The National Revolution Party (NRP) has appealed to Government to construct a clinic and a school in Linda Compound in Lusaka.
NRP Secretary General (SG) Kelly Walubita Jr. bemoaned that there is no health post and a basic school in the area.
Speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka yesterday Mr Walubita Jr. said this compels residents to go to Chawama and Mount Makulu to seek medical health care services while only a community school existed in Linda Compound.
He urged government through the Ministries of Health and Education to consider constructing a health post and a basic school in the area to cushion the rising number of maternal deaths among mothers and children as well as reducing illiteracy levels in the area.
He said education would not improve in the area without primary education, a vital component for building one’s foundation.
“As a party, we are appealing to the Government to construct a health post and school in Linda Compound,’’ Mr Walubita said.
And Mr Walubita thanked Government for clinching a U$$53 million loan from the Chinese Government for mobile clinics.
Mr Walubita Jr. further challenged the opposition to work with the government of the day as opposed to merely politicking at the expense of impoverished Zambians.
