The political activist, Ali Naka, known for his criticism of poor African leadership and of the MDC leadership, has claimed that the Zimbabwean government spent US $20 million on disposal thermometers.
Using his Twitter, Ali Naka asked Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube to explain who had authorised the procurement given the critical needs of the health sector in Zimbabwe. He also included President Emmerson Mnangagwa in his request for a response.
Said Ali Naka:
Dear Mthuli Ncube, Who authorized the procurement of “Disposable” Thermometers for $20 million dollars from the Waterkloof based company in Pretoria. Terrence Mukupe, Zanu PF, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Justice Mayor Wadyajena, Can someone explain to the people of Zimbabwe?
You can smell corruption from a mile when a paralyzed National Department Of Health failing to provide bandages and panadol to the citizens makes a conceited effort to purchase “Disposable Thermometers” for $20 million dollars and the actors got entertained at the CEOs house.
Zimbabwe doesn’t need Disposable Thermometers Mthuli Ncube! Cancel the transaction. Focus.
There has been a critical shortage of medical equipment and consumables in Zimbabwe like bandages. In the week of 13 March, senior doctors in Zimbabwe staged a strike appealing to the government to prioritise the desperate needs of the public hospitals in the country.
