GOVERNMENT will this month start building six modern clinics in Luanshya Constituency using the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) for 2014.
Area Member of Parliament Stephen Chungu said the construction would start any time this month after completing the selection of the contractors to be engaged.
Mr Chungu said the clinics would be built in Kamirenda, Buntungwa Overspill, Walale area, Kafubu Farm Bloc and Fisenge using the design of the newly-constructed clinic in North Town Township that he officially opened yesterday.
He was speaking in Luanshya on Tuesday during the official opening of the North Town Clinic.
The clinic was built at a cost of K310, 000 from the 2012 CDF.
“We will this month start the construction of six clinics in other townships in Luanshya. We will use the design of this clinic here. We want health services to be closer to our people in all townships,” he said.
Mr Chungu reiterated Government’s commitment to delivering proper health services because good health was the cornerstone of a productive population.
He said Government was also building a children’s hospital in Chibolwa Township at a cost of K1 million and was also working with the private sector to set a 1×3 block of staff houses at Misaka Clinic.
Luanshya District medical officer Peter Mulenga said North Town Clinic would not only offer health services to the people in the urban area but also others from peri-urban areas in the district.
Dr Mulenga said the construction of more clinics would help the Ministry of Health offer services to the satisfaction of the community.
Luanshya District Commissioner Harold Mbaulu praised Mr Chungu and his constituency officials for putting the CDF to good use.
Luanshya Mayor Nathan Chanda also commended Mr Chungu and his team for using the CDF for projects that benefitted the entire community.
