Robert Mugabe Clinic Reopens To The Public

The Namibia government has directed that the Robert Mugabe Clinic in Windhoek be closed and all health workers should vacate the premises by Sunday, to the pave way for its reopening to members of the public.

Workers at the COVID-19 testing centre have been accommodated by the Ministry of Health and Social Services since March due to their high risk of getting infected, and to avoid taking the virus home.

In a letter on Thursday, Khomas regional health director Patemoshela Hamunyela said staff were to move back home. She wrote:

All healthcare workers accommodated in hotels, guest houses and lodges should vacate these places by 13 September 2020.

A nurse at the clinic, who chose to remain anonymous, told The Namibian that staff members feel the move is a cost-saving strategy by the ministry.

The nurse added that it was not right to send them a two-day notice to vacate and go back home as this raised the risk of infection.

The clinic reopened its doors to the public at around 10 AM.
