Namwala Member of Parliament Major Robbie Chizyuka has implored people in Namwala District to fully support government in the implementation of developmental projects in the area.
During a meeting with all heads of government departments, here, yesterday, Major Chizyuka noted that the district has benefited from Government in many areas including the construction of roads, School infrastructure, health centres and drilling of boreholes.
He further said that the district has also benefited in livestock disease control programmes and small-scale Livestock development projects.
He said that is was therefore the duty of public service workers to help government realize its goals to develop the country through hard work and dedication to duty.
Meanwhile, Major Chizyuka has recommended that the construction of the proposed District Hospital in Namwala should be in Kabulamwanda ward to cater for the large population in Chiefs, Muchila and Nalubamba.
Major Chizyuka observed that people in the two chiefdoms had problems in accessing medical attention and many were forced to travel long
distances to Namwala Hospital.
He further said that there was need to construct more permanent dip tanks as opposed to the purchase of mobile spray races.
Reacting to District Veterinary Officer Dr Enerst Ndalama’s reports about the Ministry of livestock and Fisheries intention to buy two mobile spray races for the District, Major Chizyuka said while buying the equipment might be cheap, the operation cost in terms of logistics would prove to be costly.
He said permanent dip tanks were the solution to containing and controlling animal disease in the district.
