    These guys are so selfish, why don’t they bring our hospitals to the standards they follow abroad? Is it not an unnecessary cost to the tax payer? Mnangagwa was comfortable hiring planes for his trip and that of the former president when the rest of the people are left to attend ill equipped hospitals. Wouldn’t that money go a long way if they had the right priorities? Who is supposed to fix our hospitals?? Is it not the government? When we voice these things they set the army and police on us, so sad. I wonder what the people who still support them think about such issues. How they were brainwashed boggles the mind.
