—–Siavonga District Council Secretary, Venture Kafula, has warned that council police will soon pounce on shebeen operators in the district.
Mr Kafula also observed that some bar owners sell alcohol against the stipulated operating hours.
He said some residents were drinking beer as from 06:00hours to 24:00hours and wondered what time they engaged themselves in income generating initiatives.
The Council Secretary told ZANIS in an interview today that Chibuku and Kachasu selling in the compounds was getting out of hand.
Mr Kafula described the situation as horrific, adding that it is better for bar operators to sell their commodities within the stipulated operating hours.
The Council Secretary warned that the local authority will close beer outlets if owners continue to disregard laws.
He charged that bar proprietors were just deliberately ignoring the laws and orders by government.
