Health workers at Lusaka’s Kanyama Clinic have downed tools demanding to be addressed by Lusaka District Health Medical team over violent acts by some members of the public.

On Saturday, irate members of the public attacked health personnel at the clinic demanding to be attended to and in the process broke two doors and some window panes.
