Over ten schools in Kitwe will delay the 2018 calendar following their failure to meet better sanitary conditions as set by the public health committee, District Commissioner Binwell Mpundu has disclosed. He said a committee put in place to inspect schools has recommended to the affected schools measures that will improve sanitary conditions. The District Commissioner said most of the affected schools are situated in unplanned settlements and needed more attention to address the issues. Mpundu said government will not take a risk of compromising the lives of children who have been the most hit in the district. “The outbreak of cholera should be treated with a lot care and all schools that have poor sanitary conditions will not open so that we safeguard the lives of our children. If you look at the six cases we have recorded in Kitwe you will realise that five of the cases involve children,” he stated. Mpundu further disclosed that same schools declared unfit for lessons went on to open due to miscommunication among authorities in the district. “We had a challenge were some schools opened despite having failed the test but all that has to be addressed so that we avoid further cholera outbreaks,” he explained.

Suspended Patriotic Front Copperbelt vice chairman Stanley Chandindi and provincial youth secretary Christopher Kalenge have resigned from their positions with immediate effect. The two who had been suspended from the party for gross misconduct have indicated that they will remain ordinary members of the ruling party. Chandindi said he has already exculpated himself and feels it was time to give chance to others in the party. “For me I was charged for merely speaking on one of the forums but my resignation doesn’t necessarily mean I have left the party. I am just leaving the position which I had serves diligently since I was elected,” he added. He added, “I harbour no feelings. I have worked well with everyone I just feel that maybe its time for others to also contribute to the growth of this great party. I don’t think I have resigned because of the suspension that is not correct.” And provincial Youth Secretary Christopher Kalenge said the decision to resign from his position will allow him focus on other mobilisation programs in the party. He said the Patriotic Front remains the most attractive in the country and it is important that members are allowed to practice tenets of Democracy.
