The Kabwe Disaster Management Team Committee is saddened that water tanks taps that where put to provide clean water in a bid to curb cholera, merely four days after installation have been stolen.

The team led by Kabwe District Commissioner Mr. MUSONDA CHUNGA was dismayed by the failure of the residents of Makululu and Nakoli un-planned settlement to protect public property. The six water tanks were brought to Kabwe after an outbreak of cholera in the two respective areas for the people to have clean and safe water.

The District Commissioner said the tanks and the taps where mounted in the two areas because government cared about the people of the two areas. Mr. Chunga said he is very disappointed with the actions of the people of the two areas as they were retarding development.

Meanwhile during the same tour in Makululu; the District Commissioner bemoaned the unhygienic manner in which meat is being sold at Kamanda Market. He said it was sad that the market which was recently closed in order to prevent the spread of cholera had not put in place any measures to ensure that meat and other products are sold in a conducive environment.

The senior government official has appealed to the marketeers to sale and do their business in a clean and conducive environment so that the council and the health team could not close it again.
