(ZANIS)-Central Province Permanent Secretary, MILNER MWANAKAMPWE is saddened by the increasing number of people being displaced due to floods in Chibombo district.

Mr. MWANAKAMPWE says over 200 people have been affected and that the floods have damaged farmland and crops in almost 18 out the 22 wards which he says may lead to food insecurity.

Displaced families have been housed in tents at United Church of Zambia in Chikobo ward and also at Luyando School in Chibombo ward.

Meanwhile, Mr. MWANAKAMPWE, who launched the food ration distribution to the flood victims, has appealed to residents who have refused to relocate to higher lands to reconsider their decision and relocate because the water is contaminated.
