The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) on Saturday were left shocked after the network system went down during the open day organised for Copperbelt Motorists which was held at Mukuba Mall in Kitwe. Like the case has been in the past, Motorists have complained and asked RTSA to improve on service delivery but Saturday was true reflection of challenges the institution is grappling with. RTSA had invited motorists through a press statement that various services which included issuance of road service licence, issuance of drivers’ licence, motor vehicle examination both physical and automated, road safety education, driver testing (oral and practical) for provisional driver’s license, payment of road tax and payment for certificate of fitness. However, the case was different as a few motorists turned up and those needed services that required network were disappointed that RTSA had no better explanation on the poor services being rendered to its clients. “We came so that our issues are resolved because the Kitwe Office has failed us in so many ways and when he heard that officers would be here (KITWE) it was an opportunity to understand why they are failing us, but alas we are being told to visit the same station because the system is down, so we left wondering if this institution is serious†one of the motorists stated “Personally I have been going to the same RTSA Station and every time I am told the system is down, so then what is this ICT they are talking about if they can’t offer us the services? “Look at the people that are here obviously each one of them has complaint or needs to be attended to but with the system down I guess it’s business as usual†he added. They complained that most of them had been asked to go back and come later in the day as the system would have returned to normal. RTSA Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko was at pains to explain why the system has been down. “It is a challenge; yes, but we are trying to address it. We want to migrate to Zamtel and other and we know how much it affects people,” Soko said. The post RTSA In Tech Glitch appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Hardworking Kitwe Mayor Christopher Kang’ombe is facing resistance from fellow councillors despite winning the hearts of many ordinary citizens for his work ethics. The youthful civic leader, who doubles as Patriotic Front Kitwe District chairman, is not having it easy to make decisions as some of his fellow councillors have opted not to support most of his development agenda. Kang’ombe, who has been in the council for over 10 years, has attained experience to run the local authority but his efforts are not being appreciated while others elsewhere including Lusaka residents continue to envy his leadership skills. An investigation has revealed that some councillors have ganged up to frustrate the Local Government Association of Zambia president from delivering on his promise. Kang’ombe has however vowed not to give up but will continue working for the good of the city and country at large. Some councillors who sought anonymity complained that Kang’ombe has been soliciting plots from their respective wards but continues to block his friends when they seek other favours within the system. They accused Kang’ombe of being selfish and not helping his friends’ access land. “The problem we have is that he wants everything to himself which is not fair. We all need to benefit because the Council is not about him but all of us; he is not a bad leader perse. He has tried transforming the City but he shouldn’t do some of these things individually,” one of the councillors said. Another councillor said Kang’ombe was enduring was political battles that he can overcome. “I have nothing against him but yes I know amongst us some don’t like him but I think it’s an issue of jealous. These issues of ambitions, he has complained before that we are not helping him,†another said. Kang’ombe has however declined to be drawn into what he described as “petty squabbles” prevailing among a selected few in the Kitwe council. “I have an obligation to work for the people that elected me into office and that is my priority for now, I will not waste time discussing such issues. The people need services and that is my focus for now,†said Kang’ombe. The post Kang’ombe Faces Resistance In Kitwe appeared first on Zambia Reports.
