Residents of Matero’s Maiteneke ward protesting the poor drainage system in the area which they say has gone unattended for close to a decade now. The residents say they are tired of living with a blocked sewage for the past 10 years. According to residents, even attempts to report the blockages to the Lusaka Water and Sewerage have not yielded any success. The residents say the company has failed to do a good job as any attempts to clear the blockage only last a day before the situation recedes. Area councillor Annie Chinyanta has been involved to help find a solution and engaged a number of companies but all in vain. Parents are also worried that their school going children risk contracting communicable diseases through the contaminated water. And residents of Woodlands and Chilenje townships have called a meeting with other stakeholders to understand the lease City of Lusaka has entered with a local contractor. The developer has already moved on site and clearing the land. The clubhouse is earmarked for demolition. The community is worried because of lack of communication between the club and residents. Zambia Environmental Agency has yet to approve the plan for a construction of a shopping mall. In Kalulushi, the Municipal Council has followed the path of Ndola and Kabwe councils where the government have suspended the land agent license. It’s understood lack of transparency when issuing land has given rise to numerous cases of corruption in the land acquisition process. Officials like Counselors and Council officers are allegedly among the major beneficiaries.
