KAPALALA MARKET FIRE-UPDATE
Earlier today, I made my way to the gutted Kapalala Market in my constituency-Kabushi to offer support to the victims of the fire that gutted almost the entire market.
I rushed to the scene upon my arrival in Ndola after finishing my Cabinet duties in Lusaka to show that Government is standing firmly with the victims.
I was in the company of the local civic leadership in the area and I could not back tears when I heard heart wrecking stories from Marketeers including our elderly mothers who have completely lost everything they had at the market.
I assured the victims that the Government of His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu will not abandon them at this trying time and that an effective response strategy is being development to assist the victims.
