A Civic Leader has bemoaned the lack of land to construct social amenities in his area.
Patriotic Front (PF) Chibolya Ward Councillor, Andrew Mwewa disclosed that his ward does not have enough land to build hospitals and schools to benefit the residents.
In an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today, Mr Mwewa disclosed that the Constituency Development Funds (CDF) were released in December last year for the construction of a health post to benefit the people of Chibolya Township.
The civic leader, who is also Ward Development Committee Chairperson stated that, the Committee has been having meetings with people on the way forward in securing a piece of land where a clinic will be constructed but to no avail.
He regretted that the residents of Chibolya are forced to go to Kanyama clinic to seek medical care because of the lack of a health post in the area.
And Grace Hamukuli, a resident in the area has called on government to consider building more schools to help lift education standards among the people.
Ms Hamukuli said there is only one primary school which caters for Grades one to nine while, pupils in upper secondary schools are forced to attend and acquire education from nearby Kanyama and other surrounding learning institutions.
