United Party for National Development UPND women have accused Kafue District Commissioner Grace Ngulube of blocking them from carrying out some community services at the District hospital.
UPND Lusaka province chair lady Wendy Mulenga said women from the opposition party wanted to clean the wards and the hospital surroundings as well as make a donation to the hospital but the DC has blocked them.
She appealed to Ms Ngulube to allow the women help out at the hospital saying: ” we see no reason why we should be blocked when we just want to help alleviate the suffering of our brothers and sisters because we have seen that the PF government has failed in the health sector.”
She appealed to the DC to think about the suffering of the people in the district and allow the opposition party women to help them.
“We have seen the suffering that people are going through and we are simply trying to help by doing some community work at the hospital so we are appealing to Mrs Ngulube to please such your soul and think about the suffering of your people,” Ms Mulenga said.
She further claimed that plain clothed police officers have been deployed in the district to watch the movement of the UPND and are turning away members from Lusaka district who are part of group who are suppose to do community work at the hospital.
Ms Mulenga said this in a phone interview from Kafue.
