The ultra-modern Chinsali General Hospital under construction in Muchinga Province has advanced.
And Chinsali Senior Citizens who toured the project in the company of Muchinga Province Permanent Secretary (PS), Jobbicks Kalumba have commended the Government for exhibiting its commitment towards bringing health services closer to the people.
The Chinsali General Hospital under construction which is set for completion this year has now reached 58 percent complete.
Muchinga Province PS said the advancement of the ultra-modern health facility brings much hope to the people of Chinsali of accessing quality health services.
Dr Kalumba added that the contractor engaged to do the project, China National Complete Engineering Company have shown commendable commitment towards the completion of the project.
And Clerk of Works from the Ministry of Housing and Infrastructure who is supervising the project, Kunda Kunda, said the project is at 58 per cent completion with only a few remaining works to be done.
Mr Kunda lamented that the project had slowed down due to the rain season which forced the workers to go on an industrial break.
He however, charged that works are now up and running in order to beat projected target of completing the hospital before the end of 2019.
He further mentioned that some hospital equipment have already arrived on site in readiness for installation as soon as the project is nearing completion.

Mr Chifwamba further stated that, the people of Chinsali and Muchinga in general, will forever remain indebted to government for the gift given to them in form of a modern health facility.
