Economy MMC embarks on a K600 million street lighting project

Municipal Council (MMC) on the Copperbelt Province has set aside K 600 million for street lightning projects in the border town.

Town Clerk, Charles Mwandila, disclosed the development in an interview with the Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) in Mufulira today.

Mr Mwandila said some of the streets to be lit include the Mufulira/Ndola road and the Sabina/Mufulira road which links the district to other mining towns.

He also revealed that the council would also light both residential and mining townships roads, including the Butondo and Jomo roads.

Mr Mwandila said the council will raise the money for the project from its own coffers, adding that it had the capability to complete project with the help of residents who should be consistent in paying up their ground rates.

The Mufulira Municipal council has set aside K 16 billion in its 2007 budget for various developmental purposes.
