Riots break out in Kanyama

Riots have broken  out in kanyama over the overzealous curfew imposed by the PF regime over Cholera.

It is suspected that one police officer has been killed.

Traders who were driven from city/Soweto market initially gave themselves the Chinika School ground as their temporary marketing place. They were chased after 4-5 days and they went to a place called Mobi, along Kanyama(Los angelos road). Now the police have followed again and this is where they got it rough!

From the time the curfew was imposed, the people of Kanyama have suffered and endured unbearable suffering as they mostly depend on selling small items to survive. This only m and of survival has been curtailed with no alternative.

Those who imposed the curfew are enjoying lobsters and free michopo while showing their ‘solemn’ faces on TV. Hypocrites.

A sensible government which knows that this is a poor community would have put survival measures in place.
For example, the K2 million donated by Zanaco would have been used to buy food packs and clean water for the affected communities.

You can not impose a curfew on poor people but provide no means for them to survive during the curfew. It’s cruel.

How can you lock people in their houses for a week without food?

    So you expect the government to rather let them die of cholera. Please be realistic some people are just used to being on the street even if you give them something. People should act their age. If the government lets you and your families die you’ll still complain. So I hope you all get what you desire and die hence depopulating the country. Maybe the crime rate would go down

    my heart goes out to those victims of executive insensitivity and cruel leadership of a failed administration. Why not provide an alternative source of livelihood before clamping on these victims?

      A disease is nothing that is foreseen by any nation. So that is just backward to say government should provide. To start with cholera was not part of the national budget . Secondly what are you yourself doing mr. Generous

    For how long can GRZ give food packs to these ungrateful Kanyama residents. ZWD should provide sensible solutions.

      Well in every situation in life there is always collateral damage. That’s not an excuse to act like a malice for other people.

    farms await them. these people should consider farming as an alternative not languishing in the streets, this does not even help them meet the general food basket. I am a product of the street vendors but i don’t encourage it because it encourages dirty, thieves and laziness. It is hard but it should be discouraged at all cost

    I saw this coming and I thought the Government did too…
    ’cause there is no way a human being can survive without survival means and we all know Zambia has no Jobs for its people hence people initiative grants them Jobs and most all IT FEEDS THEM. so this was coming even with a YES OR NO. God will see us through

      The only way is to put every suffering zambian in the state house which is not feasible thus suffering must continue for a bit longer.

      Your HH is so rich why hasn’t he donated anything to these poor people. You don’t have to be in power to make a change. Plus he does have the means..: so please look at yourselves and your so called HH before you cast stones out here
