Our goal remains to clean up and dispose of the waste produced on a daily basis that poses a danger to the health and safety of our community immediately and also to attend to the solid waste that has built up over time which is also being tackled. “I would like to thank you all for your encouraging words and contributions as we work to attend to this matter.” President Lungu was also on the ground in recent days to clean the city alongside army personnel.
