Luanshya Mayor Nathan Chanda has bemoaned the lack of medical equipment at Roan General Hospital.
Mr Chanda said as an elected leader he will lobby Government to come to the aid of the people of Luanshya.
Roan General Hospital has no X-ray and Ultrasound machine, putting pressure on Thomson Hospital which is small.
The people of Roa, Mpatamatu, and other sounding areas are forced travel and wait for the only operating machines at Thomson Hospital in Town.
And Mayor Chanda has assured the people of Roan, Mpatamatu and other surrounding areas to exercise patience.
Mr Chanda said a good Health is a prerequisite for sustainable nation development which positively contributes to the growth of the nation and key to the economic development of the country.

“We have a President in Edgar Lungu who cares for the people. Let me assure the people that as your elected mayor, I will lobby to the President to come to our aid. We will ask the President through the minister of Health Dr Chitalu Chilufya” Mr Chanda said.

“Thomson Hospital is a first level hospital which is smaller than Roan General hospital. So looking at the number of people seeking services, the x-ray and Ultrasound machines at the hospital can’t meet the demand.” We have hope that our good and listening President will come and help our people. As mayor of Luanshya, I will not rest until these machines come to our general hospital.” We are lucky in Zambia that we have a leader who is bringing unprecedented development in the health sector and this is good for our nation” Chanda said

  2. No Zambian public office bearer would stage public talk without mention of ECL. Reason, Presidents of Africa have so much power ,because they ought to be mentiined even over petty subjects.
