Over one hundred traders operating at Lusaka’s Buseko market are to be evicted following a court order.
The Lusaka high court has entered into a default judgment against Nicholas Chirundu, Lucky Siame, Heieta Bwalya and many other traders.
This was after the affected traders failed to appear in court despite being issued with several summons.
According to the judgment the traders occupying stand number 27009 have also been ordered to pay the Buseko Timber and Grass Multi purpose cooperative society limited for damages for the use of their property.
In their statement of claim, the cooperative society claim that the traders were charged for trespassing, squatting and trading on someone’s piece of land.
They further claim that despite being issued with several reminders the traders continued with their unlawful act.
The cooperative society also stated that they have suffered damages as the traders have derailed the construction works.
