UPND Councillor hails Mwanawasa administration for new health centre

Headlines UPND Councillor hails Mwanawasa administration for new health centre

An opposition Councillor in Mazabuka has commended the Mwanawasa administration for funding the construction of a new rural health centre in his ward.

United Party for National Development (UPND), Musaya ward Councillor, Timothy Chipolyonga told ZANIS in Mazabuka today that the new deal Government deserved praise for responding to the villagers’cries whom he said had never seen development since independence.

He said delivery of health care in the Simwambwa hilly area had in the past been a
nightmare because health workers could not visit the area due to its remoteness and
poor roads.

Mr Chipolyonga observed that President Mwanawasa had truly shown the people of
Musaya ward that he was a servant of the people as evidenced by the quick response
to the problems facing villagers.

He said the Government through the Ministry of Health has since engaged a contractor
and allocated K 700 million for the project.

Mr Chipolyonga said the construction of the health centre would reduce disease
outbreaks such as Cholera which last year claimed more lives adding that this would
also help expectant mothers and under five children to receive quality health care.
