“Zimbabwe Used To Have Patients From Outside”, ED Speaks On State Of Hospitals

President Mnangagwa has lamented the state of local hospitals saying that patients from other countries used to come in for treatment.

He was responding to a listener’s question on who had expressed concern over the state of local hospitals. Speaking during a Capitalk 100.4 radio programme dubbed “Catching Up With ED” Mnangagwa said that there are plans to revive the health sector.

He said that he recently met with doctors who narrated their grievances to him. He also said that the cost of medical equipment and drug supplies in some traditional suppliers was exacerbating the crises.

The president said that the government has since started looking for other suppliers of medical needs and India is one of the potential partners.

The Zimbabwean health sector is currently in a sorry state. Workers have also lamented over the working conditions which they say put their lives in danger. Ironically, the government has not been prioritising that sector when budget allocations are made.

  1. That should be temporary solution. We look forward to the state for revival of our drug industries. Caps pharmanova etc. Our government must buy shares or a big stake and make these companies work for our people
    India option can only come at the cost of our job market. Please Mt President our pharmaceutical industries first. Build our capacity
