Goodwill Ambassador for Persons with Disabilities Elijah Ngwale has called on President Hichilema to give attention to the plight of Persons Living with Disabilities.

Mr Ngwale has noted with concern that the new administration seems not to have paid attention to challenges facing persons with disabilities.

He said organizations such as The Zambia Agency for Persons with Disabilities are disorganized due to lack of funding from the central government.

“I would like to appeal to President Hichilema to give us attention as persons with Disabilities like he has done to others, since the time he resumed office he has been quite about us,” he said.

Mr Ngwale has called on the Head of State to seriously look into  the challenges the persons  with Disabilities are facing.
