…as Trade Kings donate drums for water storage/waste disposal drums to New Soweto Market.
Traders and customers alike plying their trade and purchasing goods from the recently refurbished New Soweto Market will no longer have to worry about where to dispose waste and how to access clean water for handwashing at a time the dark cloud of the Cholera pandemic hovers upon Zambia.
This comes in the wake of Trade Kings Limited’s gesture to donate 50 210 litres drums to the facility for purposes of water storage and garbage disposal.
In welcoming the gesture, LUSAKA Province Minister, Sheal Mulyata, who has wedged a relentless war against the fatal waterborne contagion in Lusaka (the disease’s epicenter), thanked the firm for prioritizing the welfare of the people of New Soweto Market.
She also expressed happiness at the market management’s continued maintenance of highest standards of hygiene at one of the country’s major trading facilities.
After the official handover of the drums, Ms Mulyata, in the company of Trade Kings Public Relations Manager, Bridget Kambove and New Soweto Market management staff took a tour of ZAMBIA’S largest closed trading facility, City Market.
Whilst there, the team which was led by City Market Manager, Robinson Kambeu, inspected the facility’s ablution block.
After the inspection of the toilets, the team took time to interact and educate the traders on the importance of adhering to hygienic practices, with the major emphasis on Cholera preventive measures.
While the contagion’s infection figures keep fractuating (rising and falling sporadically), hope lies on the horizon as thousands of the country’s citizens keeps responding positively to the vaccination campaign launched by President Hakainde Hichilema recently.
