Kabwe District Commissioner Patrick Chishala has said government was working hard to accelerate the process of transforming the Lusaka-Kabwe road into a dual carriage way.
And Mr. Chishala has disclosed that measures were being devised to ensure that accidents along the Great North Road were minimised.
He said this in Lusaka today when he visited one Chisamba accident victim, Oscar Mwale, who is currently admitted to the University Teaching Hospital.
The other victim in the accident which claimed at least 17 lives on April 30, 2013, was discharged yesterday.
Mr. Chishala, who gave the victim with a KR1, 500 which is needed for his x-ray, reiterated government’s commitment to ensuring that every Zambian was well taken care of.
He said it was his prayer that the victim recovers quickly and rejoins his family and people of Kabwe soon.
He further said government also wished surviving accident victims could recover quickly because some of them were bread winners in their families.
Mr. Chishala disclosed that government, with the help from some well wishers in Kabwe, will through his office ensure that whatever may be needed to speed up the recovery process of the victim was provided.
And a nurse that was found in the ward where Mwale is admitted, Fridah Mwaba, said the victim’s condition has improved from the time he was admitted to the health institution.
Aunt to the victim, Hildah Musonda, was grateful to government and the District Commissioner the help rendered to the family.
