Kabwe Municipal Council has assured residents that construction of an intercity terminal will be completed soon.
Speaking in a phone interview on Millennium radio; “I heard programme”, Kabwe Municipal Council Public Relations Officer Chilufya Mwamba said the local authority was aware that the construction was long overdue.
She however said the contractor was working hard to ensure that the project was completed by March 2016.
Ms Mwamba said the complaints of lack of a bus terminal would be a thing of the past when the station is completed.
She also said the problems of garbage in Kabwe was also being resolved as the council was distributing sacks which were colour coded for specific trash such as paper, bottle and plastic bags. “The history of the garbage has been a challenge but the council is working hard to ensure that garbage is collected thereby urging the people of Kabwe to ensure that they clean there surroundings’ and throw garbage in designated places,” Mr Mwamba said.
She expressed concern over traders and vendors that were cooking on the streets and leaving the fires burning.
Ms Mwamba said this was a danger to shop owners, passers-by and the buildings in the city town. “Those cooking must be reminded that where they are cooking are not their homes and that if the fires spread to flammable materials, it could cause fire hazards in the town centre,” she warned. She appealed to Kabwe residents to help the council by looking after the town and keeping the city clean.
