Vice President Inonge Wina has urged contractors working on public infrastructure projects to do their job with a sense of urgency so that the needy communities can start benefiting.

Speaking when she commissioned Menga Health Post in Luwingu today, Mrs. Wina said government is constructing the 650 health post in hard to reach places to ensure people get free primary health care services.

ZNBC’s Gershom Musonda reports that the Vice President praised Angelica Construction company for the timely completion of Menga Health Post at a cost of 73 thousand US Dollars, a facility that will serve over 7-thousand local people.

Luwingu has been allocated nine new health posts of which 5 have been completed.

Northern Province has been allocated 69 health posts, with 40 having been completed and 10 nearing completion.

And the Vice President says upgrading of health facilities will continue, while distribution of essential drugs is being streamlined through the introduction of medical hubs serving health centres.

Health Minister Joseph Kasonde, provincial minister FREEDOM SIKAZWE, Deputy Minister in the Vice President’s Office BWALYA CHUNGU, other government officials attended the event.

    • Bo Wina, mwansesela elyokawa. Too late, too little. When did you realize that the projects are not moving at the speed they should move on? PF just tell people about the more money you promised and the less taxes within 90days theory.

  5. Urging contractors to do the work with a sense of urgency when you the same government is delaying to honor contractors claims. You are not paying contractors on time as a government. Where do you want contractors to get the money from to do the works quickly. Financiers are saying its risky to lend contractors because no one knows when the money will be paid back. Think Wina.
