Cholera Centre Workers Down Tools

Workers at the cholera centre at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka have downed tools protesting reduced allowances paid to them.

The workers have abandoned the cholera patients after allegedly being paid K50 for each of the days they have been in employment instead of the agreed K350.

Heroes was turned into a cholera centre in December last year following growing numbers of patients.

    Who can pay them? These pipo don’t care about others lives. Just learn something. Very unfortunate, when pipo speak, they say “this is not a political matter” why don’t these potitians know the meaning of politics? Sure pipo are dying and the government is very little to finish the challenges. Keep supporting them if these matters are not related to poor governance. My fellow Zambian 2021 may be too long for us to survive, let’s all stand to demand for an early election in order to save lives. From chorela hunger is also on the way. Even in the Bible when God was not happy with leader,plagues and calamities inflicted the pipo. This leadership we have is not from God that’s why we are facing very strange calamities such as drought, armyworm, chorela and severe hunger that is coming in the next season.

      Surely you see a curse in cholera issue,is this the first time that cholera has broken out in Zambia,this situation is not even the worst. There was situation where people were buried in mass graves. This issue doesn’t guarantee for early election.

    Volunteering is not a mistake that people should be treated in an inhuman way leaders mind you one day you will be out of employment and you will need to volunteer in one way or the other and you will see hw painful it is if treated in the same way

  6. Robby Chola

    Kindly pay our committed workers. The wage bill or allowances will definitely cost less than the cost of two by-elections.

    Its not fair to pay someone whose treating a chorela patient a K50,that is shit money to be honest bcoz its risky business to care for those affected. Where does the money funded by the donors go?Corruption seems to have taken over the govt of the day.??

    Doctors, Lawyers, Economist and accountants all behave the same way in believing that they are the only ones that matter.

    This isn’t the only ones, i was a participant at Kanyama clinic where they paid part of the money to those who where giving the cholera vaccine. I was so disappointed with the act compared to what was pumped into the same Cholera.

  16. FGM

    Surely those people are doing a risky job, pay them handsomely. I hope its not corruption at play again.

  17. commando

    They are paying the care givers peanuts KAILI they’ve siphooned the funds pumped into the so-called fighting cholera.Our political and civic leaders are heartless and so self centred who think that other people’s work is less important compared to theirs.Surely how can a person attending to cholera patients be paid K50? What is bad about the whole thing is that an agreement was initially reached by the two parties but the paymaster thought it ‘wise’ to break the agreement.If it were our corrupt political and civic leaders who were attending to the cholera patients they would have paid themselves hefty salaries claiming that the nature of the work done is very very risky.Selfish leaders.

    Please let those people be help to stay out that danger. God stretch your hand onto them. All of you get well sooner

    Government we don’t hate u we only need the good health to our people give people some wages so that they proceed with the work and this git nothing to do with politics cause we’re talking about life and not 2021 elections.
