Nakonde health center water restored  


Nakonde, June 14, 2013, ZANIS…   The Erractic water supply which hit

Nakonde First Level Referral Health Centre in Muchinga Province last

week has been normalized.


Nakonde district commissioner James Singoyi confirmed the development

to Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) Nakonde today.


He said that the institution has started receiving water and that the

water utility company will soon connect the institution to the main

pipe line which will be running on a 24 hour basis.


And a (ZANIS) reporter who went to check on the situation at the

health centre found people drawing water from the taps.


Meanwhile, Nakonde district medical doctor Chola Kaunda told ZANIS  that

water supply was restored by Chambesh water and Sewerage company on

Monday this week.


Dr. Kaunda explained that the two pumps which broke down and caused the

water problem at the institution have also been repaired .


Last week the institution experienced a critical shortage of water

forcing people in the area to carry buckets of water to the mortuary

to wash bodies of their loved ones for burial.
