Copperbelt Minister Bowman Lusambo has summoned the Mayors of Kitwe and Ndola with their management teams to discuss issues of poor service delivery noted by President Edgar Lungu during his three-day visit to the province.
Mr. Lusambo has also summoned managements of the three water utilities on the Copperbelt.
These are Nkana Water and Sewerage Company, Kafubu water and Sewerage Company and Mulonga water and Sewerage Company.
Mr. Lusambo says it is unacceptable that Copperbelt residents should continue getting poor services from those entrusted to deliver quality services to them.
He told ZNBC news in Kitwe that Copperbelt residents should get value for their money instead of the poor services they are subjected to.
Mr. Lusambo said he wants the two local authorities and the water utilities to explain why they are failing to provide services to the people.
During his visit to the Copperbelt, President Lungu who checked on sanitary conditions in some markets and the water reticulation system in some residential areas, was not pleased with what he found.
