He explained that his administration wants to ensure that all public health facilities are well stocked with essential drugs and equipment.

Government has also prioritized the recruitment of health personnel to strengthen the provision health care services.

And President Hichilema says there is need for the Ministry of Education to work with local authorities to procure desks for schools.

He said he is aware that most schools especially in rural areas have recorded overwhelming enrollment levels following the introduction of the free education policy.

The President said his administration was elected on-premise of improving the welfare of poor citizens and remains resolute to the cause.

He also stated that the on-going recruitment of 30,000 teachers will further improve the quality of education.

Earlier, Northern Province Minister Leonard Mbao hailed President Hichilema for ensuring that all regions receive their fair share of development.

  4. What the issue is here is that hh told a reporter months ago not to kneel before him and that only kneel before God. So again hh has been caught lying and being a hypocrite. My president ecl was right.

  5. I think you will find kneeling is our way of showing deep respect – it’s our culture. Sir Evelyn did not kneel to African leaders because he didn’t respect them as he did his own king/queen! Even white people have their own way of showing respect to their queen/king. In fact, in English culture, you curtsy to the queen & may not speak to her unless spoken to! That’s culture. But then, these days it’s dog eat dog and being discourteous has become normal. A child can tell his father/mother to bugger off – who cares…that’s our new world!

  7. @Kaizar Sosala: I remember the incident very well,the said person wanted to kneel for HH and HH told him am not worthy kneeling for,kneel to your God rather. Only that you are a PF cadre otherwise there is a lesson to be learnt here but if u are a PF cadre u wont see the lesson but, anyway let me show u the lesson. HH does not want you to kneel for him yet himself kneels for others,for a simple reason: He wants those people that he kneels for to tell him too that they are not worthy kneeling for, jst as HH does to others. But those people dont tell HH not to kneel so you the leadership difference between HH & all those people he kneels for who continue keep quiet and enjoy to be kneeled for. HH is way smarter for these people – his leadership style is of First World standards, as you can…

  8. Taking into account the prevailing political weather, Chewas in Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique should feel proud of Paramount Chief Gawa Undi who has refrained from engaging into politics. Paramount Chief Gawa Undi has displayed his wisdom by steering clear of national politics. MAY GOD BLESS OUR Paramount Chief Gawa Undi with may more years of the rare wisdom he has provided.
