The Chipangali Town Council has drilled 12 Boreholes in the District to enhance access to safe and clean drinking water to the people of Chipangali District
The first phase of drilling boreholes in the District is in line with Government policy of reaching universal coverage of access to safe and clean drinking.
Chipangali Town Council Secretary Maxson Nkhoma said the local authority is grateful to central government through the ministry of local Government and rural development for timely disbursement of local Government equalization funds which has enabled the council to continue with its robust programme of drilling boreholes.
“I wish to assure the people of Chipangali District that the local authority will continue with its robust programme of drilling boreholes in the District.
I wish to appeal to those villages,Health Facilities , Schools’ and trading centres without access to safe and clean drinking water to reach out to the Council through the Ward Development Committees and areas councillors in their respective wards so that they are enlisted on the programme for the boreholes,” he said.
Mr Nhhoma has appealed to those villages not yet benefited that the council will reach out to them as the borehole drilling program is a continuous and ongoing program of Chipangali council.
