RESIDENTS of Kadango village in Chirundu central ward have bemoaned the narrow and poor state of the road leading to a
local Chibende clinic.

Speaking on behalf of other residents Mr. Benard Mwanza said the council should consider widening and grading up the road because it was a challenge driving on it.

Mr. Mwanza said some residents were not happy that their yards were being used as alternative roads which put the lives of children in danger.

He said the road in question was very important because it led to the local clinic and other surrounding communities.

Mr. Mwanza has since appealed to the area councilor Mr. Chrispin Malesu and the local authority to consider improving the road.

And Ms Beatrice Tembo of Choonga B village has also bemoaned the loitering of domestic animals like cows and goats that had become a nuisance to the residents.

“We do not know the owners of these cows that are loitering in our yards, drinking water stored in the buckets you know we have serious water challenges here,

“We are being encouraged to plant flowers and at least have kitchen gardens but then this is not becoming a reality because of the stray cows. We are sleeping outside just to scare away these animals,” said Ms Tembo.

Meanwhile, deputy Chief of Sikoongo and headman for Choonga village Peter Choonga said he had not received any formal complaint concerning the stray cows but suspected the animals to be coming from nearby villages like Siachibuba,Simaundu and Sitinkwi.

Mr. Choonga has advised the residents that according to the chiefdom laws they had the right to herd them to the headman’s place and then action would taken against the owners.

However, Mr Choonga has called on all the people owning livestock to properly take care of them all the time.
