The clinic will not only cater for police officers but also surrounding communities, according to officials.

Northern Region Police deputy public relations officer Maurice Chapola said  in an interview that the old clinic, which has since been demolished to create space for a new one, was too small for the population.

“The old clinic was usually congested. At times, patients were being referred to Mzuzu Central Hospital where they sometimes never got treatment on time because of pressure there,” he said.

According to Chapola, Press Trust has already committed K46.8 million towards the project.

He appealed for more help from well-wishers.

“The clinic will require many things, so well-wishers are still welcome to assist in cash and in kind,” he said

There are already a lot of health facilities in that city, plus some expansion of Mzuzu health centre under way. the solution for inefficiency at the existing health facilities is not everyone constructing their own clinic!
