  1. You are showing photos of everything but the dam which burst and where…why do you assign a ZAF senior officer to this disaster when you have Civil Engineers, planners and Structural Engineer officers at ZNS with heavy Chink machinery at their disposal.

  2. This is what happens when contracts are given based on suspicious circumstances. Who ever was given the contract did not build the dam to standard.

  3. DMMU has made available 110 bags of Mealie meal, 10 boxes (2litres by 12) and 100 sets of kitchen sets.“Other items include 100 packs of dignity kits ,1000 facemasks, 100 blankets and 100 tents. Government will move all the affected people to Mumbwa Trades school for temporal shelter until the situation is corrected,” Mr Kabwe said.
    It seems this Kabwe boy has alot of maize in his possession its no surprise Iris is busy handing out gifts on campaigns

  4. Very sad for our people especially during the festive period. Government is doing all it can to help these unfortunate people. It is during times like these when we need those self proclaimed billionaires who claim to care for this nation and intend to rule it, to come out and donate money and goods. Where are they? Too much castle when it is stolen privatisation money

  5. Blessing in disguise.
    1??Much water can be impounded and used for mini hydro power projects.
    2??Big dams can be constructed to support big irrigation schemes to produce crops off the rain season.
    3??More indigenous trees can be planted and watered from the dam water.
    4??More carbon can be sunk by increasing tree plantation hectarage.

  6. 1??Seasonal Migration can be considered in flood prone areas.
    2??Change in design practice of dams and bridges to accommodate the changing climate.
    3??Change in building design can be considered; floor level to be relatively above flood levels.

  7. Only an utterly la7y mind craves for donations and hand outs when their is a disaster no matter how small as its easy to steal….it doesn’t even know why tax is paid to govt.

  8. VERY SAD INDEED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! POOR PEOPLE LOSING OUT
    BUT REALLY WHAT DO YOU EXPECT WHEN GOV AND COUNCILS ALLOW PEOPLE TO BUILD IN LOW LYING AREAS
    UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS NOT THE LAST PLACE TO SUFFER
    MORE PLACES TO FOLLOW AND OBVIOUSLY THE HEAVY RAINS WILL BE BLAMED
