THE Ndola City Council has reinforced the number of staff deployed to bus stations and markets in order to boost the local authority’s revenue.
The Council has deployed Ndola City Council police officers and members of the revenue task force to ensure that the bus stops and markets do not have political party cadres collecting revenue from traders or bus station operators.
This comes at the back drop of President-elect, Hakainde Hichilema’s address on August 16, this year, at which he said that his Government would not tolerate political party cadres collecting revenue.
The move has been welcomed by the general public who advised the Council to continue putting measures that would enhance sanity in the stations and trading areas.
The Council officers and the task force have so far visited Chisokone Market, Mulungushi Bus Station, Broadway Bus Stop and Hospital Bus Stop.
The mood in the stations is calm.
