Zambia: Lusaka Untouched By Hiked Maize Prices

FASCINATINGLY, Lusaka has not been hit by this indefensible increase in the prices of mealie-meal which has occurred in various parts of the country.

Selling a 25 kilogramme bag of breakfast mealie-meal at K80, 000 when the sole raw material, maize, cost K65, 000 per 50 kilogramme is immoral and traders, who are doing that in some parts of the country, should stop.

Talking shop would, therefore, like to extol Lusaka millers and traders for not joining in the exploitation of consumers and have maintained the current prices of the staple food.


THE quality of food at Rhapsody at Lusaka's Arcades Shopping Centre but it takes too long just for the simplest meal to be served.

There is need for the management to ensure quick service to meet the expectations of the clients.


IT IS rainy time again, with only a few weeks into the season, Talking shop has noted the high levels of floods at the main entrance of Shoprite wholesale outlet in Lusaka's downtown area, on Lusaka Kafue


Every year the management of Shoprite is advised to do something about the landscape at the the premises but the advice seems to be falling on deaf hears.

Definitely, something can be down about this recurrent problem at the major shopping entity in town which should live up to its big name.
