The Lusaka City Council – LCC- is making frantic efforts to provide more accessible mortuary services to the residents of Matero Constituency by constructing a mortuary facility at Matero Level One Hospital.

In a statement this morning, LCC Public relations officer Nyambe Bulumba said the contract sum of the project is Four Hundred Seventeen thousand, Nine hundred ninety-five Kwacha, Seventy-five ngwee (K417, 995.75) and is being funded by the Constituency Development Fund – CDF 2022 allocation for Matero Constituency with a view to reduce the distance residents travel to access such services.

He said the construction of this facility will ease the burden on the residents of Matero as it will improve the situation and make it easier for everyone to access the necessary services.

Mr. Bulumba noted that the mortuary facility whose completion rate stands at 55% was started on 14th July 2023 and is likely to be completed on 18th December 2023.

He said the Local Authority is committed to ensuring that the contractor completes the works according to the agreed schedule so that residents can quickly have access to the services.

Mr. Bulumba has since urged all residents of Matero to take ownership of the facility and protect it from vandals to ensure the facility remains intact for the benefit of both current and future generations.

And Mr. Bulumba stated that Mofan Supplies Limited was engaged by the Local Authority to carry out the construction works and has committed to complete the project as per the contract schedule.
