Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company (LWSC) says it supplies 220 million litres of water to its clients per day.

Company General Manager David Ngenda disclosed that the supply is far much below the required 426 million litres of water demand for Lusaka per day.

Mr. Ngenda explained that the company has therefore, embarked on a project to expand the Ioland Treatment Plant that will see an additional 150 million litres per day.

He was speaking in Kafue today when NWASCO media fellowship team visited the water treatment plant.

ZANIS reports that the LWSC General Manager disclosed that 45 percent of water applied to Lusaka comes from the Kafue treatment plant, stating that the remaining percentage is supplied by the 120 boreholes in Lusaka city.

He further stated that the Iolanda plant is being constructed under the Millennium Challenge programme at a total of US Dollars 26 million.



  1. The Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company says underground water in the city of Lusaka is no longer safe for consumption. And Millennium Challenge Account Zambia communications and outreach director Dr John Kunda says the Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company needs over US$4 billion to meet the water supply demand of the city’s residents. Speaking during a Water Aid-organised event last evening at Radisson Blu Hotel in Lusaka, Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company (LWSC) marketing and public relations manager Patson Phiri explained that while Lusaka had more than 400,000 houses that were eligible for connection to the company’s sanitation system, only 33,000 people were being serviced. — October 2017


  2. IS LWSC Boss not refeered to as MANAGING DIRECTOR? But here is General manager, the MD Dr sylvester mashamba is a performer, all these issues will be dealt with soonest the man is above board. The only challenge is how to deal with AKOSWE KUNYA CHINYENYENYE!!!


  3. Aside from water issues. In matero we have power failure every day especially at night. Right now there is no power. This is happening when these ritual killers/human parts harvesters are ravaging the area. Zesco do you derive joy in the killings. Sometimes one wonders what sort of people are running these utility firms. Each time you call zesco their phone’s are busy.
