Kitwe council to monitor residents’ compliance to Covid-19 health guidelines


The Kitwe City Council will soon start monitoring compliance levels to the Covid-19 health regulations among residents in order to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

Kitwe City Council Town Clerk Mbulo Seke told ZANIS in Kitwe today that lack of adherence to the regulations provided by the Ministry of Health will compromise the health and economic activities of the district and the country at large.

“If people do not adhere to the regulations, government will be forced to issue a lockdown which we are trying to avoid as it may compromise the way we do our businesses in Kitwe,” Mr. Seke said.

He has since urged people to ensure that they maintain social distancing, continue masking up in public places and sanitizing so that the spread of the pandemic is contained.

Early this week, Kitwe City Council issued a statement which guided that churches should only assemble for a period not exceeding one hour while bars should only operate from Friday to Sunday for five hours.

The statement further called for strict masking, sanitizing and social distances in public places including markets.

Meanwhile, the Professional Teachers Union of Zambia (PROTUZ) has expressed worry over the surging cases of Covid-19 being recorded on a daily bases.

The union is therefore planning to engage the Ministry of General Education to consider postponing the opening of the schools for first term in view of the rising cases of Covid-19 cases.

PROTUZ Director for Public Relations and International Affairs Brian Mwila said the union has since urged its members to seriously follow the prescribed Covid-19 guidelines at all times without complacency.

“We will be engaging the Ministry of General Education so that it considers postponing the opening of schools from 18th January until further notice because as it stands the environment is not conducive for mass gatherings,” Mr. Mwila said.

However, Ministry of General Education Permanent Secretary Jobbicks Kalumba yesterday said schools will open on the scheduled date adding that government will ensure strict adherence to the prescribed Covid-19 health guidelines for the safety of learners.


  1. Coming from a christian background, i never believed in Spiritualists or ever imagined that i would get the help of a traditional healer/sangoma. Having been employed for 6 years in the same position, training new comers that join the company, get promoted and am still stuck in the same position no matter how hard i worked or applications i place in every time there was an opportunity, this got me so stressed.At home it was not any different, my relationship was sour, we had tried for 3 years to conceive but in vain. I visited so many hospitals, used various herbs but still never conceived and husband was seeking a separation because of the family pressure,one day on social media my long time friend living in DURBAN got in touch with me,a few days later i opened up to her about what was happening in my life,she advised me to try this powerful traditional healer that had helped sometime back,i hesitated at first because i did not like the idea of going to a traditional healer,i thought for a while about contacting this person, then decided to give it a try, so i called Him, lucky for me he was available to see me and he was in the same country.Long story short,he helped me a lot,i got a much better job position in the company i had long wanted to work in,with a very good pay, my husband paid lobola at home, our wedding is this year and i am soon setting up my first side big business(Beauty Shop) anywhere i want. I must say my perception was totally wrong, if you need help too don’t wait till its too late contact Dr profisma on +27783320386 WhatApp
