    The problem is we have allowed illegality where people can sell everywhere.Our municipalities are not doing much when it comes to people by abiding with our bylaws.Even our Lusaka mayor role by ensuring that our city is clean is now being political.Now Cardres are controlling our dirty streets.What a shame.
