Written by Millennium Radio on May 16, 2019
Residents of Kitwe’s Miseshi ward in Nkana constituency have bemoaned the lack of development in the area.
The residents have complained that their civic leaders have neglected the area.
The residents have cited poor roads, lack of water and a proper drainage system and continued land allocation illegalities as some of the challenges the ward is grappling with.
They have complained that their area councilor Douglas Moyo and Member of Parliament Alexander Chiteme have not kept their campaign promises of developing the area.
And A check by a Millennium Radio news crew in the company of the councilor found young people in bars as early as 09:30 hours.
The youths complained that there is nothing for them to do adding that the piece of land that was meant to be a basketball play court has been sold by unknown people hence them being found in bars all the time.
Meanwhile traders at what looks like an abandoned market shelter have complained that the market has no running water which makes operations very difficult.
The traders also complained that the traders have decided to leave the market shelter to sale from the their homes.
And residents in the area have raised concern over the poor sanitation in the area.
The residents complained that the toilets are communal but with no running water.
But Miseshi ward area councilor Douglas Moyo says he is aware of the situation in the area .
Mr Moyo however says his powers as councilor are limited but adds that he has taken the concern to higher authorities.
He says the sanitation situation in the area has reached the area MP adding that once funds are available Nkana water and sewerage will be engaged to work on the matter.
But efforts to get a comment from area MP Alexander Chiteme failed by broadcast time.
