Inyambo Yeta lobbies for road works
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.
