Authorities have acknowledged that most sanitation infrastructure in Lusaka does not meet the required standards hence posing a health hazard to the people.

 

According to statistics, Lusaka has a population of up to 2.5 million people which likely goes up during daily activities as people from other areas conduct their businesses within Lusaka.
