DEMOCRACY FOSTERED, DOWA CONSTITUENCY MOBILE CLINICS A WAY FORWARD

11

Hon Kawale: We do mobile clinics to meet the medical needs of people in my constituency. The government says its strained with resources in the health sector, as a result, people are suffering. I strongly believe that, no development can happen at family, village, constituency, district and national level if people are sick. We need a healthy nation.

This weekend our reporter, Gerrard Mzaza Nkhata had a chance to catch up with the ever busy Member Of Parliament for Dowa North East Constituency Honourable Sam Kawale. Both in his constituency and parliament the vibrate youthful politician has been busy trying to get somewhere so a long weekend was a better time.

Afriem: The ever busy Hon Sam Dalitso Kawale. Hope you were free this long weekend. What has kept going away from politics?

Hon Kawale: My long weekend was not dropped in a drain. I spent my time in the constituency.

Afriem: Relaxing with constituents, resting, that’s nice.

Hon Kawale: It was nice, but it was not resting. On Saturday morning, I was in Mkwanthama village where we had a mobile medical clinic. This was the second clinic of the year. Mkwanthama is a heavily populated community. On our arrival, over a hundred people were already waiting for us.

Afriem: Are we allowed to know the result, and how do you help those positive?

Hon Kawale: You are allowed to know the late but not the names. At the end of the day, 540 were seen. Out of those, 47 were tested for HIV by our councillors, 1 tested positive and the rest negative. We are plugging him into our HIV support group in the constituency.

Afriem: Dr Chakwera says MCP is very democratic. Are you upholding democracy too?

Hon Kawale: As the clinic was happening, I drove about half an hour away to meet party officials at Ndunje primary school. 20 Area committees gathered to get an update of what has happened in the constituency. A detailed update of constituency development activities, as well as party activities were given. At the end of the meeting, each person received a constituency newsletter to read and share the information with other people.

Afriem: Wow, very democratic and good that you are involving your committees. So after Saturday you rested today?

Hon Kawale: On monday, may 1, similar activities took place as follows: Mobile medical clinic at Mkanga Primary school and a political party meeting took place 2 hours away at Matekenya for a political constituency surgery where 23 areas showed up. Though it was mainly to hear their needs with Party and development issues covered. Constituency newsletter, Badges and armbands were given to everyone. Every woman received party cloth too.

Afriem: But why do you do these Medical Mobile Clinics?

Hon Kawale: We do mobile clinics to meet the medical needs of people in my constituency. The government says its strained with resources in the health sector, as a result, people are suffering. I strongly believe that, no development can happen at family, village, constituency, district and national level if people are sick. We need a healthy nation.

As for party meetings, I believe communication is not on the best way to build any society. Communication is not only vital when things are good, but also when things aren’t working. That is why I take time to talk about good things and challenges the party, the country is facing, development and challenges the constituency is facing, as well as ask them for an honest feedback on how we are serving. As a leader, I must seek constructive criticism and not praise. I can only get better if I am told what I need to improve.

Leaders never cease to learn. I need to learn.

    why go to clinics in party regalia?
