The Kasama Municipal Council has given a seven-day ultimatum to all unlicensed liquor traders to leave the streets of Kasama or face prosecution.
Kasama district Mayor Fredrick Chisanga noted that the district has recorded an increase in makeshift liquor stores around Kasama.
He charged that the local authority as well as officers from other law enforcement agencies will next week begin demolishing the makeshift stores and arrest the owners who have gone against the laws.
Meanwhile the Mayor has also reminded street vendors to vacate the streets before May this year as earlier agreed with the council.
Recently Kasama district commissioner Kelly Kashiwa directed the local authority to clamp down the rampant illegal selling of liquor in the streets of Kasama.
