Health Nurses hail President Edgar Lungu

Nurses pix

The Zambia Union of Nurses Organisation (ZUNO) has hailed the election of His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu as Zambia’s sixth president and has pledged to work with his new government in improving the country’s health sector.

In a congratulatory statement released in Lusaka, ZUNO president Thom Yung’ana said that his organisation was excited with Mr Lungu’s election and was looking forward to further discussing ways of how his organisation and the new government could work together.

“As nurses and midwives we are excited and we look forward to working with the new government. We hope that the new government shall work at meeting the allocation of 15 per cent of the annual national budget to the health sector in accordance with the Abuja declaration.

“We are appealing to the new president to reconsider unconditionally reinstating the health workers that were dismissed in 2013 instead of just reappointing them, and we are also appeal to him to reconsider lifting the wage freeze which has been among the issues that have brought demotivation in the health sector,” Mr Yung’ana said.

Mr Yungana said that his organisation was ready to work with the government of the day and to see to it that the government’s plans for the development of the health sector were attained.

He appealed to all Zambians and political parties in the country to maintain the peace and unity that the country is known for globally, and to work together for the development the country.

  1. No offence, Inonge should have retired from active Politics. As an old school, how’s she going to be making great focus on the Zambian future she’s likely not to enjoy. She was just appointed just because she’s not a so called threat to Mr Kachasu.

    • I agree, she has no right to be appointed.

      She should be retired, from what I am hearing herself and Lungu do not enjoy the best of health.

      They probably looked an Embassy Park and felt, they would want to rest there too.
      I wish her well but she is punching above her abilities.

      Curious what happens to Sampa, Lubinda and Scott.

      Thanks

    • Inonge Wina has been appointed and you cannot change that. In my opinion, she stood by Lungu in the most difficult of times and indeed, she is his closest ally. Inonge Wina is a strong woman, she is resolute. She stood face to face against the Cartel.

    • The one you are referring to as Mr. Kachasu out of your unbridled bitterness is the Head of state now. The one you support on tribal/regional basis is just a president of a party. Try to get to terms and begin to, or learn to respect people. Don’t be too self-centered; think about yourself seriously, the people you are calling names and demeaning are far much better than YOU in many spheres of life. Try to overcome bitterness my dear friend and embrace reality.

    • Hi guys elections are over and the fact is that Edger has won hence can we stop talking on issues with less importance and focus on what he has promised to do for the nation and condemn where he fails.We want actions let him work guys.

  2. Opposition do not lose heart. This is the right time to start re organising yourselves.

    For me it would have been fatal for the opposition to win this election because the nation would have judged them on this very short period of time during the 2016 general election

  3. No you are not going to be reinstated.They employed you on new term of condition and services and that’s it.
    HH promised you unconditional reinstatement but you chosen to let go your terminal benefits.pf is pf and nothing has changed.Mark my words.They promised you that wina aza lila!

  4. I AM NOT SUPRISED THAT NURSES HAVE SENT A MESSAGE COGRATULATING MR. E.C. LUNGU ON HIS ELECTION AS SIXTH ZAMBIAN PRESIDENT. THEIR CONDUCT IS TYPICAL OF ZAMBIANS. IF YOU STEP ON HIS TOE, A ZAMBIAN WOULD TURN AND APOLOGISE TO YOU OR SAY THANK YOU FOR STEPPING ON HIS TOE; THEN HE WOULD WALK AWAY LIMPING.

  5. bazasiya kukamba nanga kunyonkha baleka bwanji? they will talk until no more ELis our president and cattleman wont be the leader God does need pipo who make themselves biger on hez eyes let us suport our new head of state ok and God wil bless zambia.

  6. This was a stupid statement by Yung’ana and does not represent nurses’ views. If he wants an appointment from Lungu he should just join politics. He has over stayed as ZUNO president and he should not behave like it a personal to holder post. Start fighting for nurses instead of sugar coating PF. This not a new government, they are same PF chaps who have been in power for more than three years and do not expect any change.

  7. You voted for continuity, now you want change? indeed Yungana should ‘take a walk’.
    Meanwhile, Ghandi said, ‘you can judge the calibre of a people by the type of leadership they have….’.(paraphhsed by me).
    So when people chose someone to lead them, just know they hold that person in high esteem, way above them in many/all ways…
    As for the rest of those who voted otherwise, just learn to live/deal with it. Live to fight another day.
    continue working hard and believe me, if you do, regardless of who lives at plot one, your life will remain the same.
    Good luck

  8. Right now am the happiest living being- Heartfelt congratulations H. E. Lungu
    You sure are a step in the right direction. Mama Wina am thrilled at your appointment-SOLID WOMAN INDEED. I have hope in this NEW GOVERNMENT.
    Your recognition of Chief Sosala is a plus, The delivery of a people driven Constitution will be another plus, ensure Farmers are paid, create employment for youths, your instance to interact with the common man is ++++, RE-INSTATE THE NURSES and please FLUSH OUT ALL THOSE IN MISSION ABROADS THAT GOT JOBS BY VIRTUE OF EITHER BEING BEMBA OR MOSTLY RELATED TO THE LATE SATA ESP CHRISTINE’S – Trust me most of those are your enemies now. The Foreign Ministry and Missions Abroad job need a to revamp. People need to be appointed by merit Bemba or not.
    Overall WELLDONE E.L
