Kitwe Teaching Hospital (KTH) may have received a boost to its sagging fortunes, as government has promised a lifeline of over K10 million to improve the hospital’s infrastructure outlook.
Senior Medical Superintendent, Seke Kazuma, gave hint of this development on Saturday.
Kazuma told Copperbelt Minister, Elias Matambo, who led a team of Unted Party for National Development (UPND ) on a cleaning exercise on Saturday that the decision by government to allocate K10.9 million towards rehabilitation of KTH was a milestone.
Already, he said K3.2 million had been paid by the Government to address the water and sanitation challenges at the hospital.
Kazuma said the funds towards infrastructure development would be used to paint the hospital building, improve the roads and repair the roofs to prevent leakages.
The UPND leadership on Saturday cleaned the Kitwe Teaching Hospital (KTH) as part of the two years anniversary.
The UPND cleaning exercise was led by Copperbelt chairperson, Matambo, who mopped the wards.
President Hakainde Hichilema earlier this week launched the countrywide 10-day cleaning and community activities as part of the ruling party’s two years in office celebrations.
Matambo said after the cleaning exercise in Kitwe that President Hichilema was committed to ensuring that the hospital was worked on.
He said the party has various community programmes to celebrate the second-year anniversary in office.
Matambo added that members from the ruling had been encouraged to do various community programmes in all the districts on the Copperbelt.
He told the audience that government would continue working towards improving the livelihood of Zambian people.
