Villagers in Chief Msoro’s area in Mambwe district have complained of the poor state of some major roads in the area.
Naphtali Banda and Maurice Tembo explained that the most roads in the area are in a poor state and need urgent rehabilitation.
They mentioned Msoro-Katete, Chipata-Msoro and Msoro-Sandwe road, as of the roads that link Mambwe to other districts, which are in a poor state and need to be graded.
