[This Day] As the year, 2017 winds down, it is imperative to assess the contributions of the eighth Nigerian Senate against the backdrop of this aphorism by poet, Mary Oliver; "To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work." We have a very "good" habit in these parts by focusing on the negatives in a way that blinds us to some of the good work that may have been done.

The poor state of toilets and infrastructure in all the bus stations in Kitwe calls for immediate attention, Kitwe Mayor Christopher Kang’ombe has observed. Kang’ombe has expressed disappointment that the infrastructure has been left to deteriorate to extremely dangerous levels. He has since put to task Director of Housing to ensure that part of the money being collected in the bus stations is reinvested to improve the state of infrastructure. Kang’ombe said bus drivers and commuters are currently experiencing challenges because most bus stations have no shelter. “Obviously it is disappointing that the infrastructure is in such a status, but as a council, we are concerned and wondering how the infrastructure has deteriorated to such levels. I have asked director housing that a portion of what is collected from this station is ploughed back,” he said. Kang’ombe has asked for patience from the bus drivers for the council to address the issues affecting them. “Our drivers need to give us some time. We are going to mobilise local resources and see how best we can move in as an immediate measure, but obviously you are aware that there is modern bus terminus coming up next year, the contractor is mobilising resources,” he added. Most toilets at bus station are in a bad shape and pose as a health hazard to members of the public. The post Kitwe Mayor Bemoans Poor State Of Toilets appeared first on Zambia Reports.

The National Democratic Congress Party (NDC) has demanded the immediate resignation of Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja for alleged unprofessional conduct. NDC National Youth chairperson Charles Kabwita has charged that the behaviour exhibited by the Inspector General of Police in appointing eight Chinese nationals in the Zambia Police Reserve is an act of gross misconduct. He said with such behaviour there is no need for the Inspector General of Police to continue holding his position when he has exhibited levels of unprofessionalism. Kabwita has said it is shocking that Kanganga commissioned the Chinese nationals without putting in mind the danger such a move poses on the country’s security. “The behaviour by the Inspector General of Police is disappointing and we are demanding that he resigns from his position for his unprofessional conduct” Kabwita said. He has further condemned Home Affairs Minister Steven Kampyongo for allowing such a move to go on. Kabwita said the silence from the home affairs Minister is a sign of failure and should be fired. Kanganja has since rescinded his decision on the appointment of eight Chinese nationals as Zambia police reserve. The post Kanganja Must Resign – NDC Youth Leader appeared first on Zambia Reports.
