Luwingu headman reserves land for construction of health post

A village headman in Senior Chief Shimumbi’s area in Luwingu district has reserved one hectare of land in readiness for the construction of a health post near Malekani Primary School.

Malekani village headman of the Bemba speaking people told Luwingu District Commissioner, Mambwe Katontoka, that land to construct a health post in his area had been arranged.

She said people in his area were happy that government, under the leadership of President Michael Sata, had considered giving them a health post which would alleviate some of the health problems the community had gone through the past 50 years.

And Ms Katontoka said the health post to be constructed at Malekani Primary School would be one of the 650 health facilities the government intended to construct countrywide.

She said government, through the Roads Development Agency, would  construct Mumana Lupando-Chifwile road and maintain all the bridges along the road to enable farmers transport their farm produce easily to the market.
