Miles threatens to shut down Lusaka Magistrates’ Court owing to dirty toiletsBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 12 Feb 2019
Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa has written to the Senior Clerk of Courts at the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court over the dirty toilets at the complex, warning that the council would not hesitate to close down the premises if there’s no improvement in its sanitation.
And Sampa has offered solidarity, love and goodwill to UPND Kanyama Ward 10 Councillor Brighton Bilumba, who was sentenced to one year six months imprisonment with hard labour for theft involving K53,600.
He said in an interview with News Diggers! that justice needed to prevail, but added that he was offering Bilumba love and goodwill as he serves his sentence.
“As Mayor, I treat and consider all Councillors the same. Justice must prevail but I offer solidarity, love and goodwill wishes to him as he goes through this process,” Sampa said.
Meanwhile, Sampa has written to the Senior Clerk of Courts at the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court over the dirty toilets at the complex.
Leaving the court premises yesterday, Sampa said he was unhappy with the sanitation at the court complex, warning that it was running risk of closure.
In a handwritten letter written jotted after after the Court session, Sampa disclosed that when he visited the men’s toilets at the complex, he found them very dirty and without running water.
He appealed to the senior clerk of court to assist the council in their ‘Keep Lusaka City Clean, Green and Healthy’ campaign.
“I was at the complex this morning for a court judgement for one of my councilor Brighton Bilumba of Kanyama. I visited the mens toilet [and] I found it very very dirty, not fit for human usage. The two urinary are blocked and covered with plastics. The two flashing toilet pans have no running water. There were two workers that were charging K2 to anyone to to enter the dirty toilet. Madam, please assist us in the ‘Keep Lusaka City Clean, Green and Healthy’ [campaign],” he stated.
Sampa added that the council would not hesitate to close down the premises if there was no improvement.
