Blantyre  DHO clarifies on discriminatory all Asian vaccine time

The Blantyre District Health Office (DHO) says it has not designated any private health facility as a vaccination centre.

DHO’s director of health and social services Dr Gift Kawalazira: Only government and CHAM health facilities are the designated vaccination centres.

The office is clarifying a message circulating in social media concerning the Covid-19 vaccination at a private clinic, Malmed in Blantyre.

The message apparently from the Asian Community suggested that members of the Asian/Indian community had organised “a hassle-free vaccination exercise” at Malmed Clinic where members of the Asian/Indian community were to be served first before anyone else and that the Asian community would cater for the health workers’ allowances.

However, the Blantyre DHO in a statement signed by the Director for Health and Social Services, Dr. Gift Kawalazira, says only government and CHAM health facilities are the designated vaccination centres.

The Blantyre DHO has further assured the public that it has adequate vaccine stocks for those who need it and that people should not panic. Vaccination starts on Monday 22, 2021 in the following health centres:Gateway, Limbe, Mlambe, Lirangwe, Mpemba, Ndirande,, Chilomoni, Zingwangwa, Chileka and Kadidi.

Hey guys let us have a mature conversation and a sense of proportionality on this issue. Clearly a rogue grouping of malawians Asian descend with the aiding of a rougue group of malawians of African descend made this unfortunate illegal arrangement. It is wrong to blanket all Asian malawians with the same tag as majority of law abiding ones didn’t know neither were they party to this arrangement. I believe most are just as disgusted and unhappy with the development. We need to rise above the race baiting and have a civilized conversation. We are all malawians regardless of race… Read more »

The Problem is the racial discrimination, you can’t say Asians will be given priority whilst black Malawians wait for their turn as if they are second class citizens. There are some other elite clinics who are offering vaccination for their elite clients, but race doesn’t come into it. The problem is some of these asians grow up believing in their caste systems imported from India where discrimination even amongst themselves is part of their culture, and they have happily incorporated all African Malawians to be at the bottom of their caste system, even below their own lowest of the low… Read more »

Asians are the worst racists. They also think they are a super race forgetting that they are just too poor in their home country. They could be good at business and technology but they are just bad people. They lock up their wives so that they don’t meet us out here. If you go to Durban, amwene are all over mixing with people and doing what other people do. This is where I met an India you girl who fix my car. She was an auto-electrician. Come here they want first class treatment. If they want their own vaccine, why… Read more »

This is not a clarification at all. There is more to it than the refutation being made here and I think the DHO should be investigated by the appropriate authority for possible kickbacks.

This is not clarification at all. This is damage control and a cover up. The letter from the DHO never denied that such an arrangement was made; indeed, the Asian Association of Maravi, a grouping claiming to be an umbrella body encompassing “most Asian institutions in Malawi”, has just “categorically” condemned the act, hence implicitly acknowledging that the shenanigans indeed did take place. I think the DHO’s Director of Health and Social Services should be investigated by the ACB, as well as the ombudsman. We simply can’t afford to have a kapirikoni in these strategic positions. There are worse than… Read more »
