The camera was set ablaze in the early hours of Wednesday with the motive not yet known.
The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) recently introduced speed cameras on selected roads of Lusaka to counter the escalating number of traffic accidents.
The agency is through the Advanced Road Traffic Management System (ARTMS) monitoring traffic offences on the roads.
The move though progressive, has raised a heated debated among motorists, with some questioning the implementation of such a programme without putting in place proper signage on the highways.
The other argument by motorists is on the speed limit on some highways.
According to RTSA, the advanced road safety management system project comes with 30 mechanised motor vehicle inspection centres which will be built countrywide.
The technology system is being implemented by the Intelligent Mobility System (IMS), an Austrian company through a 17-year concession.
Under ARTMS, mobile policing vehicles will be used to check the compliance of motorists to various highway requirements and obligations.
It comes with the electronic check points for road enforcement and the speed management system which is meant to manage the excessive speed.
