On his arrival through Kamuzu International Airport, the QECH referral chair was welcomed by Malawi’s Egyptian Ambassador, Maher El-Adawy, who appreciated  Nyirenda’s educative visit to his country.

“We are one Africa and I am very happy that you had a wonderful stay in Egypt,” said El-Adawy who further emphasised on the vitality of inter-country good relations.

Some comments have factual errors. Some of the people do not know Dr. Cooper Nyirenda. Dr. Nyirenda was once a personal physician for Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda before Dr. H. Ntaba. He was not trained in Zimbabwe. All these are complete lies about this man. Of course he is old and he says it. In his own words, he says ndachekura. But let us celebrate our elderly people than despising them. Countries that have done better in life celebrate and cherishes their elderly men.

I think someone is being too ambitious here! If the country cannot afford medicine in the hospital, no reliable water and electricity,maybe only one or two can it manage to attend to all it’s citizens! You just are feeling jealous of Dr Cooper but am telling you ten of the young brains that are making noise now, cannot match this guy! I bet if Dr Wilima was in the public sector you would be baying for his blood. A relation had a brain tumour and he had been going to “these young doctors” for medication and he was always diagnised… Read more »

Totally agree with comment number 1. The mentality among Our leaders is pathetic. How can we develop our own infrastructure with this kind of thinking. These retards only think of themselves. Do we even have the forex to refer each and every patient to Egypt? When are we going aspire to have the best health facilities to even attract patients from other countries and earn forex in the process? We are too brain washed to think beyond our noses. This disease of thinking that everything foreign is better is killing creativity. No wonder we even import toothpicks. Shame!!

Cooper was trained in Zimbabwe, why not recommend the country that trained you? And we should refer when we have British doctors and Malawi doctors running the dialysis unit at QECH? I agree with Ree, this old man has no idea how to promote health care in QECH, he has served his nation let him reture and let the young men run the show. Colonial mentality always in Black mans mind. And dont trust Arab Egypt, they are interested in your water, next they will ask for a share from Lake Malawi through Tanzania. Why you think tanzania with lake… Read more »
