A public health officer in Kasama has expressed concern that some community members are allegedly using mosquito nets for designing wedding dresses. Mr. Morgan Sanka a Public heath Officer in Kasama District revealed this during a public meeting at Chief Nkole Mfumu Palace in Kasama District.

He explained that he was very disappointed to note that some community members were using mosquito nets for designing wedding dresses and not for the intended fishing purposes. Mr. Sanka said it was sad that his office had been distributing mosquito nets to the community for Malaria prevention but were instead being abused.

He further called on people to report anyone found selling or using mosquito nets for other things apart from their intended purpose. The health public officer also advised those engaged in the practice that they were doing so at the expense of risking their own health.
