Rural News Traditional leader in Kawambwa appeals for health post, boreholes

 A traditional leader in Kawambwa is appealing to government to to provide clean drinking water and  put up a health post in his area for his subject to access health services closer to their door steps.

 Sub-chief Chisheta under Chief Munkanta of the Chishinga speaking people says people in his area walk long distances to access health services at the Boma clinic or district hospital.

 ZANIS reports that the sub-chief is also concerned with the poor drinking water points that have contributed to high number of diarrhoea cases being experienced among his subjects especially during the rainy season.

 The traditional leader says the absence of proper drinking water facilities in his area has forced people to be drinking water from the shallow wells.

 The Sub-chief is appealing to government to sink some bore holes to address the water challenges people face in all the nine villages surrounding his chiefdom.
