President Edgar Lungu

President Edgar Lungu has ordered a prompt inquiry into the power supply failure at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) which occurred yesterday.

President Lungu has directed the Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya together with the Minister of Energy Mathew Nkhuwa to promptly carry out investigations into the circumstances that led to the incident.

The Head of State further requires the two ministers to render a report by the end of today.

This is contained in a press statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka this afternoon by Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda.

    • Mr Edgar Lungu, there are no medicines at UTH, no equipment and not enough staff…please investigate and fix that too.

  2. It’s not like he will do anything to the people responsible. He is the most ineffective President this country has ever had the misfortune to have. This is whole exercise is a waste of time.

  3. In lungus whole presidency only the firing of the minister of housing and sanitation in the wake of the cholera epidemic was the only time lungu showed leadership.

    The rest of the time he has been a mere spectator in the rot taking place…..

  4. Me thinks lungu is only trying to cover for the revelations of $1.7 million spent in 3 days visiting the UN in NY…….

    Lungu how many students could have been sponsored with that money ?? How many schools with no toliets could have had toilets built or dooms ??

    You are a disgrace ….

  5. Incompetence galore. Why should it be after the fact?…..trying to put out the fire after it has completely ravaged the forest. The UTH hospital structure has been in existence for well over 4 decades and has seen renovation after renovation… shouldn’t a fully functioning power backup system be in place?

  6. Inquiry?? Just ask the engineers at ZESCO to explain. Clearly this was a technical problems. Why an inquiry that will cost thousands of kwacha if not millions in sitting allowances… money that can be used to buy generators for UTH. RUBBISH PRESIDENT.

  8. This Jonathan Chakolwa, Chagwa is never serious, only reactive, NEVER proactive.
    Remember after the Election violence which he & his bonehead lieutenants, Chimpyongo, & Kaiser were wholly responsible, he gathered some cheerleading praise singing Cadres, paid them lots of Taxpayers cash, to investigate electoral violence, when all the time he knows he was the conductor, of the same violence perpetrated against Zambians.
    Up to now despite taxpayers cash that could be used for drugs in our dilapidated hospitals being squandered, there’s been NO conclusive report or findings given to citizens.
    Professor Jona Chakolwa Mwibala is a DRUNKEN CROOK INDEED!

  9. Lack of oversight; when is this administration going to take full responsibility instead of shifting blame and offer to resign?

  10. #13 Keleni, just the name Lungu irritates you, I mean as an eastern name, you would have preferred Halungu or Syamalungu perhaps? Just say so we can rename him complete with a village next to yours.
