Daily Nation Newspaper - - METRO NEWS - By LINDA SOKO TEMBO

THERE

is need to find out from Lusaka Wa­ter Sew­er­age Com­pany (LWSC) why the res­i­dents of Kabanana site and ser­vice have been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing er­ratic wa­ter sup­ply even af­ter work­ing on the tank that sup­plies wa­ter to them, Raphael Chota Ward 22 coun­cil­lor, Joseph Tamba has said.

Mr Tamba ex­pressed sad­ness that de­spite the ef­forts that had been done to work on the leak­ing tank, Kabanana had con­tin­ued to face wa­ter cri­sis forc­ing the res­i­dents to move long dis­tances in search of the com­mod­ity.

In an in­ter­view with the Daily Na­tion, Mr Tamba said he had re­ceived a num­ber of com­plaints from res­i­dents in the area re­gard­ing the wa­ter cri­sis.

“The res­i­dents of Kabanana site and ser­vice in block 30, 40, 50, 60, and 90 have been af­fected by wa­ter cri­sis.

“The wa­ter tank was leak­ing but it has since been worked on but we are sur­prised that there is a wa­ter cri­sis.

“As coun­cil­lor I ‘ am look­ing into that is­sue and I ‘am very much aware that there is a short­age of wa­ter sup­ply in the area,” he said.

Mr Tamba was hope­ful that once he or­gan­ises for the meet­ing with util­ity com­pany the wa­ter sit­u­a­tion would im­prove in the area.
