General News LCC pulls plug on Lusaka Play House Filling Station project

Lusaka City Council has revoked permission granted for the controversial construction of a filling station at Lusaka Play House following public outrage.

Lusaka Town Clerk Alex Mwansa stated that the old permission has been revoked due to public interest surrounding the matter.

Mr Mwansa said the permission will be reviewed after the concerns and observations regarding the matter have been resolved.

A number of artists and theatre enthusiasts had expressed opposition to the planned development of a Filling Station at the Lusaka Play House by Kenyan investor Hass Petroleum on a 25 year lease.

  2. Somalians have come with a lot of money that they’re throwing around to put up filling stations even in undesignated places. ACC must take interest in these matters. I was shocked when a friend called me in the night to tell me that a project we had opposed and was put on hold for a year was going to proceed because the Somalian had spent K2.0M in bribes at LCC. Indeed the project is on in a residential area! I’m not surprised by this Lusaka Playhouse saga. Unfortunately ACC is only interested in political matters

  3. THAT IS GOOD NEWS
    FILLING STATIONS AND BLOCK MAKING WHICH ARE DOMINATED BY TWO NATIONALITIES
    ARE NO MORE THAN MONEY LAUNDERING ENTERPRISES
    THIS HA BEEN MENTIONED TO ZRA BUT BROWN PAPER ENVELOPES RULE THE DAY
    WELDONE LCC

  4. With due respect, Kaiser Zulu shouldn’t masquerade on this forum as on high moral ground when frequently being dragged to courts of law for civil and criminal offences. So we remind you to pay $13,000 you owe Mr Stephen Mulembeta Samuteba. You promised to pay this money within 30 days from 24th March 2022. What class do you belong to deceive others as you do. Many more criminal cases are in the pipe line, and dont dare ACC as you are in the habit of crying ‘persecution’, like many of you PF cadres do.

  5. Very good news…these shareholders just wanted to turn the carpark into a cashcow whilst neglecting the place. In Zambia when shareholders brainstorm on what to do with land only filling stations and shopping malls make top list..long at UNZA.

  6. A play house is mind enriching and what’s needed to draw young people from beer halls. Only a fool would advocate for it’s demolition in favour of a filling station. I’m virtually certain Lusaka already has more filling stations than play houses. A big NO to this one.

    #plant a tree please.

  7. Muna dekhane you won’t get a substantive response from me on those faeces you have just sprayed above. Don’t comment on cases you have no idea of, lest you be charged with contempt of court. How many times have I been accused of crimes and yet no single record exist of a conviction. You dogs. Leave me t o enjoy my drink in peace here at chita

  8. But uts true that Somalis dominate he petroleum industry. Even one of their nationals admitted that Zambia has benefited from illegal Somali money including from ship pirates and Alshabab may be benefiting through arms purchase..

  9. Loo, Lusaka council must lose the power to allocate licenses and permits fo fuel stations. How can a council allow 2 petrol stations, which store highly flammable liquid to be built next to a barrack? Twin Palm rd has 2 petrol station right opposite ZAF barracks. How did ZAF not intervene? Something has gone seriously wrong with our security wings
