The heavy rainfall Lusaka is receiving has continued to expose poor drainage systems in communities around the city.
Houses in several townships in Lusaka were yesterday flooded due to the heavy rains that pounded the city for over four hours.
The downpour, which started around 08:00 hours, prompted house occupants and their pets to temporarily abandon their flooded homes.
In Garden compound flooding due to inadequate drains is hampering smooth operations of some businesses. Traders and residents are appealing for authorities to intervene through construction of drainages.
Meanwhile, the body of a 40 year old man of Lusaka’s Garden overspill suspected to have drowned in Ngwerere stream on Saturday is yet to be found.
Gershom Mwape’s family has continued with the search since Saturday but so far all has been in vain.
A Muvi TV news crew found the family searching for the body of their missing relative in Ngwerere stream.
Patricia Mwape says Mr. Mwape went missing on Saturday February 10th, 2018.
