Residents of Kanyama township in Lusaka are rioting, demanding that the government allows them to trade.
The residents this morning took to the streets, burning tyres and calling on government to allow them to trade.
Police who rushed to the scene were attacked as the angry mob pelted all sorts of objects at them.
Reinforcement has been called in to quell the riots.
The Traders were banned from selling in the streets following the outbreak of cholera which has hit Lusaka with Kanyama having recorded the highest number and a Cholera centre has since been setup.
