I am for “Ukufutikila” says new health minister


RECENTLY appointed health minister Dr Jonas Chanda says he is not against ukufutikila.

In a statement to clarify a ZNBC story that said the minsiter was opposed to ukufutikila, Dr Chanda he had been misquoted.

“ZNBC TV 19:00hrs main news has carried a story where they reported me as asking Zambians to ignore local traditional methods like Hot steaming (“Ukufutikila”), in addition to the 5 golden public health guidelines on Covid prevention,” the minister stated.

“In my media address at Maina Soko which was live-streamed, I was very clear and categorical that Zambians should also use local traditional remedies like “Ukufutikila” which I also use, in ADDITION to the 5 golden rules of Covid-19 prevention,” he added.

Dr Chanda said he had since called the ZNBC Director General Malolela Lusambo to correct that misrepresentation with an apology.

“I also appeal to the Media to be professional, ethical and factual in their reporting, and to go back to the live-streamed briefing if they are not clear,” stated Dr Chanda.
