Daily Nation Newspaper - - HOME NEWS -

By AN­DREW MUKOMA SE­NIOR Chief Inyambo Yeta of the Lozi speak­ing peo­ple of Mwandi, Sesheke and Mu­lobezi districts in Western Province has asked the gov­ern­ment through Western Province Min­is­ter Nathaniel Mubuk­wanu to work on the Simungoma-Sichili road.

Se­nior Chief Yeta says with the rains that are ap­proach­ing, the road will be im­pass­able.

He said that cur­rently, the road was in a bad state to the ex­tent that peo­ple mov­ing from Simungoma have to take more than five to six hours to cover a dis­tance of about 86 kilo­me­tres.

Se­nior Chief Yeta who at the week­end cel­e­brated his 40th year on the throne said that his peo­ple were go­ing through a tough time when it came to move­ments.

Se­nior Chief Yeta who spoke through Barotse Royal Es­tab­lish­ment chair­per­son Muku­tulu Sinyani is op­ti­mistic that once the road is worked on, it will link Mu­lobezi and Mwandi with­out any chal­lenges.

He said that it was the re­spon­si­bil­ity of gov­ern­ment to en­sure its peo­ple have ac­ces­si­ble roads in their re­spec­tive ar­eas.

Mean­while, Se­nior Chief Yeta has called on his peo­ple in the three districts to con­tinue work­ing hard.

He said that be­cause of their hard work, the three districts have rare cases of mal­nu­tri­tion.
