    • Most Zambian nurses kwena, bama temper! It’s probably because some of them report to work with hangover after dununaling with gallons of hunters dry or shakeshake most of their free time.

    • The mans child died. Its a highly emotional situation for a parent. I do believe many loving parents would have battered the very nurse, should they have suspected death as a result of negligence.

    • Yes Auzi… you are right. The sick are taken to the hospital to be cared for. Not to be neglected. I know many nurses in government and private hospitals who are negligent of their responsibilities.

    • NEZ, Just accept that the party you are supporting is made up of crooks and thugs. Mazabuka is pure UPND and this behaviour is a tactic to try and blame the PF government but you ended up beating one of you own supporters from Kwahaye

    • So sad @Jay Jay; such grammatical blunders should not be emanating from our so called ‘trained journalists’. This speaks a lot about our education system.

  5. Why did this man take his child to a government hospital when Zambia Sugar have their own clinic and they do admit patients? I am a nurse and if anyone tries to attack me I will beat the stupidity out of him or her. You bring your children or relatives that area almost dead and do you expect nurses to perform miracles when you know that there is shortage of health workers? If you go to the hospital with a bad attitude then do not the best services. That assailant must be imprisoned and meet his child in hell because he is a devil. He should not be allowed to be roaming in the streets like a rabied dog. The reporter should have named the criminal in the report so that we look for him.

  7. The nurses at Mazabuka General hopsital especially maternity ward are very stupid,you would take your wife you will find this stupid nurse busy what-sapping at work,there is poor services at the hospital,the child is was three days old not what is being reported. Mazabuka General hospital and Ndeke clinic needs to improve,these two stations are weird and very stupid to mention the list. kudos to Kaonga Clinic. Next time i will publish their names here,the sister in-charge should be removed together with her staff, Dr. Chitalu could please find an amicable solution for this poor hospital with incompetent members of staff.
