The behaviour of Kanyama residents today must be condemned by all well meaning Zambians and that they should stop black mailing the president.
Government can not be held to ransom by few sponsored renegades. Our city was becoming filthy because of the activities of these vendors who do not even pay tax.
We need to change our thought process. Lets think with our heads. The health,Safety and sanity of our city is much bigger than a handful of these NDC sponsored renegades or street vendors. There’s a place for everything. You can not run a country like jungle or a circus in order to appease a select few.
Thats ridiculous. There’s plenty of trading space in the markets. These people would rather be in the CBD for a quick buck. A country that does not abide by its rules and laws ultimately ends up in the gutter.
Street vending is immoral. There is the appropriate place for traders and thats in the markets.
Things need to be done the right way. All those found wanting in these riots should be caged and punished, I don’t care whether they be UPND or PF, The president needs to send a clearer message that such nonsense will not be condoned. He needs to further re-affirm street vending is illegal going forward and any revolting culprits should be dealt with severely!.
I am disappointed police today did act the way they normally do to UPND carders, these vendors must be taught how to abide by rules, yes we understand the difficulties they are going through but this is time for sacrifice, businesses have been affected so vendors must not think they are special.
I ask our president not to bow down, at times in life a leader has to make tough decisions for the common good of man ever if it means him losing popularity, we can not go back to that filthy again.
President Lungu,Hon.Mwale,Dr.chilufya and Lusaka City mayor, remember you have the support of well meaning Zambians, please do not give or be emotionally black mailed by these sponsored renegades.
Thumbs and May God give you wisdom as you look for solutions to make Zambia great again.
