Lukanga Water and Sewerage Company Limited of Kabwe has faced a water supply disruption by Zesco, the company says water supply will only be restored to normal when power resumes.
“Lukanga Water and Sewerage Company would like to apologise to the customers and general public for the disruption of water supply to Kabwe and the surrounding areas. This is due to the disruption of electricity to our water supply sites..” reads part of the statement being broadcast repeatedly on local KNC radio.
The supply has been cut from as early as 08:30 hrs and by 12:00hrs Kabwe has no piped water while most parts of the town have no power. A company source who sought anonymity told the Watchdog by phone that the cut in power was just abrupt and they have not been told when it will be restored.
“This could be a disaster mudala as at now let us wait and see,” he concludes.
