Two local courts closed in Lundazi district due to poor sanitation.

Mwase Lundazi and Kapichila local Courts in Lundazi district have been closed due to poor sanitation condition of the toilet facilities.
Lundazi District Community Medical Officer, Dr. Allan Chisenga confirmed the closure of the two local courts.
He says the closure is basically due to lack of toilets at both Mwase Lundazi and Kapichila local courts.
Dr. Chisenga said Kapichila local court has long standing issues stating that there were more problems at Kapichila local court as the building is not acceptable and the whole court building needs to be rehabilitated.
He says that his office wrote a letter to Lundazi Local court offices on what to do and appealed to the public to put in place all the basic needs like toilets to avoid outbreak of diseases this coming rain season.
And Lundazi District Local Courts Officer Wisdom Phiri said that his office reported the matter to the provincial local courts office in Chipata and they are waiting for a response.
Mr. Phiri however, said that they have started building the toilets while waiting for the provincial authorities to respond to the costs involved.
