The Zambia Meteorological Department has projected floods in some parts of Southern Province.

Mr Bupe stated that parts of Kazungula, Kalomo, Zimba, and Namwala districts are the areas that are likely to be affected by these floods.

And Mr Bupe stated that the southern part of the country will continue receiving high quantities of rain for the next five days.
