State House has received a report on the cause of the power failure which affected the country’s biggest referral hospital, the University Teaching Hospital (UTH).
Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda told Journalists at state house today that last evening President Edgar Lungu received the report of the enquiry from the Minister of Health Dr. Chitalu Chilufya.
Mr. Chanda could however not disclose the details contained in the report but acknowledged that measures are being taken to address the cause of the power failure.
The President’s Spokesperson said the Minister of Health is expected to issue a ministerial statement in Parliament this afternoon so that the whole country is aware of what transpired at UTH.
President Lungu ordered a prompt inquiry into the power supply failure at UTH on Sunday directing the Ministers of Health and Energy to carry out an investigation into the circumstances that led to the incident.
