Kabwata Ward 6 councilor Longa Chiboboka has assured taxi operators who complained of having been unfairly removed from their rank along Chilumbulu road that they will remain there until an alternative place is found.
Mr Chiboboka has since appealed to the private developer who has legally acquired the said piece of land to allow the taxi drivers to continue operating from there until the structure to be put up is fully constructed.
The civic leader has however confirmed that the land was legally sold to the private developer by the Lusaka city council in 2011 according to the documentation obtained from the civic centre and expressed hope that once the new structure is completed ,there will be room for taxi operators.
Recently, taxi operators in kabwata near SDA fought running battles with the police after they were told to vacate the land as the private owner wanted to commence construction works at the land in question.
