In what can be described as a ‘Good Samaritan turning belligerent’, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) MP for Rumphi North Tasokwa Msiska fought with health workers in the emergence department of Mzuzu Central Hospital after they declined to give him chlorine to wash his car.
Msiska, a former Regional Education Manager for the north, who was coming from Lilongwe enroute to his constituency picked a Mzuzu based Police Constable only named Likambale, who was involved in a serious road traffic accident on the Lilongwe – Mzuzu M1 road.
Sources told Nyasa Times that after dropping the injured person, Msiska demanded that the health workers leave the injured person and give him Chlorine to wash his car since it had a lot of blood.
But the three health technician, who are interns and new at the hospital told him point blank that they needed to attend to the injured patient first .
Msiska could not take this lying down and started shouting obscenities.
He grabbed one ad did “a Kalinde” on him until another health worker intervened.
But Msiska turned to the one who intervened and wanted to slap him but more health workers came and stopped the altercation.
Msiska then called the Mzuzu Central Hospital director Rose Mkandawire, who cooled him down and later arranged that his car be cleaned with Chlorine.
Both Mkandawire and Msiska refused to speak to Nyasa Times when called to comment on the matter.
