Lusaka City Council suspends operations at Royal Park Platinum over unsanitary conditions


The Lusaka City Council (LCC) has suspended operations at Royal Park Platinum in Chilenje due to unsanitary conditions.

LCC Public Relations Manager, Chola Mwamba, stated that a team of officers from the Public Health and Engineering departments conducted an inspection of the premises.

In a statement issued in Lusaka on Wednesday, Mwamba reported that the inspection revealed a blocked and collapsed sewer system, resulting in the discharge of effluent (fecal matter) into the open environment, contrary to the Public Health Act Section 67, Cap 295 of the Laws of Zambia.

“The premises has been instructed to rectify the defects immediately, after which they will be allowed to resume operations,” Mwamba said.

Additionally, Mwamba noted that the team warned Eden Queen Bar in Libala South, along Lilayi Road, to comply with legal requirements.

This directive followed complaints from residents about loud music causing noise disturbances.

Mwamba assured the public of the Local Authority’s commitment to enforcing liquor licensing regulations, public health guidelines and ensuring that all businesses operate in a safe and sanitary environment.
