The Mwinelubemba said this when Minister of Health, Chitalu Chilufya paid a courtesy call on him yesterday.

He noted that the upgrading of Kayambi Mission Health Centre in Mungwi district to a first level hospital will allow people to access advanced medical services within their locality and reduce on the number of referral cases.

And the Paramount Chief has called on government to speed up the construction of the Nseluka- Kayambi road.

And Dr. Chilufya said government remains resolute in ensuring that the country’s primary health care system is strengthened.

He said the Ministry of Health will continue to increase infrastructure and recruitment of staff in the health sector.

  6. Comment:This sounds so great,let the government put more effort in all ministries to satisfy all citizens of this country, as one Zambian one,every individual has the right to good health and all the services that are needed to be provided to him or her because in so doing we expect the life expectance rate to be good as well.

  7. I feel it is the duty of the government to bring development to these areas so there’s no need to sing praises to them. After all that’s why the people voted them and it’s taxpayers money being used.
