Enforce banning of street vending

Lusaka street vendors

Chirundu Town Council Chairperson Nevers Muchindu has implored council management to be proactive in enforcing Statutory Instrument (SI) banning street vending in the Central Business District.

Mr. Muchindu is disappointed with council management for seemingly entertaining street vendors that are reportedly going back to the streets to conduct their businesses.

 Chirundu Town Council Chairperson wondered why council management has failed to maintain the presence of both state and council police to be patrolling on the streets to ensure compliance.

“When the SI is issued, it becomes law and I am sorry to say that from our point of view, especially our officers are not doing much in terms of making sure that they enforce the law and make sure that people comply,” he wondered.

“I want to issue this statement (directive) that our officers abide by such instructions because such instructions are coming from the highest offices and if they are failing to do that it means that we need somebody to work on their behalf which is very unfortunate.

“So going forward I urge my council officers and other people assigned to do the work to make sure that they obey the laws and move the people to designated places.”

Mr. Muchindu has since made a passionate appeal to street vendors to remain in markets because failure to that will create anarchy in the district.

Chirundu Town Council last week moved all street vendors to Chirundu Main Market, Mission Market and Yellow Jacket Market in line with the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development’s directive.


  1. Those of you here who claim that gay male sex is disgusting have never experienced a fishy r0tten smelling vaglna. There is no smell worse than that but you don’t see us gays criticising you heterosexuals. Love and sleep with whoever you want. It’s your human right

  2. We all know that Human rights dont mean a person can sleep with his offspring. Just like human rights will not allow a sister to marry her brother these rights shouldnt allow same sex marriages because these relations are unproductive: they dont enhance humanity. The purpose of male and female is so that they can reproduce and fill the earth. Human rights are not rights declared by Western nations for the rest of the world to follow. Ask yourself, why do countries championing this individualism refuse a person to get married to two or three people? Because they think everything should be dictated to the world by them.

    • Did you know you can freeze eggs and use artificial insemination to make children using surrogacy? You are behind and uncivilised. Technology is now advanced and people like you are running out of excuses for your homophobic insecurities. By the way, not everyone wants to have children. Even that is your human right to decide if or not your want children.

    • Yes I know. You are the one who is behind cos you cant think further. When eggs are frozen and surrogate mothers substitute for barren women the process is still Male plus Female. Frozen eggs will need fertilisation by male sperm. There has to be interaction between the male and female reproductive systems to result in fertilization of the ovum by the sperm to form a zygote.
      No scientist has discovered male to male reproduction. Also ask yourself why cloning has been halted by various governments

  3. Wagona thank you for opening up my mind. So these so called scientific developments of freezing sperm, insemination and test tube babies were done so as to legalise homosexuality! Yaba!
    The civilised West must keep them.

    • Did you know that even men can enhance their b00bs and get them bigger. Some here say why would you want to enter the backside but both the backside and vaglna are capable of making one ejacuIate. The end result is same. So why criticise those that prefer something different from you
