KALULUSHI Municipal Council has procured a brand new grader at the total cost of K2.5 million using locally generated funds.

Transinovations Motors Zambia Limited Operations Manager, Ephraim Shinyanga, handed over the grader to the local authority on Wednesday.

Kalulushi Mayor, Rashidah Mulenga, said the grader would be used to improve the road network in the district.

“For a very long time the people of Kalulushi have complained of poor maintenance of roads and now that we have acquired this grader we will have less complaints with regards to the maintenance of roads,” stressed the Mayor.

The Mayor added that in the past the council was either hiring or lobbying for graders, meaning that the graders would only be at the council for a restricted time.

This, she said, limited the amount of work done in the 22 wards of the district.

Ms Mulenga thanked the community for payments of their rates which enabled the council to procure the grader using locally generated funds.
