Now Manyinga has a civic center

Rural News Now Manyinga has a civic center

Manyinga District  Council in Northwestern Province has constructed the first ever civic center  at a cost of K362,000.

ZANIS reports that District Council Chairperson Davinnox Chikuta confirmed the development in an interview today adding  that the funds were sourced from the Local Government Equalization Funds.

From its inception in 2014,the new Local authority has been renting a building from the defunct  MUZAMA Company.

Meanwhile,the Local Authority  plans to embark on Capital Projects such as the  Installation of Solar Powered Street Lights, rehabilitation and construction of  National Assembly Office,rehabilitation of Council Markets, construction and rehabilitation of  Township Roads, construction of a Bus Station, and a modern Guest House to raise revenue.

The council has also given ZESCO  1.7 Hectares of Land,where the Power Utility Company intends to Construct a Sub Station and supporting Structures.

Mr Chikula  said all these Projects are aimed at changing the face of Manyinga as a District and a hub of development.

The development has excited Stakeholders in the District.

Manyinga Stakeholders Association Chairman Patrick Kamboyi said that when the local authority is functional it means development is near.

He added that the people of Manyinga have been advocating for development and they are now happy that their cry has been answered.

    • IF A JOURNALIST WROTE A STORY IN THE PAPER ABOUT A TOWN AND PEOPLE ARE STILL ASKING THE WHEREABOUTS OF SUCH A TOWN, THEN JUST KNOW THAT THE JOURNALIST IS A VERY USELESS ONE. BECAUSE, INFORMING PEOPLE ABOUT THE WHEREABOUTS OF THE PLACE HE/SHE IS WRITING ABOUT IS JUST ONE OF THE BASICS. I AM ALSO ASKING WHERE IS THIS TOWN. BY THE WAY I HAVEN’T READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE.

  1. how can you not know 6 months after elections. this is one place I remember along side dundumweezi that did what should not happen in a free and fair election. based in north western province, Manyika is one of the new districts that has received un appreciated lion’s share of the Zambian cake. please am just joking.

  2. @Honest: It appears you also do not know the place, there is no such place as. Manyinka. This is Manyinga previously on Kabompo district of North western province. By the way is it the responsibility of a local authority to build a National Assembly office?
