*By MacPherson Mukuka in Kalomo- Southern Province*

Construction of phase one of Kalomo General Hospital has been completed at a cost of 11 Million Kwacha.

Kalomo District Commissioner COSMAS CHIIBA disclosed the development when water affairs permanent secretary ED CHOMBA paid a courtesy call on him.

Mr. CHIIBA further disclosed that the completed building includes the administration block, outpatient department, and laboratories.

Meanwhile, MR. CHIIBA says construction of phase two of the hospital has commenced.

He says the project which will include a maternity wing, 6 staff houses, and mortuary and wards will be constructed at a cost of 21 Million Kwacha.

MR. CHIIBA has however bemoaned the slow pace at which the construction works are progressing.

He has attributed the delay to the procedure taken in the procurement and delivering of material which he says is done in Lusaka.  

And Bishop CHOMBA has expressed delight over the completion of phase one of the hospital.

He says it is gratifying that construction of the health facility is at an advanced stage.

Meanwhile, Bishop CHOMBA says construction of the hospital alone will be meaningless if the health institution does not get clean and safe water.

He has since urged the District Commissioner to seek advice from the District Water Affairs office on the right procedure of sinking boreholes.

Bishop CHOMBA was on a three day tour of Southern Province to check of the construction and rehabilitation of water infrastructure.
