Kitwe Mayor Christopher Kang’ombe has warned that the council will demolish any structures found constructed on the 20 hectare piece of land earmarked for a modern dumpsite in Ichimpe-Mindolo area.

Mr. Kang’ombe said illegal structures have continued to pose a challenge to implementation of many developmental projects.

Speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Kitwe yesterday, Mr. Kang’ombe said squatters should not delay the construction of the dumpsite scheduled to begin next month.

He noted that Kitwe residents need a dumpsite where garbage can be disposed off.

And Kitwe residents have been elated with plans to construct a modern dumpsite in the district.

Patience Fwalanga, a resident of Ndeke Township said the move was long overdue as the old Uchi dumpsite was too close to residential areas.

Ms. Fwalanga noted that the re-location of the Uchi Dumpsite will reduce flies in Ndeke and Nkana East residential areas.

Kitwe City Council is earmarked to construct a modern dumpsite in Mindolo-ichimpe area as the old Uchi dumpsite is supposed to be closed within the first quarter of this year.

  1. This Mayor prevented Cholera in his city way before the first case was recorded here in Lusaka. The few cholera cases that were recorded in Kitwe were spread by some people from Lusaka. That’s the way to go Mayor, remove the illegal squatters from that land and bring more sanity to Kitwe. The Lusaka people will emulate you. Some thought, by removing street vendors you were making them unpopular but today you have been vindicated.
