Luano District Deputy Council Chairperson Benford Katiti has reported the collapse of 2 bridges that link Luano District with Rufunsa District in Chimika area.

Mr.Katiti , who is also PF’s Chimika Ward councilor,said that the 2 bridges were along the Mwapula and Musambangomwa streams along Chitemalesa Feeder road that links the two districts.

He said that he is appealing for help from the Disaster Management Mitigation Unit(DMMU) to help in repairing the infrastructure that had been damaged by heavy rains early this week.

He said that this development had impacted negatively on the communities of Luano’s Chimika area, adding that residents bought most of their food from Munyeta in Rufunsa.

Luano District Council Director of Works Elias Mwalaba confirmed that he had also noted the collapse of another bridge in Kaundula chiefdom’s Nkomashi ward.

Mr. Mwalaba assured residents in both Nkomashi and Chimika wards that his office would accord the matter with much urgency.

He also took the opportunity to urge other civic leaders to report all damage of public infrastructure promptly to his office.
