Bulawayo's Spamprekini Market Burns

Bulawayo's Spamprekini Market Burns

A fire that broke out at the Spamprekini informal factory market in Bulawayo scorched a huge section of the place, with scores of traders losing their stock and raw materials.

According to a report by The Chronicle, the fire broke out at 5:45AM. The cause of the fire is not yet known. Some witnesses though said they suspected a gas leak that led to an explosion. The fire was eventually contained by firefighters by mid-morning.

Said one business person:

“We are in deep shock, devastated by what happened here. We have lost everything. Millions of finished products, materials and equipment have been lost.

We appeal to the Government to speedily assist us to get back on our feet,” 

Spamprekini serves as a factory for informal entrepreneurs producing sofas, wardrobes, kitchen units, tables, wooden doors, amoung other things. There has not been any indication of human casualties from the fire.

Why is it that only these informal wood tech factories are being gutted and destroyed by fire, the same happened to Glenview home industry. Something is going on in the background.

I was at the site,its so painful because it took fire fighters a long time to put out the fire,Can you imagine a fire engine ran out of water literally a few minutes after arriving at the site,pipes were leaking n water just got wasted,the equipment is just old.
