And Nurses from across Northern Province yesterday gathered at Mpulungu habar to commemorate the international nurses day.

The nurses called on government to improve their condition of services.

  1. People, did you see the 28year old Health Minister from Sweden when he visited Zambia? Compare to the fossil sitting there as Minister in the name of Dr Kasonde. At 79years old, one should be at home with grandchildren and available in an advisory capacity if needed. Dr Kasonde is a symbol of an ailing and dysfunctional health system

  2. When they can’t even afford to buy Panadol for the hospitals, he is busy wood winking people that he will modernize. Stop the shit lies you fossil

  3. why not modernize all hospitals?? one presidential trip can pay for cleaning up a few wards somewhere. what is wrong with our govt?

  4. This is just lip service as usual. The govt is not conducting any research to find means and ways of improving the healthcare system in the country. There are no funds meant for such activities and yet govt is lobbying fund and some Chinese to come and do that for them. Zambian students should be given chance to investigate and conduct research to find proper means of improving the healthcare system in the country. We cannot afford to continue relying and waiting for someone to solve our problems in the healthcare sector.
