On Saturday, the mission hospital organized prayer and fasting session at Kalungulu Mountain in the area to cry unto the Lord to intervene in their situation.

Speaking in an interview, Dr Kondwani Zgambo said the hospital is sinking as it cannot offer important services such neonatal, primary health care and maternal care because of the financial challenges at hand.

Zgambo said: “Embangweni hospital is about to sink as we cannot run normal services at the hospital due to financial problems we are experiencing. We owe different suppliers of about MK32million and is very painful to doctors and Nurses working at this hospital.

“For six months the hospital has undergone different challenges, such as babies dying because of inadequate care, mothers delivering on the way because we have not done much to prevent such scenarios from happening.

Zgambo said it is this reason the hospital decided to organize prayer and fasting service at Kalungulu Mountain to cry unto the Lord to intervene in the situation, as they need over MK40million to run normally.

Dr Zgambo further said apart from other services, the hospital has no running ambulances which can help in terms of emergency situation or in referrals, and call upon well-wishers to bail them out of the situation.

The hospital serves the population of about 55,000 in Mzimba South.

Hospital Chaplain, Rev Kenwood Nyondo said the situation needs God to intervene spiritually apart from other help.

Church-based institutions are being mismanaged big time in this country. For example, Mangochi Dioces closed St Johns Major Seminary cause of failure to manage. The Catholic church has closed Kachebere cause of poor management. And now we hear of a CCAP hospital praying for 32Million Kwacha debt or else face closure,….. again due to maladministration. AND YET….. These churches are always in the fore front pointing fingers at Government saying it is failing to manage its institutions….Really? If you are failing to run a hospital, do you think it is easy to run a country? Where do these churches get… Read more »

Almost all Hospitals, just like Embangweni, are in need of such help for them to serve our brothers and sisters who visit such facilities for medical help. It is my sincere prayer the Lord will definately help and save the situations.

One wonders what has become of the fiscal management at this hospital. The hospital is one of the most expensive ones in terms of service provision and patients are remanded in the wards until they pay. This means there is no debt to patients. Look at the catchment area, the health centres under Embangweni Hospital, all pouring money to the mother hospital, even people from Zambia too are using accessing the same health facilities, and you owe suppliers and you pray and fast for relief? There is no miracle money to bail you out, just paly your cards well because… Read more »
