The Ministry of Health and Social Services is working diligently to address a water supply issue at Sibbinda Health Centre in Katima Mulilo.

The Executive Director in the Ministry of Health and Social Services, Ben Nangombe, said this while responding to concerns raised by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Gender Equality, Social Development, and Family Affairs.

The committee is in the Zambezi Region to assess the conditions and operations at public health facilities.

Nangombe says the booster pump that transfers water between tanks one and two is currently out of order, resulting in decreased water pressure at the clinic.

Technical challenges related to the Rundu Regional Medical Store's cooling system are also being expedited.

Ben Nangombe further urged officials in the region to remain conscious of the needs of health facilities and to act promptly on requests for medical supplies.
