Kapata ward councillor, Naphtali Banda says some of the structures that were built too close to Lunkhwakwa stream must be demolished.
He says this is the only way the flooding challenges that people in Old Jim area face will end.
Mr. Banda told Breeze News that building too close to the river has disturbed the water floor in the stream.
He was responding to complaints from residents who accused the council of not doing anything to end the flooding challenges.
Meanwhile, the residents have complained of the poor state of roads such as Kapata- Nabvutika, Mpezeni Park-Chimwemwe.
And Mr. Banda acknowledged that the roads need to be worked on.
He says that road works are expected to commence after the rain season is over adding that the project will also look at roads in Old Jim and Mthilansembe, as well as the bridge in New Jim area.
