Mr Mwila says the move has affected villages in the area such as Chibwe and Zambezi after an unknown people removed pumps and rings at the respective boreholes in the area.
He says this is a draw back to the government as thousands of kwacha were spent to sink the bore holes in a bid to improve water supply in the area.
ZANIS reports that the area D.C said this in a statement in Kawambwa District today.
The scenario has forced villagers to revert to drawing unsafe water from streams and shallow wells.
Mr Mwila is appealing to the community members in the area to be vigilant and help protect the borehole pumps.
