Share

President Hakainde Hichilema has reiterated his commitment to unlocking barriers that hindered development in many parts of the country.

Speaking when he addressed Heads of Government Departments, President Hichilema in Namwala today, the President said he will be spending 60 percent of his time unlocking barriers that were blocking development.

He said in the last one year and some months his government has exhibited lianiace towards those resisting change by ignoring what is laid down in the party manifesto.

The Head of State pointed out issues like the decentralisation of the Constituency Development Fund CDF which is now controlled by the Constituency.

In the health sector, Mr Hichilema said Level Three Namwala District Hospital will be completed next year with its annexes such as Mortuary, Theatre as well as provision of an Ambulance and equipment.

He has since directed the Provincial Minister to ensure that the facility is completed within 2023.

The President emphasised that what will be done at Namwala Hospital, Kalomo and Choma Hospitals respectively will be running concurrently with projects in other provinces.

He said his government will not segregate any province in terms of development based on political stronghold.

President Hakainde Hichilema who is accompanied by first lady Mutinta Hichilema is in Namwala to among other activities donate festive hampers at Namwala District Hospital.

Meanwhile, Southern Province Minister Cornelius Mweetwa has thanked the President for his continued remainder to the public service workers to remain devoted to duty despite different places of deployment.

  2. HH by Directing Cornelius Mweetwa to complete the construction of Namwala level three hospital is wasting time. Mweetwa only knows politicking, talking, press briefings and how tiorun away from the people of choma that voted for him. He has never visited us in Gwembe district just talking all over. The southern province is missing the quality practical and all embracing leadership of Edify Hamukale although he was a PF minister. We saw real tangible development with structured thinking which excited us as Civil servants. That was a leader not this jocker mweetwa who cant even tell us his development vision for the province. The roads here in Gwembe are bad, really bad and gravel

  3. This country has gone to the dogs
    It is been run by an incompetent bunch of failures in upnd. Surely, how can the country run out of plan B pills during the festive period. This is f00Iish. Nga ama side chick, how will men manage

  4. You make me laugh at your comments Kaizar Zulu. At least HH is showing regrets at stealing from Zambians. He is at least giving something back to Zambians. May I urge you and your friends in PF to also invest the money that you were stealing with Edgar Lungu, into projects to help poor Zambians.

  5. Provincial region: why are you letting the president get away with these kinds of statements? Taxation without representation.

    Next we want to see presidential Candidates from the provincial level.

Because of their ability to set legal precedent in regions that cover millions of Americans, the United States courts of appeals have strong policy influence on U.S. law.” Wikipedia.
