The African Development Bank, Pit-Latrine Project will this year benefit at least 100 house-holds in Mkushi District.

This was disclosed by Mkushi District Council Chairman Reginald Chisenga during an interview this morning.

He said Itala, Inndeco, and Kawama compounds are some of the areas that have been earmarked for this special project.

He added that Mkushi District Council will soon carry out sensitization campaigns to enlighten the residents on what was expected of them during the implementation of this project.

Mr. Chisenga said the African Development Bank and the Ministry of Local Government and Housing were working on logistics and that the project will commence as soon as they finish.

Government will this year fund the rehabilitation of Mkushi High School-MAFI Road and Fiwila-Old Mkushi Road.

  1. some of these issues can be by local pipo the councils were serious.do we need african dev bank to help local pipo to dig pit latrins?if we had serious by laws,any family without pit latrine is suppose to be punished,and one such punishment wud involve digging 2 latrines,1 for his family and the second for communal places like markets.in colonials times our parents were paying taxes and pipo complied,now yu fail to make pipo dig their own pit latrines,this is shameful.what is happening to our councils?and yu’re wondering why yu’ve cholera every year.african dev bank wud come in handy thru provision of boreholes fo rural pipo to have clean drinking water,and not vibuzi pilizi!

  2. This is a manifestation of a chronic maladmninistration of one entity called Zambia. How do you even go to the press to announce that ADB is funding Pit Latrines to 100 families. It would have been news if the announcement was flash toilets in the villages. When are we going to move forward in our beloved countries? Please MMD try to show leadership and make some memorable exit come 2011. NAVUPA BABA

  3. Even Vimbuzi sure! Im so ashamed i can’t even comment. What are they using now? buckets Plactics or the bush?
