LUSAKA (Reuters) - Zambian President Edgar Lungu will seek parliament's approval to impose emergency laws, he said on Wednesday, after a fire gutted the country's biggest market in what Lungu said was a politically motivated arson attack.
Lungu said the fire in the nation's capital on Tuesday "bordered on economic sabotage" and was aimed at making the country ungovernable.
