Speaking in an interview with MBC Ngwenyama said there will no longer be deaths of expectant mothers when giving birth in his constituency once he is elected into office.
Ngwenyama assured constituents that he will improve health of expectant mothers so that no woman dies when giving birth. The DPP aspiring candidate said this will happen in a way that he will construct clinics around his constituency with better health facilities.
"Maternal death is really a problem in my constituency, so in addition to construction of clinics, I will as well civic educate expectant mothers to visit a health facility as early as they notice signs of labour pains and avoid resistance, " said Ngwenyama.
Asked on what he will do in terms of water sanitation, the aspiring legislator for the ruling DPP said water is life, as such, he will put a lot of boreholes and piped water very close in each village of his constituency with an aim of minimizing long distances that women and girls walk in search of potable water.
He also added that he will make efforts to civic educate communities on how they can repair the boreholes and taps when they malfunction so that it should not take long time to start working again.
