Opening of Lusaka General Hospital in Pictures

Time Posted: August 12, 2011 7:58 am

This week President Rupiah Banda officially commissioned the multi-billion Kwacha Lusaka General hospital with a pledge to continue improving health care delivery in all parts of the country.

The President announced the government’s allocation of K52 billion to the Ministry of Health in this year’s budget for the recruitment of health workers.

President Banda said that the government had opened a new Medical School at the Copperbelt University to train more medical doctors and dental surgeons.

The President further said that the introduction of new training programmes such as direct entry for mid wives and the parallel enrolment scheme for clinical officers have led to a significant improvement in the number of health workers in the country.

Below are some of the pictures of the opening ceremony

      ENGINEER,
      Staff meeting a president in a presidential tour do not equal to staff tendinding to ur broken leg in a motor vehicle accident. Nurses do no equal doctors, just as mechanics do not equal mechanical engineers. just what has RB done to warrant ur so called success? as an engineer, which u claim to be, you will kno these projects were planned long before RB was resurrected from doldrums by Mwanawasa. You will also be smart enough to see that the so called hospital is no where near functioning, the ceremony is a mare campaing gymic by ur esteemed country man for a vote from the uneduacted, ill informed/ manipulable electorate…………..hope u r not one such.

    #2 I think number 1 explains why pf supporters deny that there is development taking place in Zambia. They simply cant see what is right in front of them which also goes to explain why they cant see the unsuitability of Satan for the presidency.

    #3 Are you not the same b.uffoon who yesterday predicted a landslide victory for the mad thug Satanzania over several posts yesterday? Seems like you are just as inconsistent as the adulterer you support.

If I made a prediction of one particular candidate to win the election, why cant you also make a counter argument based on your own independent analysis. I am sure you are not trying to deny me the right of expressing my opinion free on a democratic space like this forum. Only empty heads resort to vulgar language and emotional language. If you push me to use the same language you seem to be throwing on me, I will be worse and you will end be getting hurt. Let’s be more sober as will debate our national politics.

First we are told that RB is betraying Levy’s legacy, now we are being told that he is finishing off Levy’s projects? MMD is not a dictatorship unlike your stupid party which up to now has not come up with a list of parliamentary candidates and yet you buffo.ons such as #8 still believes in the 90 days miracle.

    #10 Why are you so sensitive? I am just highlighting the fact that you are as inconsistent as the buff.oon you support, that is all. I know it really hurts you when you see development in Zambia because it means that the chances of the old snake getting to plot 1 lessen. Well, the hospital is finished and is there on Great East Road in all of it’s white shining glory for all to see whilst Sata cant even come up with a list of parliamentary candidates at this late hour. Maybe, what the late Chiluba said about Satan being functionally illiterate like most of his supporters is true after all.

    I know this was Levi’s project but also if MMD were any good for the past 20 years they would have had one built in every province instead of stealing funds for mansions and huge farms.

    It’s a slap in the face to both the dinosaurs who will never change Zambia.

    #32 I agree completely with your sentiment. Nothing ever pleases these guys. Instead of celebrating the country moving up from least developed status to middle income, they complain. Bumper harvest they dont want to know. Schools, roads and hospitals being built ati its Mwanawasa or you are just politicking. Low inflation, they will say (in all seriousness) that you cant eat inflation like they dont buy food with money. They say there is no democracy within MMD and yet Masebo who claims to be hated by RB was voted in Women’s Chair for the party but see nothing wrong in having the first and only  pf convention in 10 years where no single ballot was cast and where Satana who has lost 3 elections was unopposed!

There are no laboratories, no lecture rooms and no offices for staff. They are busy trying to displace boimedical students at Ndola cetral hospital so as to grab the space. This is when they are trying to design and build the new school in Ndola. The whole thing is just circus.

    Someone said that MMD has built 1 hospital in 20 years while UNIP built many, but this silly person doesn’t realise that UNIP started with PLUS $3 billion in 1964 (including a UK grant of £3 million) and ended with MINUS $7 billion in 1990. MMD started with MINUS $7 billion in 1991 and now has PLUS $2.5 billion. The FIRST national development plan was drawn up in 1962 by the Kaunda led UNIP/ANC coalition government. In 1968 the SECOND plan was to nationalise and from then on, it was down hill all the way.

    A university is not a building. For several years, the Ridgeway campus laboratories were gutted in the 1980s, students still studied Physiology and Biochemistry without labs and Zambia still produced the finest world class doctors who are scattered all over the world now, doing very well in their fields. Medicine laboratory is the patient. To study medicine without the patient is like to sail the sease without a compass.

    #46 If you read widely instead of drinking katata all day you would know that the price of mealie meal has fallen in Zambia. Zambia is one of the few African countries where the food price is coming down. If you think that all it takes to have a bumper harvest is heavy rains then no wonder you are gullible or is it st.upid enough to believe that an adulterous, tribalist, buff.oon like Satana can bring paradise to your lazy ar.se in 90 days.

    Call it what you want, election ploy,photo opportunity or real development. It does not matter critics will always be there in a country of free speech. This is a working government exactly what people want to see. RB is a sober, thoughtful president who does not overreact even in situations of worst provocation as we have seen in recent past. The Hopistal will be there for all long after RB and his govt have departed the scene. September elections is a no contest for electorates with rational minds. One is a true leader, the other is cadre and hardcore yob. Who do you honestly vote for? Come on Zambia, its a no brainer!

    The only chronic illness Zambia suffers from is the lack of maintenance. You can have all the wonderful buildings, but if you cannot maintain them, its almost amounts to nothing. If government resources cannot sustain the cost of maintenance, as we have seen in the past, Lets Explore Public Private Partnerships (PPP) or contracting out. This is how most countries in the east and west have managed their frastructure dating from as early as 17th century. Entering in one of them in London or Berlin today, you would think it was erected yesterday. Certainly, Zambia needs that, It does not cost a fortunate to put the right policies in place but the lack of them.

    At 48 the saint, I agree with you but before medical students can begin to use the patient as a lab they have to do biology and chemistry labs and these facilities are not just there. CBU at the moment is over congested. Go there are see for your self. Some students stand in lectures because there is no more space. Is this what you are supporting? Its sad that we have people like you who think that things should be done the way they were done in federal governments.

    At 52, I totally agree with you that PPP is an option worth considering but it wont work in Zambia because of obvious reasons that you and I know: Lack of political will on the side of government to support investors, lack of committment and lack of transparency. These are factors that make PPPs to succeed. current PPPs projects in zambia have been a failure like RSZ. those that seem to be operating well like kasumbalesa border and kamwala markets are facing serious revenue and concession risks

    This hospital was soley funded and builty by the chinese government. They are building 19 more such hospitals across Africa not just in Zambia. Just like FIFA Football houses all over Africa. This MMD government shudnt take credit for it!..ati ‘your money at work’…my foot! ..bufi..its chinese taxpayers money….

    I do not think the lack of will to involve private enterprise in managing public infrastrusture is as much of a problem as understanding its detailed concept.I do not entirely blame politicians for that. PPP and Private Finance Initiative (PFI) are fresh ideas in New Public Management (NPM) such that in even Great Briatain implementation only began towards the end of the Thatcher years but fully exploited during the Blair years.Where the concept has been applied in mid and low income countries,it has proved popular and there is no looking back. South Africa instance,utilised the idea to harness resources and expertise for the 2010 FIFA world Cup and beyond.To have such success in Zambia, professional civil service needs to be left alone to do its job, free from govt and its politics.

    No. 57, the idea is not to conceed defeat. Any new idea will be subject to scruitiny and sometimes skeptical reception. This pattern of behaviour is everywhere around world. Its about persistence of those who sell the idea that success finally hinges on. If Bangladesh with unimaginable corruption in public official echelons can succeed at this, Zambia should excel. But lets not forget that overratching interference and paranoia of some political leaders can never help build such good ideas.That’s why technocrats in the Civil Service must be isolated in every sense of the word from government. They are there to provide continuity even when an elected parliament and ultimately cabinet ceases to exist as is the case at present.

    No. 62,China is not benevolent state,therefore cannot just build a hospital in Zambia for nothing. These are coorperating partners on the same page implementing tangible agreements.Give credit where it is due. Not so long ago, Michael Sata made Mwanawasa a subject of ridicule and literal punch bag,calling him names-Chinese Cabbage and the like.Given the despicable behaviour, would the Chinese have come to Zambia if Sata was president?Direct foreign investments from China would still be 90 day pipe dream.The thought of Sata still lurking the political scene for the highest office defies sanity.I understand he is founder of a political party,fair enough. The man simply possesses none of it.Lacks substance, brains, health,personality, diplomacy, education the list goes on.Plot 1,God forbid!

    As much as we appreciate any development to our mother country Zambia, I think the President should concentrate on the entire country’s damaged economy more especially the unproductive Copperbelt. Throwing up a party like that, simply shows that the President has got nothing More important to do. With due respect Mr President, leave and deligate those resposibilities to Permanent secretaries and MP’s.

    The Hopital look nice but why put something nice on crap? we need to pay attension to detail – Landscaping should include the area accessing the hospital and the roads that lead to it. What’s with the huge ditch leading towards the hospital? you can imagine what this will be like during the rain season. Please GRZ, please do your bit, we can not leave everything to the Chinese to do for us.

    Lessons to learn from bloggers like 23 DRC? Nothing!!!Absolutely nothing, name speaks for itself. Credit to one who finished the project. Its kinda like President Clinton’s economic success being credited to George Washington. Chinese donation or whatever, credit goes to the govt of the day. The successor has maintained continuity. Bloggers just trashing the project by its design need to realize that the poor Zambians with no computer access/not living in some foreign country with better infrastructure could care less – its at least a step up from mobile clinics. Anything RB does is negative, bet, if this structure was Sata’s doing, then, same hospital would be perceived a Sata ‘s prowess. Health costs need to be shared with GRZ  for better staffed & paid staff – Free has its downside.
