Reconstructing a mini-market = reconstructing one’s life
End of January 2010, Buzogwe mini-market in Mpanda township was gutted down by a fire believed to have been caused by an electric fault. The Town Council was collecting levies from petty business persons here. The latter had to undertake reconstruction of the mini-market and THEIR lives to try and go back to their normal life. The Council contributed nothing to help the initiative. After reconstruction of the mini -market, the Council will go there to continue collecting levy. This is rather puzzling. Why do people pay levy (or tax)? It is so that the money collected may somehow get back to them in terms of improved service and assistance in times of need. Someone here has got to give some proper explanations, no?
