you give her a condition to abort and divorce her husband for you to marry her. Then you say she loves me.
    The Livingstone marketeers were removed because of cholera preventive measures then they were not allowed back because most them were UPND supporters. So as they marketeers were pushing to go back to the street ,then PF took advantage to lure them ; public ditch UPND to trade in street . Then Hamukale is now smiling . Humakale, the marketeers are milking you meanwhile you are thinking they have left UPND,their brains,hearts and blood have remained with UPND; only if you turn around the economic nose diving to ascending within 6 months.

  3. What happened to the SI banning street bending? Now vendors are back on the streets of every major town and city even being endorsed by the same politicians that made the law in the first place.
