Marketeers at Kitwe’s Chisokone market have opposed  the construction of a modern Market.

Marketeers talked to  by Zambian Eye, said constructing a modern market at Chisokone market would be inconveniencing to them adding that putting down some already existing infrastructures would be costly.

“We appreciate the idea, but putting up a modern market here would be not easy, that would just be creating confusion, where are they going to take us,” complained one of the marketeers.

But PF Chisokone branch chairman Mulonda Mwanza, said those opposed to the construction of a modern market were enemies of development and their views should not be tolerated.

“It is very hard to understand that some people are opposed to the construction of a modern market,we need to move forward,” he said.

Chisokone market in Kitwe is one of the oldest, congested and filthy markets in Zambia.
