The Commuter Rights Association of Zambia CRAZ has noted with sadness the non-adherence to the Public Health Guidelines on Covid19 in Nakonde District, one of the epicenters of the coronavirus.

CRAZ President Aaron Kamuti says according to a study undertaken by the Association and other stakeholders in Nakonde recently, residents of Nakonde are refusing to wear face Masks and practicing other important health guidelines.

He said that people of Nakonde are now copying neighbouring Tanzania, where Covid19 Health guidelines are not fully observed.

Mr. Kamuti has therefore appealed to the ministry of health and other stakeholders to intervene on the matter adding that Nakonde is still an epicenter of the deadly Pandemic.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
