Lusaka tombstones sellers to trade from the cemetery 


Lusaka City Council (LCC) is taking action to relocate tombstone sellers from various unauthorized locations to designated areas near cemeteries

The move aims to address the scattered nature of tombstone trade and ensure that tombstones are sold in appropriate places.

LCC public relations manager, Chola Mwamba mentioned that the council has notified tombstone vendors about this shift, emphasizing the need for proper locations for such sales.

“It’s an issue that we have been working on and we have actually given these tombstone sellers notice that they need to be relocated to places that are going to be ideal for them to be selling tombstones from,” Mwamba said.

The initiative comes in response to the haphazard placement of tombstones by traders in Lusaka, which has led to tombstones being visible on roadsides and other unsuitable places.

According to Mwamba, this practice isn’t suitable, especially considering the potential negative impression it may give to visitors seeing tombstones displayed in inappropriate places.

To regulate this behavior, Lusaka mayor, Chilando Chitangala explained that the LCC plans to allocate designated areas for tombstone sales and offer small plots of land for vendors to operate from, for which they will be required to pay.

“Next time, we are not going to see a casket being sold along Great East Road,” Said Chitangala during a council meeting.

Once the relocation operation is complete, individuals interested in purchasing tombstones can visit authorized selling points, including Lusaka’s Chingwere, Mutumbi, Leopards Hil Memorial Park, and Old Leopards Hill cemeteries.
