One person has died while two others have been injured and rushed to hospital after the building that is under construction collapsed by Katungu shopping complex along Chilumbulu road in Libala.

According to sources closer to owners of the building who preferred to remain anonymous, the building has no approved building plans and permissions from Lusaka City Council (LCC).

An attempt to get the reaction from LCC Mayor Miles Sampa proved futile as his phone was off by press time
