DANGER: ‘Lack Of A Fuel Station In Chinsali May Cause An Inferno By Fuel Vendors’

Chinsali town has no Fuel station
Dear Editor,

Not long ago, we saw how fire swept through a market in DRC destroying life and property. Locally, it was in Kabwe where an inferno resulted in loss of life.

In both instances, these fires were as a result of looting fuel from Tankers that had overturned.

In Chinsali, a local businessman can bear testimony as he has been left with permanent scars inflicted on him after he was burnt following a fire in his house which he used to store fuel he was selling. Well, not many examples given. But you may have heard or even seen how fuel burns.

In Chinsali fuel is being sold indiscriminately at almost every corner of the market and near banks, shops, and even the near the police station. One can not even understand, Who has been compromised. Is it the hard working DC? Certainly not. but, madam DC, we know you can do something. This leaves us with the council and police that are even getting fuel from the vendors on credit. Its shameful. How can you enforce law and order?

For your so called Municipal Council, you dont even have a Fire Tender not even fire extinguishers at your offices and you know that Chambeshi Water is as irresponsible as yourselves so how can we even control a small fire.

Every one understands that we have no Filling Station, but this should not be an excuse to put people’s lives at great risk. TIMELY AND FREE ADVICE Find an alternative and isolated area where you can put these fuel vendors.

    There is very little activity on these so called towns along great north road. Only Mpika, serenje, mkushi and kapiri qualify to be called towns.

    You mean as famous as chinsali is there is no filling station. Ok lets be realistic Chinsali is famous for lenshina thing and am sure there are even some tourist attractin sites somewhere there, why no filling station all these years? And you with no brains you condem PF for that? I do not get it. Is it just for fun or pure hatred of PF? I MEAN….. Ala mwebantu twilalembafye pantu kulemba think before you write.

    Businessmen/women of Chinsali come together & put up a service station (so called filling station). Are you waiting for Sata/Nevers/HH or any politician to do that for you? Rabbish! Zambians, you lack the ability to work together, you are just good at insulting each other. That is a business opportunity & not politics.

    actually one is in the pipe-line…..funds are being scouted to construct one at turn-off…..

    Chinsali too much of traditional issues wen it comes to land allocation. The filling station cud hav come a long time ago but because of land issue it came to stand still the allocated area for a filling station is on a traditional land.!!!!!

    Its not only chinsali madam even mwinilunga where the source of the mighty zambezi river is has no filling station. Govt depts buy fuel from these vendors even the council themselves. The fuel is thick and smells badly. Its like they mix petrol with paraffin. The govt should do something to prevent loss of lives.

    The DC stays in rural/Zesco compound where there is no water. People draw their water from the hospital

    People like Dr Nevers should put their energy on projects like this in there home town instead of wasting time leading a dead party & unleashing tugs on innocent Kachingwe
