He explained that  the items were being distributed in all the five  wards affected by the floods in Dundumwezi and Kalomo central areas.

He said so far some tents were already distributed to  accommodate  some families whose houses collapsed.

“Items received from the vice president’s office are going to be distributed in all the affected wards in the district to assist flood victims,” Mr Sikaduli said.

He said Water had begun to recede in some areas that got logged as a result of floods.

He has also urged the  Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit local committee to solicit services of the Zambia Air Force to airlift the consignment to the affected victims due to the bad road network.

Mr Sikaduli observed that there was going to be a challenge in delivering some relief to some areas due to the bad status of the roads.

The istrict has continued to receive heavy downpours with most crossing points in remote areas being cut off from central business.
