K200, 000 for Rokana Ward Police Post

By ROGERS KALERO

ABOUT K200, 000 is to be spent on the construction of a Police Post near Rokana primary school  following the rise in crime incidences in the area where people are being attacked and robbed,’’ Rokana ward councillor Macmillan Mbao has said.

Mr Mbao said, apart from people being attacked in the area, the nearby bush the Zambia Railways (ZR) was also being used by pupils from Nkana secondary and Rokana primary schools a convenient place for fighting and other illicit activities.

In an interview in Kitwe yesterday, Mr Mbao said the K200, 000 was expected to come from the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) and will ensure that the facility was of good quality to gain and hold the confidence of the people.

He said, he has a number of projects lined up to fulfil his campaign promises which included the construction of a clinic behind the former Rokana Cinema hall where the Public Health building stands.

“As Rokana ward councillor, am asking for support from the residents of my Ward so that I deliver my campaign promises. To start with, am constructing a Police Post near Rokana Primary school and the Zambia Railways due to the rising crime wave

“The Police Post will cost about K200, 000 , while for the clinic, we are yet to do the Bill of Quantity (BOQ). People have been attacked in the bush near the Zambia Railways, hence the construction of a Police Post,’’ Mr Mbao said 

Mr Mbao said the ‘new dawn’ government of President Hakainde Hichilema will ensure that it delivered development from ward level up to the nation level because it had a well thought out plan of national development and citizens empowerment 

He said he has confidence in the leadership of Kitwe District Commissioner Lawrence Mwanza who was the UPND Copperbelt Information and Publicity Secretary (IPS) and Provincial Minister Elisha Matambo who was also UPND Copperbelt Provincial Chairman 

He said, under the guidance of the two leaders and other district leaders , councillors were able to deliver development in their respective wards so that they could gain and hold the confidence of the people

“As children of President Hichilema, under the guidance of provincial and district leaders, we are determined to fulfil our campaign promises to gain and hold the confidence of the people and prove critics wrong,’’ he said

Mr Mbao said, with the collective effort of other councillors and Mayor Mpasa Mwaya, they will work together to lobby and support developmental projects in various wards, constituencies and district as a whole
