‘Deputy Health Minister Bought Non-usable Hospital Equipment From India’, – Doctors

Deputy Health and Child Care Minister Chamunorwa Mangwiro has been implicated in the procurement of non-usable equipment for the country’s public hospitals from India.

Senior public hospital doctors told a Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Health and Child Care on Monday that the equipment was bought from a company called Norula Exports based in New Delhi, but with no brand names for the manufacturer. Dr Bothwell Anesu Mbuvayesango said:

What happened with the Indian consignment was that Dr Mangwiro called a member of the Department of Surgery and telling him he was going to India to buy equipment.

Maybe he was in the departure lounge, but the member declined and told him that this was not the way how things were done.

Some people (hospital staff) alleged they got images on WhatsApp from the Minister asking whether the equipment shown on WhatsApp was the correct one.

President of the Senior Hospitals Doctors Association (SHDA), Shingai Nyaguse added that company representatives from the Indian equipment provider later came into the country but they failed to make the equipment work.
