Differently abled people from Lutembwe Transit Home in Chipata are drinking stale water from Lutembwe stream.
This came to light during a handover ceremony of farming inputs to Lutembwe Transit Home by Department of Community Development.
Transit Home chairman, Maxenshu Mbewe, bemoaned inadequate water supply and sanitation and called on government to address the situation.
And Mr. Mbewe expressed gratitude to government for rehabilitating their home, which has been deserted for too long and had become inhabitable.
The centre, which is currently home to over 40 people, acts as a transit home for those displaced, until they are able to be settled elsewhere.
And the Provincial Community Development Officer, Barnabas Musonda expressed concern with the lack of water and sanitation facilities at the centre.
He says that his office will engage the Eastern Water and Sewerage Company to see how they can extend their services to the transit home.
Government released 45 000 Kwacha from May 2012, to June 2013, for works to rehabilitate the homes.
However, 53 000 Kwacha is still needed to finish rehabilitating one house and an office block.
