Speaking when he toured the Emergency Water Supply and Sanitation project works in Lusaka’s Kanyama, Matero and Mandevu townships, Dr Chanda said he was impressed with the projects in the three townships.

He noted that residents will see improved clean and safe drinking water once the project is completed.

Dr Chanda said authorities in Kanyama constituency should engage Industrial owners to ensure that ground water is not polluted.

He further said Kanyama needs urgent attention in terms of water and sanitation services so that people in the township and surrounding areas can have access to clean and safe water.
