DIALYSIS SCANDAL AT UTH AN EXAMPLE OF PF POOR SPENDING PRIORITIES.We are saddened by revelations that the University Teaching Hospital (UTH), has run out of life-saving consumables required by patients in need of dialysis support.We are especially horrified at reports that the contract in respect of the supply of renal consumables was terminated in November 2020, after the Patriotic Front (PF) government failed to make payments on this particular contract.Zambians are reminded, that the PF government spends more money on procuring military hardware and associated military contracts while spending meagre amounts of money on public healthcare – a situation that effectively sentences thousands of poor citizens to death.A recent example is the reckless splashing of over $200m of debt money on surveillance equipment designed to sabotage our democracy, instead of prioritizing investments in public healthcare so that citizens are able to access all manner of life-saving treatment in our public health institutions.The UPND is promising Zambians, that under our administration, healthcare will be a priority sector and we shall work towards building a public healthcare system which shall become the pillar of our national human development endeavors.
