RODNEY SIKUMBA, a member of parliament for Livingstone, says he would work with the Ministry of Health to see that Linda Clinic’s modern wards are finished.
The development of a modern structure at Linda Clinic in the Livingstone constituency has been stuck for more than five years. Mr. SIKUMBA, who is also the Minister of Tourism, said this while inspecting the site.
The lawmaker for Livingstone stated that he will also look into methods to use a portion of the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) to increase access to healthcare services in the area.
Male, female, and children’s wards are scheduled to be housed in the stalled facility once it is finished. Africa Impact, a humanitarian group, paid for the building at a cost of roughly 1.5 million Kwacha.
Mr. SIKUMBA gave the management at Linda Clinic cleaning supplies after viewing the facility.
Following the donor’s withdrawal, the Livingstone District Health Director, FACEROY NKOLE, stated that the health team is looking forward to the contemporary health facility’s completion.
The health team in the district, according to Dr. NKOLE, is particularly pleased that the MP has acknowledged the difficulties faced by Linda Clinic, which is housed in an old public structure that was formerly a bar.
According to ASHOK SURATI, president of the Mosi-Oa-Tunya Rotary Club, the organization will make an effort to collaborate with the district health team to enhance the provision of healthcare in the region.
