Rural News Government comes to the aid of flood victims
The Office of the Vice President has sent a speedy boat to the Mazabuka District Disaster Management committee to enable the committee visit
areas threatened by floods following the rising water levels in the Kafue River caused by the opening of flood gates at Itezhi tezhi dam. 

District commissioner, Misheck Chiinda, disclosed this to ZANIS in Mazabuka today. 

Mr Chiinda said the office of the vice president deserves commendation for the quick response to the plight of people living along the Kafue basin. 

He said the provision of the boat will enable officers sensitise villagers on the impending flood threat and advise them to relocate to higher grounds. 

Last Friday, Mr Chiinda made a passionate appeal to the office of the vice president to come to the rescue of villagers whose lives are threatened by floods by providing
necessary logistics to the Mazabuka District Disaster Management to enable officers visit the affected areas. 

Mr Chiinda said reports reaching his office, indicated that only a few villagers have relocated to higher grounds despite rising water levels.
