13 human remains have been exhumed at Chingwere Cemetery following heavy rains that have experienced in Lusaka in the last two days.
LCC Public Relations Manager George Sichimba tells Komboni Radio News that the remains were discovered today by LCC workers during their routine duties at the cemetery.
Mr Sichimba explains that the remains have not been re-buried because the part of the cemetery where the incident occurred is still water logged.
On 11th February 2019 a similar occurrence happened at the same cemetery though at a different spot.
Council engaged a contractor, Treo Zambia Limited to
construct the main permanent drainage to mitigate future occurrences at a cost of K600, 000.
And Mr Sichimba disclosed that so far 80 percent of works have been completed adding that the council is impressed with the progress of works.
He further disclosed that construction of more drainages will follow in due course so that the flow of storm water could be controlled.
