The Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD) in Chadiza in Eastern Province has suggested that the District Hospital which is nearing completion be named after the late President Levy Mwanawasa.
Chadiza District MMD chairman Harrison Banda said this during the Tree planting exercise held at the hospital premises yesterday.
He said the late President promised the people of Chadiza a hospital when he visited the District a few years before his death.
Mr Banda said true to the late president’s promise, construction of the hospital started in 2006.
He said it made sense to name the hospital after the person who initiated the construction of the first ever district hospital in Chadiza since independence.
