Muchinga Province Minister Malozo Sichone has bemoaned the poor work culture of some government workers at Michael Chilufya Sata Hospital in Mpika district.The Provincial Minister expressed his displeasure yesterday when he paid a courtesy call on Mpika District Commissioner Moses Katebe.

Mr Sichone said he has been receiving disturbing reports that some workers at the Michael Chilufya Sata Hospital have been using unpalatable language and not paying attention to clients who seek medical attention at the health facility.He noted with sadness that due to poor services being offered at the Institution, most residents in the district have preferred to go to Chilonga Mission Hospital which is over 27 kilometres away from Mpika, when the Michael Chilufya Sata Hospital is only 10 kilometres away from the town.

Mr Sichone added that the medical staff at the high level hospital have been given enough time and warning to change their poor attitude towards work but unfortunately, nothing seems to change, a situation he described as unacceptable.The Provincial Minister pointed out that his office will not hesitate to begin transferring and retiring some officers in order bring sanity at the said health institution.

He explained his office will not allow a few irresponsible workers to frustrate Government efforts and deny the much needed health services that the Community disparately need.When contacted for a comment, Mpika Health Director Jane Mwenda said the matter is currently under investigation, and has promised to give more details in due course.

  4. They are just following in the footsteps of the country’s leadership. Getting paid to warm seats and on top of that stealing. Elisa has always said that most Zambian like sweet without sweat. For those with a short memory, elisa is my Swiss wife

    • Lusakan did you know that the outskirts of London where I live are one of the most expensive parts of London? Did you know that my home is currently valued at 2.4 million pounds? A village here is better than a city here and million times better than the best area in Zambia. Ukupwalala

  5. Mr Sichone you are just trying to appear relevant. All you are saying is the norm in government institutions. Yourself, why are you never at your base in Chinsali? How does the provincial administration operate when you are NEVER there?
