Acting President Guy Scott yesterday unveiled the foundation stone for the construction of a district hospital in Ikelenge district in North-western province.

Dr Scott said the government is determined to continue executing developmental programmes started in 2011 when the party assumed power.

Dr Scott who is in North-western province inspecting developmental projects and holding some public meetings, said this when he officiated at the ground breaking ceremony for the district hospital.

Speaking at the same occasion, Health Deputy Minister, Chitalu Chilufya said government has embarked on a programme to provide equitable quality health services to the people country wide.

Dr Chilufya said government has upgraded Luwi Mission Hospital to first level status and has completed construction of Chavuma District Hospital while constructing a number of health posts countrywide.

And Local Government and Housing Minister, Emmanuel Chenda called on the people to vote for PF candidate, Edgar Lungu during the forthcoming presidential by-elections in order to guarantee continuity of developmental programmes.

Mr Chenda said government has already sourced funds for the construction of the infrastructure and housing units in Ikelenge district.

Earlier, traditional leaders in the district appealed to government to rehabilitate the Mwinilunga-Chavuma road which they described as being in a bad state.

They said the people of Ikelenge produce a lot of pineapples but they find
challenges to transport the product because of the poor state of the road.

  1. This is what is called crisis governance. The govt officials are only seen and heard from during bye-elections and then disappear once elections are over. Look at the entourage of Scot all from the same region. It’s too late the people of NWP have been cheated too long and they have made up their minds and no gimmicks can change that. In fact what Scot is doing is against the electoral code of conduct. He is more or less dishing out money indirectly during campaigns in the pretex of inspecting projects. Why start projects in the middle of election campaigns? Where are the universities promised during the last bye-election
    for Mumfumbwe and Kabompo? RB tried such tricks but still lost.

  2. In October 2012 in the heat of the bye-election Scot promised the people of Mumfumbwe that 12 health facilities would be built in the area. Instead no much has happened if anything the people of Mumfumbwe have had no mp. These so called build this, build that what will the benefit to the people to have a building without any staff or medicines? The same govt have failed to fund Kaleni mission hospital which is in Ikeleng’i, there is not enough staff due to employment freeze, there are no medicines and there is only 1 doctor and govt keeps saying that there is nothing they can do because there is no money. The hospital depends on volunteer doctors from UK and Canada who go for a few weeks and return to their base. Where will they now find money for the hospital they intend to build?

  3. One doubts that people in Mwinilunga can fall for such a lie and vote for PF. Even a child can see through the PF lies when it comes to NWP.
    The last two paragraphs of the main story above shows how PF has neglected NWP. People of NWP will only vote for PF at their own peril. PF should be a No, No, No and No. It is only Mwanawasa who had a heart for his cousins in NWP. HH is likely to have the same attitude towards NWP as Mwanawasa. Edgar Lungu and the rest are not NWP-friendly like KK, FTJ, RB and MCS.

  4. @Muzimo and Silent Wirness. If you guys heard the speech by the Late President Sata in parliament in October during the presentation of the budget you should realise that this hospital was one of the infrastructure that Sata said would be built.In his speech he mentioned this hospital and connecting Mwinilunga to the national grid because Mwinilunga runs on diesel.To be honest this is not coming because of this election but because it was planned for even before Sata died.Viva PF,VIVA EL
