Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company says water will soon be connected to Kamwala South,Chalala and Libala South once the service lines are in place.
Speaking in an interview in Lusaka yesterday, Mr. Mwale said the named places have had no water because the service lines were either not in place or have not been connected.
Mr. Mwale says it takes only 21 days to have water connected in a place where there is a network, adding that people in these areas should report to Lusaka Water and Sewerage company if they need to have their service lines connected.
However, he said some residents in the same areas have water regardless of the whole area not having the commodity because they have had their service lines connected.
Mr. Mwale said his company is ready to meet the residents’ needs saying it would be ideal for the to consult the company on the right procedure to follow when having water connected in their homes.
Some residents have expressed concern that since they do not have bore holes they are subjected to drawing water from their neighbours at a fee saying a lot of money is being spent on water.
One of the residents, Regina Banda expressed sadness at the water utility company for not connecting the commodity saying she has been in the area close to three years but there has been no water in her home.
She further complained of long distances where they draw water saying the charges on the commodity make it difficult to conduct chores at home.
