Manga Bridge which connects Chama South in Muchinga Province to the rest of the country has collapsed due to heavy rains.
Chama South Member of Parliament Davison Mungandu says the bridge collapsed yesterday in the morning.
Mr. Mungandu is appealing to government to visit the site, assess the situation and put in mitigation measures.
He further says there is need for an ambulance that can be used in case of emergencies.
Mr. Mungandu further says Chama South has had a lot of floods and two lives have been lost so far.
The Chama lawmaker has also thanked government for providing one hundred tons of relief maize to the district through the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit.
He is however appealing for more relief food and seed for people to replant because some fields have been washed away by the heavy rains.
