A project to construct a health post in Masiwa area of Chief Madzimawe in Chipata has hit a snag.
This is because the clinic whose construction works have not yet been completed might not be completed due to shortage of building materials.
Chairperson of Works Committee Lingson Zulu says that the project has run out of cement and roofing sheets.
Mr. Zulu says that clinic project is the only hope for people in the area to easily access medical services.
He explained that people have to walk about seven kilometres to access medical services at Madzimawe clinic, which is a challenge.
Mr. Zulu has appealed to government to assist stating that they only need about 10 pockets of cement and ten roofing sheets to complete the health facility.
