Speaking during the function, Bisnowaty urged health officials to screen each and every one coming from Mozambique side.

Bisnowaty said. Malawi will stand to lose a lot of business if one person can be detected with Ebola and the economy will collapse.

“My coming here is to compliment government efforts to prevent Ebola case. I am happy with the government response so far,” said the parliamentarian.

Bisnowaty has been a staunch Malawian campaigner against Ebola.

On 7 August, 2014, he donated the testing kits at Kamuzu International Airport (Kia) so that that the health officials are able to identify potential sick people entering the country through the airport.

Speaking after receiving the donation, Dedza Port Health Officer, Moses Josua, commended Bisnowaty.

“Before this equipment, we were not doing any screening but now we will be very active.”

Meanwhile, Bisnowaty has pledged to reach to all the boarders using money from his personal account.

Ebola has killed many people in Liberia and other parts of the Western African States.

Meanwhile, Ministry of health spokesperson has announced that Malawi needs more that ‘K200 Million to prepare for the disease.
