A youth health civil society has asked the ministry of Health to transfer five top management at Bwaila Hospital in Lilongwe on fraud and corruption allegations.
In a letter to the ministry of Health principal secretary, board chair of Youth Health Network, Charles Kapichi alleges the district health officer Dr M. Mwale of gross mismanagement.
“Payment made to garages for maintenance of vehicles which were in actual fact not repaired, theft of drugs and nutrious food (chiponde) by senior officers,” says the letter in part.
Kapichi, in the letter asks for forced transfer of Dr Mwale, district medical officer Dr A Chauma, principal administrator Mrs Chiona, deputy district environmental officer Mrs V Jeremiah and nurse/youth friendly health coordinator Mrs A Kachigamba.
“We are also very optimistic and grateful that your good office will call us as soon as possible. Failing to do so within the period stated, the Youth Health Network will mobilise all youth, health workers and other stakeholders in Lilongwe district to stage the peaceful mass demonstrations to force the ministry of Health to address the problems raised.”
Dr Mwale refused to comment on the allegations.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
