Kitwe, 21 August, ZANIS…Government has threatened to take legal action against members of the public in the habit of vandalising government property.
Chimwemwe Member of Parliament Mwenya Musenga has urged members of the public to take ownership and safe guard government property as a lot of money is spent on such projects
Mr Musenge who is also Copperbelt provincial minister said this last night in Chimwemwe when he officially launched the street lights along Mangala and Herbert Stanley road in Buntungwa and lubuto wards respectively.

The solar-powered street lights will soon be extended to Nachibungulu way and other roads in Chimwemwe constituency.
