PF sells Lusaka town centre

The PF, using the Lusaka City Council has resolved to sell the town Centre market for K10 million.

According to the statement by Lusaka Town Clerk, Alex Mwansa, the town centre market will be sold by July 24, 2020.

He however says that bidders should pay a non-refundable fee of K20, 000 for the property.

The Lusaka City Town Centre is famous for restaurants, hardwire and generally small scale business men and women.

The trading place has also had its own controversial tenancy agreements.

    The sale of Lusaka Town Centre market is very suspicious. Did the City Council consult the residents of Lusaka before reaching this decision? What was the reason for the sale? I am suspicious. First,it must be some Chinese they are selling it to. Second, the top fellows in LCC are profiting from this sale. LCC is corrupt to the core.

      Land is never sold in Zambia. It is only leased.

        At the rate things are going PF is most likely opting to sell Land over leasing. They’ve already broken every rule, what is going to stop them from selling land within Zambia?
        The only way to stop such shady behavior is Zambian’s must demand accountability from the highest office.

        Lusaka town centre needs to be protected from those that are bent on selling out country’s assets to none Zambians.

    If only someone in the FP took time to read the original files on why that entity was set up, they would see that it had and still has great objectives. Sadly, most PF members are into more money for themselves and they see hard decent with self respect themselves and others as away for a better country. Easy cash is what they love without understanding its consequences in the long run.

    PF has no business selling property that belongs to indigenous Zambians. Period! whomever buys Lusaka town centre need be be prepared to loose their investment. When PF came into office they found Lusaka town centre intact and already there. Who gives PF the right to ransack the country.

    It is time to kick the entire PF gang out of office. 2021 Vote them all out. No more chances they have failed us.

    Some cadre will probably purchase it and in true komboni style subdivide it into 30 X 30 plots. Lusaka is looking like chawama now. No farm or kuma yard area anymore.Peasant mind set of our styopet ECL and his 40 thieves.

    For me my dream has actually been to clear that whole section and create a Town Square. Just put pavings and create an area for gathering. i have never seen any city without a Town Square. You could even put a statue of KK in the center. Take Development out to increase the beauty, ambiance and cleanliness.

      Doug I agree. We need a town square. But not that site. The surrounding dirty neighborhoods wholesale shops owned by a group of people iScan eyesore. The no of businesses owned by these people would not reflect too well for an AFRICAN country. How about preserving green spaces as well to make Lusaka look like central or Hyde Park (NYC and London)? We are destroying all our woodland and truly making Lusaka look like a giant shanty township. This used to be called the garden city for goodness sake.

    It should be reserved for indigenous Zambians. I bet it’s going to a Chinese, Lebanese or Pakistani. Mark my words. Our county mortgaged right before our eyes

    PF is selling everything yet some know-it-all analysts on assessing how each political party of the opposition would fare if elected to run government, are quick to target and conclude that some parties would auction the little the country has!
