Senior Chief Nsefu says government should build a district hospital in Mambwe.

Senior Chief Nsefu of the Kunda people in Mambwe says government must give a serious thought to the request to have a district hospital in the district.
The traditional leader says that the population of the district has grown warranting the need of a government hospital.
Senior Chief Nsefu said this through Malaila Cultural Association National Chairperson, John Chilowa during the Malaila Ceremony of the Kunda people yesterday.
Meanwhile, Senior Chief Nsefu says that the human animal conflict has been a serious issue, but ZAWA, the Zambia Wildlife Authority, is too slow to act.
The traditional leader observed that ZAWA responds more quickly to reports of people killing a wild animal, compared to when a person is killed.
He said that ZAWA’s response to such issues is worrisome and called for a change.
Senior Chief Nsefu also expressed disappointment at the difficulties faced in acquiring special licenses.
He explained that every time such a license is applied for, there are always challenges, when others get such licenses without difficulties.
And Eastern Province Minister, Malozo Sichone, said that it is sad that people’s welfare is jeopardized by wild animals.
He explained that he will soon convene a meeting with stakeholders to find a solution.
Mr. Sichone says that in an effort to protect both animals and human beings, President Edgar Lungu has directed that even the Ministry of Defense should get involved.
He also acknowledged the need for Mambwe to have a district hospital adding that plans are in place to build one.
