Northern Province Minister, Chungu Bwalya says the government has made great strides in taking health services closer to the people as evidenced by the completion of 69 health posts in the region.
Speaking during the official opening of Nshindaila Health Post in Lupososhi District, Mr. Bwalya said the government has continued to prioritize the health of citizens as key to social-economic development.
Mr. Bwalya who is also Lupososhi Member of Parliament said the completion of the 69 prefabricated health posts given to the province is evidence of government’s commitment to improving health care services in the country.
He said the government’s commitment to strengthen health systems through a primary health care approach deserves commendation from all Zambians.
Mr. Bwalya stated that people in the area used to cover long distances to access health services.
“The PF government has invested heavily in the health sector which no previous governments can be compared to hence we have to give credit where it is due,” he added.
Meanwhile, Chieftainess Chungu of the Bemba-speaking people of Lupososhi District has hailed the government for constructing the health post in her chiefdom.
Chieftainess Chungu who was represented by Nshindaila Senior Village Headman, Boston Nshindaila said people in the area are relieved with the construction of the health post.
“People especially women used to face difficulties to access health services as they have to cover long distances,” he said
And Lupososhi District Commissioner, Mambwe Katontoka disclosed that six health posts have been constructed in the district under the PF government.
Ms. Katontoka added that two mini hospitals and a district hospital are under construction while two other mini hospitals are yet to be commissioned.
She expressed confidence the health post will reduce maternal and child mortality rates.
“People are grateful to the government for embarking on a number of developmental projects in the district,” Ms. Katontoka further said.
And District Health Director, Kelvin Mulemwa disclosed that despite inadequate staffing, his office has managed to reassign health workers to the newly commissioned health post to reduce the distances.
“Nshindaila health post is expected to provide outpatient curative services, promotive and preventive health services such as health education, family planning services and antenatal services among others,” he added.
With doctors, nurses and medicines in there or the usual election gymnastics of hoodwinking?
Ba PF mulimbe, it will not be easy for you out there in the August polls . After messing up big time you have very little support where I live in Northern province. People are now aware that you recklessly borrowed and all the money is servicing debts, yes driving on very good roads tied to debts but a very hungry population.
Now all these 650 Indian Exim Bank funded Health posts will be showcased as PF creations, some are deliberately being stalled so when they come to campaign they point to them when the money is already there and the Indian contractor waiting.
Meanwhile utupuba tuletalika.
I am currently in my office working. I then got a call from my wlfe and panicked thinking what is going on at home. When I answered she said she was just calling me to tell me she loves me. You guys if this is not real love then I don’t know what it is.
You can even complete 1000 posts still more your time has come.
I THOUGHT LT WAS GOING TO SHOW US SOME OF THE PICTURES FOR THE HEALTH POSTS. SERIOUSLY POOR REPORTING INDEED.
ALL Democracies are about SOTAMPO. TRUMPS uses his massive investiment in hotels as some of his achievements. BIDEN is using timely dellIvery of covid vacine. Your under5 is in trouble.

Kasenga K, you are not update to what drives development without good roads you forget about anything to do with development, without good roads you are living in a jungle you cannot collect farm products you cannot take the sick to to hospitals and bad roads kills people through road accidents, with bad roads you cannot visit your relationship in villages that is only to name a few, what you should know is that no one will put money in your account if you don’t work, work is not just someone gives a job but you can create yours if you are an able bodied person.
We have heard of empowerment funds being given out why can’t you take advantage and get yours to do any business that can give you a lively hood.
