Floods cut off Sinazongwe district

Rural News Floods cut off Sinazongwe district

By Tovin Ngombe

Sinazongwe District has been cut off from the rest of the country in Southern Province for the third time following the floods that have washed away the exposed culvert.

The culvert exposed along the Maamba/Batooka road at Sinazeze has collapsed owing to the excessive rainfall that the district has continued to receive.

Sinenge Ward Councilor Joe Siabula said several motorists from Choma and Lusaka are stranded.
In December and January this year three culverts collapsed and paralysed the transport system in the district a situation that lead to the hiking of prices on all essential basic food stuffs.

Today the highest price of a roller meal bag is fetching at K60, 000 and K50, 000 in Kafwambila where the area is still inaccessible.

The Sinazeze culvert is the fourth culvert to be cut off while several culverts are in the process of being washed away.

Sinazongwe District Commissioner warned people to prepare for a worse situation than anticipated in the district.

In January Road Development Agency (RDA) Head of Public Relations Officer Royce Saili said 11 eleven dangerous spots have been identified and they would be worked on for a month.
