2021 Lusaka Central Aspiring Parliamentary candidate Mulambo Haimbe says women in the communities need more support to fight COVID-19 pandemic.
Mr Haimbe said this after touring his constituency were he engaged leaders to find out areas needing help amidst COVID-19 pandemic.
“Together with other leaders we discussed what we need to breakdown the transmission of COVID-19 in our constituency so that together we mobilise and facilitate what is needed for our people to comply with measures as guided by WHO and our health experts.” said Mr Haimbe.
He discovered that with more support women can help communities comply with measures to prevent COVID-19 because they are custodians of families thereby serving as front liners.
Mr Haimbe says that he is assured that women once educated on COVID-19 and equipped with resources such as sanitisers and masks can help save their families from the deadly pandemic.
Mr Haimbe who was accompanied by Lubwa ward aspiring councillor Clement Milonga visited a freedom fighter who also serves as Chairlady of woodlands extension branch to provide guidance on the launch of a new branch in the ward.
He expressed happiness at the support he was receiving and the rapid growth of the Party in his constituency.
“We are united and working together with everyone to build a safe and health community as guided by our credible President Hakainde Hichilema.” said Mr Haimbe.
He thanked President Hichilema for taking the lead in showing unity in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic and pledged to continue supporting the community through sensitisation and distribution of hygiene and sanitation products in his constituency.
