Dr Magombeyi Says Zimbabwean Health System Is “A Silent Genocide”

The Acting President of the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association, Dr Peter Magombeyi has described the country’s health system as a silent genocide as several people continue to die in hospitals.

He said that scores of patients are dying in public hospitals since there inadequate resources to save their lives. Speaking to Daily Maverick, Magombeyi said:

Imagine being in a hospital that accepts all referrals, and then not having things as simple as gloves or bandages. Patients have to buy and bring their own test tubes.

Magombeyi is in South Africa where he is receiving medical attention for an undisclosed ailment which allegedly came after his abduction for spearheading a doctors’ strike over unsustainable salaries and poor working conditions.

This Tuesday marks the 51 days since the health caregivers embarked on industrial action leaving only a few doctors “on call to attend to life-threatening cases.”

  1. If you take a closer look at Munangagwa’s you will see some traits of the devil himself there

    Like he’s an evil man with obviously some occult power there’s no doubt

    He really looks scary

    One day wd will have a handsome and good looking not so bad and evil president

    This ugly Croc is not my president

  2. This is a pre meditated decision to kill all Zimbabweans so they can never vote against this government. The Ndebeles were killed to stop them voting. By economic deprivation on a grand scale, which did not occur prior to the elections , together with the drought, will ensure the people are broken. Britain has done the same to the areas that voted Labour, homelessness, hospital chaos and unemployment. It is a politicians tool to punish voters. The MDC should use their seats in parliament as the voice of the opposition not to try to reverse a decision taken by Britain and South Africas manipulation. We always were a stepping stone for their mutual greed.
    If it happens silently they think no one notices but God is watching.
