Three health posts completed in Mitete District 


Three out of six Health Posts being constructed under the 650 project have been completed in Mitete District in Western province .
Mitete District Commissioner (DC) Alfred Miyato  says  that the remaining three are on slab level.
The  three health posts that have been completed are Mbangweta, Manjolo and Mambungo health posts .  
He said Mbangweta health post is already operational.
Mr. Miyato explainmed that  Manjolo and Mambungo Health Posts will be handed over and open to the public next week.
The DC says the remaining three (3) to be built in Lupui, Washishi and Chinonwe will also be completed and handed over to the public before the end of the year.
Mr. Miyato said once all the six health posts will be completed it will enable Government to provide primary health care services as close to home as possible.
And speaking in a separate interview, Sianga Sianga of Mbangweta area in Mitete district   thanked Government for fulfilling its promise to the people in the area.
Mr. Sianga said it was hard for the communities in the area to access proper medical care as health facilities available are far. 
He added that with the construction of the health posts in every district, distance will not be a problem anymore.
Mitete District is one of the districts that have benefited from the 650 health posts to be built countrywide.


  1. I am suggesting the use of graphics to keep track of completion of Health Posts around the country. It is a matter of marking the item as COMPLETED or INCOMPLETE. There is need to keep public projects always on the spotlight to avoid confusion. Present PROVINCE by PROVINCE and DISTRICT by DISTRICT. Include the name of each item for readers to understand and appreciate what you are saying about.
