Zambia: Stop Corridor Disease

GOVERNMENT should do something about the outbreak of suspected corridor disease in Southern Province which is threatening livestock.

Southern Province is an animal disease prone area and hundreds of livestock have been lost in the province in the past decade.

It is therefore important for the Ministry of Agriculture to apply stringent measures to ensure that the disease is completely contained otherwise, it will defeat the very purpose of the cattle restocking programme which is aimed at strengthening the local beef industry.

Thumbs up NCC

Kudos to the Ndola City Council for ensuring that there are enough speed humps on some of the city's busy roads.

The latest of these speed humps are those just erected across some sections of Lowenthal Road at Zambian Breweries plant, leading to Misundu area.

This has helped to reduce over speeding by over zealous motorists.

But can authorities please ensure that there are signs to notify motorists about the presence of these speed humps and also paint them to make them visible especially at night?
