Government is set to connect Kanyama Township to piped water.
Ministry of Water Development, Sanitation and Environmental Protection Permanent Secretary Eddy Chomba confirmed the development when he signed a contract with China Civil Engineering to start setting up the water network.
Bishop Chomba says the project which is slated to be completed within the next seven months is meant to provide a permanent solution to the Cholera epidemic.
He says government is waging a war against Cholera which is why many stakeholders have come on board to fight it.
Meanwhile China Civil Engineering General Manager Eric Ding has promised the government and Zambians that he will do quality works on the water network.
Mr. Ding says his company’s partnership with Zambia has resulted in great works completed including the TAZARA railway line constructed about forty year’s ago.
