  1. the move is welcome and its aimed at improving people’s lives by way of providing timely medical logistics near to the people. to people commenting politically motivated comments i can say you dont have the interest of people at heart. for once lets look at zambia outside outside politics.

  2. @Sinene. I take it ” people” are only found in North Eastern Rhodesia hence 3 warehouses and inly one token one for Northwestern Rhodesia. Or maybe thats where the sick people are!!. Definitely skewed politically motivated dustribution. I would say 1 for Kasama, one for Mongu, one for Solwezi and one for Chipata. The distribution should be provincial towns far from the line of rail. People drive from Choma to Lusaka and back same day. Not so for Chipata, Solwezi Mongu or Kasama, Mansa to be covered by Kasama. Much better if each province had one
