The Lusaka City Council, through its Public Health Department, is currently disinfecting all markets and Bus stations in the Central Business District to prevent the second outbreak of cholera and other diseases in Lusaka.

In a statement today, LCC Public relations officer Nyambe Bulumba revealed that the council has so far disinfected all hot spots at Kamwala’s Luburma market, Kulimatower Bus Station, and Inter-city bus terminals.

He further stated that the council’s Public Health Officers also disinfected hot spots such as market public toilets, bins, and offices.

Mr. Bulumba has since explained that the chemical used to disinfect these sites not only prevents cholera but also other diseases, as it is a multi-purpose disinfectant.

Meanwhile, Mr. Bulumba noted that the Local Authority has further distributed over 120 litres of chlorine to Kamwala Remand Prison to promote the habit of drinking clean water.

He said the council will continue with its surveillance activities to ensure people are adhering to public health guidelines to avoid all kinds of diseases, including cholera.

The council public relations officer stated that the exercise is part of the campaigns to educate and inform people about cholera prevention methods.

“Officers will keep disinfecting all the potential cholera spots, even in the compounds, until none are left.” Mr. Bulumba said.

And Mr. Bulumba has urged Lusaka residents and business owners to get involved in the exercise, as the fight against cholera can only be won by everyone’s involvement.

He said residents are further advised to always ensure they keep their surroundings clean if they are to live a healthy life.

Mr. Bulumba has however commended business owners for cooperating with council officers on the ground to ensure they smoothly carry out their mandate.
