Government has refuted claims by the Zambia Direct Democracy Movement (ZDDM) that it has neglected hospices in the country.

Chief Government spokesperson, Kennedy Sakeni, said contrary to the ZDDM assertions, government has set aside KR 1 million to assist hospices country wide in the provision of quality health care to the people.

In a statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka today, Mr Sakeni said the move has been taken because government, through the Ministry of Health, values the important contribution hospices are making in the provision of health care services in the country.

Mr Sakeni stated that arrangements have been made to disburse the money through the Churches Health Association of Zambia (CHAZ) to the hospices.

He noted that it is, therefore, misleading for Zambia Direct Democracy Movement (ZDDM) vice president Charles Kafumbo to accuse government of neglecting hospices.

Mr Sakeni said government reaffirms its commitment to working with all stake holders in taking quality health care as close to the people as possible.



  1. Mr. Sekani, what about hospices for the aged, what have you planned for them, because those are not under the ministry of health but under the department of social welfare, you have not mentioned any plan for them.

  2. I had respect for Sakeni for the work he did for Zambia during his work in the intelligence, but all the hard work he did has been washed off by his treachery involvement with Satanist Sata.

    Why Sakeni can not advise Sata to stop his violent autocratic rule in Zambia, is everyone question?

    It is a shame to have SHUSHUSHUs in such places as Information Ministry and then they are not giving the RIGHT advise to Sata.

    Why leave to evil greedy Kabimba to play the one man show?

    Zambians will do the Romanian way of the 25 th December 1989 no matter the repression from Sata not even the Kaunda way of the 1980s when KK used to bark on the radio and everyone listened to his nonsense!
