President Hichilema Donates Generator to Chitanda Lumamba Adventist Hospital


President Hakainde Hichilema has made a significant donation of a state-of-the-art generator to Chitanda Lumamba Adventist Hospital in Central Province, underscoring his commitment to improving healthcare infrastructure in the region.

The donation was presented by Roma Chilengi, Presidential Advisor on Health, on behalf of President Hichilema. Chilengi highlighted that the donation aligns with the commitment made by the President during the commissioning of the facility in October last year.

Professor Chilengi, who also serves as Director General of the Zambia National Public Health Institute (ZNPHI), emphasized President Hichilema’s dedication to bringing development closer to the people. He cited the decentralization of the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) as evidence of this commitment.

In response to the generous donation, Senior Chief Chitanda Lumamba of the Lenje speaking people expressed gratitude to the Head of State for fulfilling his promises. He urged the people in his Chiefdom to protect the equipment and report any instances of vandalism, warning that offenders would face consequences.

Additionally, SDA President of the Northern Zambia Union, Pastor Tommy Namitondo, praised the donation, noting that the generator would significantly enhance the hospital’s operations. He emphasized that increased access to electricity would not only benefit the health facility but also extend to surrounding areas.


  1. These issues are national issues and not personal. Why not do his job as president to facilitate generators to all hospitals other than making a single donation to a clinic owned by the Church where he is Church elder.

    • Sir or Madam, why don’t you also donate in your personal capacity and then challenge the president to facilitate generators to all hospital as you put …… ask not what the country can do for you but what YOU can do for the country
      Don’t just be a couch critic!

    • Hamasaka is annoying, He is still watchdog under PF. How can a generator be “state of the art”? Why not just say a Mitsubishi generator for example.
      State-of-the art President HH.

    • @Nostradamus Just look at the title he gave himself as soon as he went into State House. He did away with Special Assistant for Press

  2. @Nostradamus, Hamasaka has very limited vocabulary. Just his first paragraph you can tell it is him. Same words like “underscoring his commitment”, “unprecedented”, “milestone”. His vocabulary has even been made narrow since of late he can not use vulgar language the way he did on his dog-watch. That is what you get for employing tribesmen to do your work other than professionals.

  3. Malabish! this is taking the biscuit out of people. How can a servant make a donation to their boss? These people are making donations to you everyday so that you can fly comfortably to places these people can only dream of. Your only job as a caretaker is to make sure our resources yield good returns for the citizens to live a decent life. How can a president of a country have more money than an entire country? Something is not quite right with Zambia.

  4. The hospital was built by private interests and later donated to the 7th Day Adventist Church to run for the benefit of the local community. This was a promise made to people in the area and it has been delivered. HH allows his presidential salary to pile up in the bank. After that he draws it and donates to various charitable causes. HH delivering as promised.
