I write to register my displeasure in the way PF government is running down health standards in the country. I heavily supported this party which promised that health among others will be improved in the country.
Today I visited my in-law at Kanyama clinic and what I saw made me shed tears, long long queues for patients waiting to be attended to.
And I was told it is everyday. Just a few months ago at Chingwere clinic I lost my mother when she was taken there around 20 hrs.
Just after two hours she passed on. We did not find any doctor, not even a clinical officer but we found a male nurse who I mistook as a doctor and foolishly enough when I took my mother there at night I called him doctor and only to discover when I returned to get the death certificate in the morning that he was a male nurse.
Again maternity ward at UTH is the same condition, I found several pregnant women sharing mattresses on the floor.
One mattress was taking three pregnant women. Same at UTH filter clinic. My question, is there a need of voting?????
Bwalya. Attached is kanyama clinic patients.
