Kang’ombe disclosed that amount raised when a Company Sherwood Greene donated K 2, 200 towards the Pave Kitwe walkways project. He said with the overwhelming response received from the general public, the council was now considering to extend the project to different communities in the district. Kang’ombe said the council has targeted to pave over 400km in the Central Business District in 2018 and has set plans of procuring paving machines for easy implementation of the project. “This is money that has come through from corporate donors and individuals. The scope now indicates that we need to do 400km of pavers, instead of just the CBD. We have not used any of the money we have collected since August, the money is still in the account,†he said. Kang’ombe said once the equipment is procured, councillors will now be empowered with resources to employ local people and help in the manufacturing of pavers in their respective wards.
