The councillor stated that  the water reticulation system has tremendously improved even in schools, a thing he said was wonderful.

He was speaking to the Zambia News and Information Services in Lusaka today.

Mr Chanda stated that currently, there are various construction works on road pavements in sections A and B, drainage construction as well as cleaning of the township was going on in the area.

The civic leader noted that all these developmental programmes are happening just because of the able leadership of President Michael Sata and the PFgovernment.

He further stated that using Constituency Development Funds, he has managed to fence Mtendere Library to 95 per cent level.

Mr Chanda also noted the plans are under way for the extension of electricity to Mtendere East as well as buying of two generator sets for Mtendere clinic.

He lamented that a feasibility study is underway by the Zambia National Service (ZNS) to construct a permanent structure across Kaliliki River.
