Amend articles of association

Headlines Amend articles of association

GOVERNMENT has directed water utility companies to amend their articles of association to incorporate new management concepts such as board composition and corporate governance.

Kitwe Town Clerk, Ali Simwinga, told a special full council meeting in Kitwe that he was in receipt of a circular from the Ministry of Local Government and Housing through which participating local authorities in the establishment of water utility companies had been directed to amend articles of association.

Mr Simwinga said government wanted amendments so that water utilities could maximise the existing organisational structures.

“The strategy of allowing councils to run water supply and sanitation services were to encourage groups of local authorities to establish commercial utilities.

This is why government started the implementation of the water policy, which promoted decentralisation, and commercialisation of water supply and sanitation services to promote efficiency and sustainability in service delivery,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Simwinga revealed that government had disbursed K120 million for pothole mending and marking of Kitwe urban roads.

Mr Simwinga thanked government for the money, which he said would go a long way in improving the road network.

“We have also received another K5 million under the Lands Development Fund from the Ministry of Lands.

The money will help the council to construct drainages and prepare layout plans.
