Government is contemplating embarking on an ambitious project to improve the water situation in Southern Province by tapping the commodity from other parts of the country where water is available all year round.

Minister of Water Development, Sanitation and Environmental Protection, Raphael Nakacinda, says consultations on the feasibility of harvesting and channeling water to the drought-prone regions are underway.

“We are looking at conceptualizing this initiative and see how it can be done and improve the water situation in some parts of the province,” Mr. Nakacinda says.

Mr. Nakacinda said this today in Southern Province when he inspected water infrastructure projects in Livingstone, Zimba, and Choma.

The Minister says water can be gotten from other parts of the country like Luapula and Western provinces where water is abundant.

He says it is imperative that this initiative is actualized because it is a sure way of providing water to the area.

Mr. Nakacinda says this is achievable because other desert countries in North Africa have managed and agriculture is flourishing.

He says Government will not sit idle and allow water to go to waste when other parts of the country are in dire need of the commodity.

The Minister is also impressed to see a solar-powered water plant that services most parts of Choma district.
