Daily Nation Newspaper - - North-western/ Mosi-oa-tunya News - By NA­TION RE­PORTER

I AM pleased with the de­vel­op­ment that has taken place in my ward be­tween 2016 and 2018, says Mushin­damo dis­trict Mu­longa ward coun­cilor, David Ka­tolo.

Mr Ka­tolo told the Daily Na­tion that most of the de­vel­op­ment projects which were em­barked us­ing dif­fer­ent funds had been com­pleted.

He re­vealed that among the projects that had been un­der­taken and com­pleted were a 1x3 class­room block at Lua­mala pri­mary school us­ing the ward de­vel­op­ment fund (WDF), a ma­ter­nity wing at Kamisenga ru­ral health post and a sci­ence lab­o­ra­tory at Kabis­api sec­ondary school sched­uled to be handed over this year.

He said con­struc­tion of a 1x3 class­room block at Lua­mala school will give an op­por­tu­nity to pupils in the area to get ed­u­ca­tion and con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try.

My ward is one of those wards that has seen at least some de­vel­op­ment where in­fra­struc­ture is con­cerned. A good num­ber of projects were em­barked in the ward us­ing var­i­ous funds such as the con­stituency de­vel­op­ment and the ward de­vel­op­ment fund.’’—

‘’So, I’am hop­ing that the project could be con­sid­ered in this year’s CDF so that peo­ple can ac­cess ser­vices within their vicin­ity,’’ he said.

Mr Ka­tolo was also hop­ing that some funds could be al­lo­cated to­wards con­struc­tion of a bridge at Lua­mala.

He said cur­rently the bridge was in a de­plorable state and was pos­ing a dan­ger.

Mean­while, the civic leader has called on par­ents in his ward to en­cour­age their chil­dren to be pas­sion­ate about ed­u­ca­tion which even­tu­ally helped one to be an in­formed cit­i­zen. post was
