Minister advised hospital management to open the health facility
Chama, May 12, ZANIS ——Muchinga Province Minister Gerry Chanda says there is need for management at Chama district health office to quickly open the Chama district hospital whose construction works have now entered phase three in order to protect the structures from vandalism.
Speaking in Chama yesterday when he inspected the KR600, 000 project, Col. Chanda said that since most of the works have been completed, it will be better if the facility could be opened and allow members of the public to access quality health care as close to their homes as possible.
Col. Chanda said that the remaining works which include sewer ponds, power and walk-ways cannot stop the facility from opening its doors to the public.
The Provincial Minister who is on a familiarization tour of the district checking on developmental projects and meeting heads of government departments said it will be a sad development to see the facility being vandalized because it is taking long to become operational.
Construction works at this district hospital started in 2009.
