I WRITE to appeal to Zambia Environmental Management Agency to always do on spot checks on buildings that need their professional indulgence to safeguard people’s lives.
There is a general outcry that ZEMA is not doing enough in this aspect.
The agency should never allow a building that is partially complete to be open to the general public for it is a health hazard.
I therefore implore ZEMA to be carrying periodic spot checks on the building they authorize to be constructed and offer guidance to the property owners on the security concerns at every stage of construction.
Life is so precious that it should not be lost in an expected circumstance of negligence.
