Siavonga District Commissioner (DC) Lovemore Kanyama has urged Siavonga residents to appreciate the Government’s effort of mending the township roads in the district
Mr. Kanyama Says government will in the initial stage mend potholes before embarking on rehabilitation of township roads.
He said the rehabilitation of the entire township roads will be done when the Road Development Agency RDA’s (RDA) releases the funds.
“Government through my office is doing everything possible to rehabilitate roads and other infrastructures in Siavonga,” Mr Kanyama said.
He said heavy rains experienced in the 2016/2017 damaged most of the roads in Siavonga.
Mr. Kanyama said the rains being experienced this year has also worsened the situation.
The DC said he appreciates criticism coming from Siavonga residents that mending the potholes is not enough and that their concerns will be taken into account for better roads to be constructed.
“Yes, certain individuals called my office on why I have allowed the RDA to mend the Siavonga township roads instead of fully rehabilitating them,” Mr Kanyama noted.
He has since appealed to Siavonga residents to cooperate with RDA to carry out their works without interference.
