K300m Isoka water project nears completion

MAPALO LUPUPA, Chinsali
GOVERNMENT has started building a modern water reticulation system worth K300 million that is expected to end water shortages in Isoka district in Muchinga Province.
Muchinga Province permanent secretary Bright Nundwe said in an interview yesterday that China Jinxin has been hired to do the work.
Mr Nundwe said the construction works begun last year and are expected to be completed before the end of this year.
“I am happy to say that the construction of the water reticulation system in my district, which commenced early last year, will be completed this year. This is a very important project for the people of Isoka,” Mr Numdwe said.
He said the district has been experiencing serious water problems, but the situation will improve once the project is completed.
Mr Nundwe said Isoka residents walk long distances to fetch clean and safe water, while others go for weeks without it.
“The people in Isoka district are happy with Government’s decision to embark on the construction of a water system because every household will be assured of water supply 24 hours,” he said.
Mr Nundwe expressed happiness with the various development projects Government is implementing in the area such as the first ever trades training institute that is under construction, township roads and a girls’ secondary school.
He urged Isoka residents to guard the water reticulation system against vandalism so that the facility can be used for the intended purposes.
