Kazimolwa ward councilor Steward Simutenda in Mbala district has expressed concerned at the deplorable state of police houses in the area.
Mr. Simutenda said the police houses are in a bad state as they have developed big cracks.
He said something should urgently be done as the cracks are posing a danger to the police officers.
He revealed that some officers have since deserted the camp and opted to rent houses elsewhere.
The councilor disclosed this in a statement released to ZANIS in Mbala on Thursday.
Mr. Simutenda explained that the situation at both the camp and police station was worrying.
He said there was no running water forcing the officers to draw untreated water from the nearby Lake Chila.
Mr. Simutenda has urged Chambeshi Water and Sewerage Company to quickly address the problem of water at the police camp to ease the officers’ problems.
