State builds mortuary at Kalene Mission Hospital

GOVERNMENT has constructed a mortuary at Kalene Mission Hospital in Ikelenge district in North-Western Province at a total cost of K170 million.
Ikelenge district medical officer Fred Kapaya disclosed this when North-Western Province permanent secretary Augustine Seyuba visited the hospital recently. The mortuary can accomodate six bodies.
The hospital, which was built in 1906, has never had a mortuary.
The health institution, which is run by the Christian Missionaries in Main Lands (CMML), caters for 44,000 people in the catchment area.
However, Dr Kapaya said the figure sometimes doubles or even more because the hospital also receives patients from Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
He said foreigners are charged for them to receive treatment while Zambians are treated free of charge in accordance with Government’s policy.
Dr Kapaya said apart from the K170 million used to construct a mortuary, the hospital also needs K70 million to put up a walk path and mourners’ shelter at the institution.
He said the hospital faces a challenge of inadequate transport for ferrying drugs to far-flung areas.
And Mr Seyuba said it is gratifying that missionaries are supplementing Government’s efforts in the provision of medical services to the local people.
On Sunday, Chief Kanyaseya complained to Mr Seyuba that the local people are being forced to bury their dead loved ones within 24 hours because of lack of a mortuary at the hospital. / Daily Mail
