Local Government Minister Vincent Mwale has given an update on the progress made on the Simon Mwewa Market.
Below is Mwale’s full statement:
We are almost getting there! Construction of Simon Mwewa Market along Lumumba Road is progressing well, our hope is to beat the rains.
This market will create trading spaces for those trading in gutted roofless City Market and some traders who were displaced from the streets, once traders trading from City Market relocate to this market we will begin reconstructing City Market.
We want thank all who made contributions (through DMMU) towards the reconstruction of the City Market, your donations amounting to K1.7million kwacha is part of the K70m being used to construct this market. See what your money has done the country is indebted to you. God bless all!
