George Bush coming to Zambia to renovate clinic

Bush painting a clinic used to screen and treat cancer in Kabwe, Zambia

Former USA President George W. Bush will return to Zambia next week to help renovate another women’s clinic.

Bush’s office in Dallas on Saturday announced the 43rd president and his wife, Laura, will travel to Livingstone, Zambia, in support of the George W. Bush Institute global health initiative.

The Bushes last July helped renovate a women’s health center in Kabwe  about 90 miles north of the Zambian capital, Lusaka. Officials say that center has screened and treated nearly 30,000 women since opening last summer.

The clinic in Livingstone is scheduled to open July 1.

Following their trip to Zambia, the Bushes will travel to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, to host the Bush Institute’s African First Ladies Summit, Investing in Women: Strengthening Africa

    good for your tattered imageo(zambia) this guy did more for africa than blak obama or kili ntoni. he is the one who initiated the PEPFAR program which has put millions or ARVs through CDC.

    It is not help? It is sad news for Zambia. The evil forces are converging on Zambia. Please cervical cancer clinic or women health is their own propaganda to help depopulate sub Saharan. What AIDS will leave out will be wiped out by challenges faced by our young women who are the targets. See ‘victims of Gardasil vaccination you tube’ please. Type it as it is in quotation marks and see what benefits to Zambia this aid is other than monitoring the effectiveness of their strategies. We need good advisors to our presidents who can think outside the boxes and reject some of these so called AID.

    True, you can bet on it he is skipping meeting Zondwe this time around after the embarrassing encounter with the baboon from kwa Nabwalya last time he was here. Further, I hear it stinks at Plot 1!

    BUSH is interested in the URENIUM in Lumwana. Sata is giving him problems on this investment. That is why he keeps comming to “renovate a clinic’.

    GOOD MOVE. WHY CAN’T THIS VOCAL OPPOSITION PARTY LEADERS TAKE A LEAF FROM THIS. THEY CLAIM TO BE RICH AND MAJOR SUPPLIERS TO CATTLE EMBALMING COMPANIES BUT WE HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THEM PUTTING UP EVEN A SMALL CLINIC FOR THE COMMUNITY, NOT EVEN IN THEIR SMALL TRIBAL AREAS WHERE THEY CLAIM TO HAVE SUPPORT.

    Please! Don’t be misled. If Bush means good to human race or Zambia, why didn’t he do it while in office? He invaded Irag on the pretence of helping the people of Irag and promoting democracy with Dick and Ramsfield.Has it happened? Where were the weapons of mass destruction he gave as the reason for killing both Irags and many innocent American soldiers. The truth is this man always has an agenda. Why attracted to Zambia? Don’t bells rings? This man belongs to an Occult (Skull and Bones) and the cervical or health promotion is just a cover up(weapons of mass destruction) for a big Agenda for Zambia and sub Saharan Africa. Please check it out. I am not scaring anybody but check the Capital hill’s 50 year policy targeting sub Sahara or the black population. If you think I am mad, check out reports of cervical cancer vaccine(Gardasil) side effects. It has left a trail of disability, pain and deaths. I worked in the health sector in South Africa, Lesotho, Zambia and UK and I feel for my country.

    I reside in UK now and a year ago a girl died at a school only 3 miles from my home. My two daughters attends this same school and people laughed at me when I refused my daughters from getting the vaccine.It was news for a while but as usual there were strong arguments dissociating this vaccine from the vaccine. PLEASE TP IN your URL: victims of Gardasil vaccine or even better: ‘victims of Gardasil vaccine you tube’ . Prove me wrong. I can only say check out the vaccine history but as for me I can only thank God for my decision I took. I am not sure how I would be feeling if that girl was my daughter after knowing the side effects before hand. PLEASE I AM NOT SAYING THAT VACCINES ARE BAD BUT IAM SAYING THAT WE SHOULD BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT SOME OF THE SUPPOSED CHARITIES OR PEOPLE PRETENDING TO BE BENEFACTORS WHEN THEIR HISTORY DENIES IT.

        edward mumbi,another ignorant zambian trying to be controversial so that people notice him. my friend,try to read medical science journals and search vaccines from their library. just maybe you might start to understand what “tell the truth” is trying to put across. AM also against mass non personalized vaccines.
