Kapata market in Chipata has started rehabilitating toilets which cost 7, 500 Kwacha to complete.
Kapata Market Chairperson, Richard Mutale Lunda and Market Master Breviuos Banda confirmed to Breeze News.
Mr. Lunda and Mr. Banda say that the market committee decided to take up the work to avoid any outbreak of diseases during the rainy season.
They say that the money being used for the project is from market fee contributions.
The duo said that the toilet building will be painted while toilets will have new fittings and its sewer system unblocked.
And in a related development, Chipata Municipal Council has been asked to fulfill its promises to rehabilitate toilets at Nabvutika market.
Market Chairperson Levison Mwanza told Breeze News that the local authority made the promise to rehabilitate the toilets 5 years ago but up to date nothing has been done.
Mr Mwanza said the only toilet which was built by Chipata Municipal Council a long time ago, is about to get full.
The chairperson also complained of the council taking long to collect garbage at the market, which is adding filthy at the trading area.
