Reformed Church in Zambia RCZ has commended government for its support towards addressing the plight of the people.
RCZ Moderator Edwin Zulu says the church is happy to note that government has taken an active role in providing safe and clean water to the Zambian communities.
Dr. Zulu was speaking during the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding in Katete between the Reformed Church in Zambia and Eastern Water and Sewerage for the construction of a dam.
He says the Church cannot sit and ignore the challenges society is faced with such as inadequate water supply which has affected Katete district for a long time.
And receiving the land transfer agreement on behalf of government, Katete District Commissioner Peter Kaisa praised the church for its contribution.
The District Commissioner said Katete district has for a long time not had reliable water sources as the current water supply can only go for seven hours per day.
Meanwhile, Eastern Water and Sewerage Company Managing Director Wamuwi Changani says it is the first time in the history of his company that the legal processes for a land transfer has been successfully followed.
Mr. Changani thanked the Reformed Church in Zambia for the gesture in helping Katete residents find a solution to the water problems.
