Kalulushi residents have taken Nkana Water and Sewage Company task for the erratic supply of water in the district.
One of the residents, Stanely Chipamba a Kalulushi business man said since yesterday there had been no water in the area, adding that being a rainy season he fears there could be an outbreak of water borne disease as people fetch the commodity in unhygienic sources.
Mr Chipampa said the area is facing a life threatening situation especially for school going children and the business community whose shops in town were using communal toilets a situation that would result in having water borne disease due to poor sanitation.
Mr Chipamba however, said though, of late the company had been efficient in their supply of water to the district which was being rationed to the residents from 05.30 hours to 12.00 hours in the afternoon and from 17.00 hours to 22.00 hours, it was better according to the Zambian standard than the current scenario.
And another resident, Mulenga Chileshe said it was really inconveniencing for her and her family at home because without water they could not do any work.
Ms Chileshe said her house is in a mess while toilets at her work place were equal in a bad state.
But efforts to get Nkana Water and Sewerage Manager failed as she was not in her office at press time.
