ikuweikuwe letter to Governor Lusaka…

?#iKUWEiKUWE Updates
Mr Governor Lusaka
Yesterday I got reports that a container had been placed at the Town recreation garden right in front of Crown bus offices (mawingo building) …
The owner is so arrogant that he dared the aggrieved to report him anywhere for he had paid money to someone “above” for this installation.
TODAY, despite of the known KPLC’s annoyingly SLOW connection action-time… power has been connected on the container within 24 hours of its arrival.
Now, omwami you know that Bungoma county TECHNOCRATS are STRUGGLING with plans to have VIBANDAS (illegal structures) REMOVED in a bid to CLEAN the town along the dual carriageway… this has been a headache since even getting an alternative space for the existing ones is a problem.
Why allow more illegal structures omwami???
Who is this collecting money for such illegal activities???
Na hizi Ng’ombe ??? zinarandaranda town unmanned pia zimekushinda kudeal nazo… You’ll find them resting in the middle of the road ???
