Daily Nation Newspaper - - HOME NEWS - By KALOBWE BWALYA

TECH­NOCRATS should de­vise the best way of deal­ing with the weed chok­ing Ka­fue River be­cause Gov­ern­ment has the ca­pac­ity to re­move it once a strat­egy is found, Lusaka Prov­ince Min­is­ter Bow­man Lusambo said in Ka­fue yes­ter­day. Mr Lusambo said Ka­fue River was very im­por­tant to the na­tion and dredgers would soon be de­ployed to re­move the weed be­cause there were strate­gic in­stal­la­tions for wa­ter sup­ply and elec­tric­ity gen­er­a­tion as well as fish­ing ac­tiv­i­ties which could be jeop­ar­dized by the weed on the river. Mr Lusambo was speak­ing af­ter as­sess­ing the weed on the river with of­fi­cials from the Min­istry of Hous­ing and In­fra­struc­ture De­vel­op­ment led by Per­ma­nent Sec­re­tary Charles Mushota, and of­fi­cials from ZESCO and Lusaka Wa­ter and Sew­er­age Com­pany, among oth­ers. Mr Lusambo said the weed was chock­ing the river and should be re­moved ur­gently and urged the tech­nocrats to come up with the best strat­egy of do­ing so. Pres­i­dent Lungu on Satur­day took to task Mr Lusambo and Mr Mushota over the weed en­gulf­ing the river.
