Serious hunger has hit selected parts of Petauke district.

Serious hunger has hit villagers in some parts of Petauke district.
District Commissioner Elijah Mwale says Chibale, Chikoba and Sandwe are the most affected areas where relief food is urgently needed.
The District Commissioner was speaking when the Deputy Minister in the Office of the Vice President Harry Kalaba paid a courtesy call on him to assess disaster situation in the district.
Meanwhile the Deputy Minister observed that Ukwimi D 139 Road has turned into a death trap because the former Petauke Constituency Member of Parliament Dora Siliya did not pay attention to the road infrastructure.
Mr. Kalaba has wondered why the CDF, Constituency Development Fund is not being used for road infrastructure development in the district.
He says good development could only come, by prioritising infrastructure development such as roads with the government providing policy direction accompanied by resources necessary to uplift living standards of the people.
The minister has advised the DC to make available reports to his office that concerns disaster for immediate attention.
