Luangeni residents get three boreholes

MAYENGO NYIRENDA, Chipata
LUANGENI Patriotic Front (PF) Member of Parliament Charles Zulu has handed over three boreholes worth K90,000 in his constituency to provide clean and safe drinking water in three villages.
Mr Zulu said a borehole has been drilled in each of the three villages at a cost of K30,000.
He was speaking when he handed over the boreholes at the three villages on Friday.
Mr Zulu said it was the PF’s desire to ensure by 2021 every Zambian had access to clean drinking water.
“I will ensure that every household has safe drinking water in Luangeni to reduce the number of water-borne diseases,” Mr Zulu said.
He pledged to drill more boreholes before 2021 so that his electorate could have safe and clean drinking water.
Mr Zulu said all the 10 dams in Luangeni Constituency would be stocked with fingerlings and the exercise was expected to be completed by the end of this year.
He said this shortly after he visited Mkoche Dam, which has been stocked with fingerlings and breeders (fish) at a cost of K30,000 last year.
Mr Zulu, who is former deputy minister of Energy, urged Luangeni residents to avoid using bad methods of fishing which would deplete the fingerlings.
He said President Lungu recently called on Zambians to invest in fish farming hence the stocking of the dam with fingerlings and breeders.
Mr Zulu said fish farming has a potential of uplifting the country’s nutritional status and income.
He said women and youths should engage in fish farming and any other development programme in line with President Lungu’s vision of empowering vulnerable Zambians.
Mr Zulu said as a law-maker, it is also his duty to ensure that President Lungu’s vision of empowering citizens does not fail.
