Some residents in Chipata express concern over poor hygiene standards in Chipata town.

Some residents in Chipata’s Kapata Township have called upon the local authority to properly implement the ‘’Keep Chipata Clean” campaign.
Speaking to Breeze News, Joshua Lungu and Madalitso Banda have expressed concern about the poor hygiene standards in Chipata town.
They have observed that since the campaign slowed, people had reverted to their old habits of disposing off rubbish carelessly.
The duo called upon the council to be more vigilant and forceful in ensuring that people keep their surroundings clean.
They added that the uncovered manholes at Kapata market have become dumping sites for all kinds of rubbish, including dead dogs.
And Chipata Municipal Public Relations Officer, Taonga Kaonga, says that the campaign was temporarily put on hold, until the Member of Parliament for Chipata Central, Ruben Mtolo Phiri, was officially sworn in.
She says that the campaign, which was launched in May this year, was suspended weeks before the Chipata Central Constituency by – election to avoid politicising the exercise.
Ms. Kaonga, however, encouraged residents to take ownership of the ‘’Keep Chipata Clean” campaign by ensuring that their surroundings are kept clean.
