Known PF cardres this morning swung into action in Bauleni Township where they have demolished makeshift stands, popularly known as tuntemba.
These makeshift stands are next to Bauleni Community Police post and they belong to about 15 women that have been trading at that location for over 25 years.
UPND Lusaka Central aspiring candidate Mulambo Haimbe who rushed to the scene explains that the known cardres have claimed the land for themselves and have since ferried building materials there with a view, apparently, to build shops on the Land.
An attempt to find out how or indeed whether the Land in issue has been allocated to the known cardres by the Lusaka City Council proved futile by press time as officers spoken to expressed ignorance.
The affected women who include widows have lamented the action as their structures which they had put up at great cost have been damaged and they have lost all means of livelihood.
