Residents in Sinda district have accused the council of failing to collect garbage in the district.

Residents of the newly created Sinda district have complained over the piling of uncollected garbage in some of the main markets.
The residents are now worried that diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea may break out if the garbage is not collected soon enough.
Breeze FM correspondent in Petauke, Mercy Maseko reports that a random check at both Sinda New and Old markets have revealed piles of uncollected garbage.
Meanwhile, Sinda Ward councillor, Shadreck Mwanza has called on the district council to take garbage collection seriously.
He also expressed worry of disease outbreaks especially after the onset of the rains.
And Sinda district council acting secretary, Toid Mwale acknowledged that the newly established local authority is facing challenges in waste management.
Mr. Mwale, however, explained that the council has requested the RRU, Rural Roads Unit to assist with a front loader machine to be used to collect the garbage.
