Patients admitted to Kabompo

district hospital are eating one meal per day because of inadequate industrial cooking pots.

District hospital administrator, Nancy Mukosa confirmed the
development to ZANIS in an interview in Kabompo today.

Ms Musoka said the other two electrical pots broke down several years
ago and could not be repaired because spare parts are not locally
available leaving the kitchen to operate on just one pot.

She however said that the hospital is awaiting the purchase of a new industrial pot by the l ministry of health.

Ms Musoka confirmed that at the moment only one pot is being used for cooking all the hospital meals at breakfast, lunch and supper.

Last month provincial permanent secretary Augustine Seyuba visited the hospital and said
that government would look into the issue.
