Zambia: Mulonga Water Services Poor

WITH due respect to our provider Mulonga Water and Sewerage Company, I would like to say that the water we are getting leaves much to be desired.

The water in Chingola is erratic, muddy and dirty. I wonder if the water which we are consuming will not have long lasting effects on us healthwise.

I am not a medical personnel but there is an adage which says "prevention is better than cure."

Kindly provide Chingola residents with clean, pure and safe water. It is said that "water is life."

I would also like to ask Mulonga to engage the community and explain to them as to the challenges they are facing - dialogue is important.

Let us face challenges together. We the residents are your partners in development.
