Chief Mphamba of the Tumbuka speaking people of Lundazi district says the implementation of the Mphamba water supply extension project will reduce possible outbreaks of waterborne diseases.
Speaking to Breeze FM News, the traditional leader notes that for a long time now people in his chiefdom were sharing water sources with domestic animals, as they entirely depended on water from shallow wells.
The traditional leader however, called on the water utility company to extend the water supply project to higher laying villages in the chiefdom.
He explained that currently the only people that are able to benefit from the project are those situated in low laying places.
Meanwhile Eastern Water and Sanitation Company Managing Director Aaron Mulinda says the project is targeting about three hundred customers.
He says that so far, the first phase of the project, which involves the installation of 2.2 kilometer water pipes and other associated fittings has been completed.
Mr. Mulinda says the company is now connecting new customers in the area and that so far 8 households have been connected

Breeze FM founder and Managing Director Mike Daka has challenged journalists to develop a culture of reading books.

Breeze FM founder and Managing Director Mike Daka has challenged journalists to develop a culture of reading books.
Speaking when he featured on Radio Phoenix’s Book Club radio programme this morning, Mr. Daka stated that the quality of writing will remain poor if journalists do not develop an interest in reading books.
Mr. Daka also advised journalists to develop a culture of serving and investing, which most media people do not do, so that they can prepare properly for their retirement.
And Mr. Daka observed that print media including those in other parts of the world have started struggling due to competition from social media.
He however, stated that radio still has a long time to survive the competition from social media as long as they understand who they are broadcasting to, who they are writing for and the needs of their audience.
Mr. Daka further stated that radio in Africa has a great opportunity to survive because most ordinary people cannot manage the costs associated with being online meaningfully.
He also observed that despite social media being a threat, it lacks meaningful content that can assist people in their lives.
And Mr. Daka took the opportunity to advise people to buy his book titled “A journalist in pursuit of three freedoms”.
He explained that those that would read the book would find it interesting and learn from it, as the book looks at various issues in his life, which have made him successful as a journalist, trainer, administrator, a businessman and a farmer.

Government has released funds to China State Engineering and Construction Company to continue with the construction of Chadiza-Chipata-Chanida-Katete roads.
Eastern Province Permanent Secretary Chanda Kasolo confirmed this yesterday when he met government heads of departments in Chadiza.
He says that government has paid the Contractor 34 million Kwacha to continue with the road works.
Mr. Kasolo says the contractor was demanding for 50 million Kwacha but upon negotiations the contractor agreed to continue with the road works after being paid 34 million Kwacha.
He says the work is expected to resume soon.
Meanwhile Chadiza District Forestry Officer Charles Mchotsa complained that the two companies, China State and Avex Contractors are using the forest reserves without proper documents to allow them use the forest.
Mr Mchotsa explained that the two construction companies have set up quarries in the forest and are now selling crashed stones to local residents who are building houses and other structures.
He says that many trees have been cut in areas where they take gravel without paying for it.
Mr. Mchotsa says when he contacted the two contractors, he was told that they have the authority from the president to use the land.
And Eastern Province Permanent Secretary Chanda Kasolo says that the matter will be looked in to establish if the contractors have proper documents from ZEMA, the Zambia Environmental Management Agency.

Zambia Bureau of Standards threatens to close companies operating without permits.

Local manufactures operating without a permit to supply products risk having their companies closed.
Zambia Bureau of Standards, ZABS Head of Marketing and Public Relations, Hazel Zulu told Breeze News in a press statement that this is in an effort to ensure that only safe and reliable products are made reliable to the consumers.
Mrs. Zulu says according to section 12 of the standard act number 416 of the laws of Zambia, only manufactures with authorisation from the Bureau are allowed to supply products to which compulsory standards apply.
She says supplying products without a permit from the Bureau is a violation of the standard act and the manufacture may have their products confiscated or have their premises closed if they do not comply.
Mrs. Zulu says the exercise of inspecting products and educating manufactures has already started in Lusaka and will spread to other parts of the country including Eastern Province this year because the region has a good number of manufactures.
Mrs. Zulu urged consumers to always look for expiry dates on products adding that this is an indication that the supplier of the products is genuine.
