Bulawayo City Council has a depleted fleet of ambulances, which is making it difficult to serve all the 21 clinics in the city.
This was revealed by the latest council minutes. Councillor Silas Chigora had this to say:
A total of 21 ambulances would, therefore, be required. With the current financial challenges, this was not feasible.
Currently, the city has only nine operational ambulances. Operation Florian had recently donated two ambulances and this has been appreciated.
It was also revealed that council clinics are charging residents RTGS$5 as consultation fees yet there was no medication.
