Water Development Minister Raphael Nakachinda has appealed to the Japanese government to help rehabilitate Zambia’s water infrastructure to reduce non-revenue water losses averaging 50 percent.

Mr. Nakachinda says production of water is expensive because of high energy costs but losses are still recorded, owing to poor infrastructure.

Mr. Nakachinda has further revealed that the water sector has recorded revenue losses owing to the impact of the Covid-19.


Speaking in Lusaka today during a meeting with Japanese Ambassador to Zambia Mizuuchi Ryuta, Mr. Nakachinda commended the continued bilateral ties between Zambia and Japan.

He said Zambia under President Edgar Lungu places high premium on the universal access to clean water owing to its significant role that it has in preventing diseases.

And Mr. Ryuta expressed happiness with the impact the implemented projects have on Zambians.

He said water is the basis of maintaining human life.

The Japanese envoy said his government is ready to dialogue with Zambia on further support especially as it works toward developing the Eighth National Development Plan.
