Ministry of Health  interdicts officers over mattress saga at Chikwawa hospital

Ministry of Health (MOH) has with immediate effect interdicted two senior officers for allegedly stealing 28 mattresses at Chikwawa District Hospital (DHO).

Malango: we have decided to interdict them

The officers who were critical to the Hospitals operations are currently answering theft charges by public servant.

The Ministry’s Spokesperson, Joshua Malango, said the suspects are hospital’s administrator, Mosses Jere and Stores Clerk, Clement Kapesi.

“I can confirm to you that Mr. Jere and Mr. Kapesi were implicated in the theft scandal of mattresses at Chikwawa DHO. And as a responsible Ministry we have decided to interdict them waiting for the outcome of the case,” said Malango.

He said the Ministry is further investigating 13 staff members who were also implicated in the matter and that if results show that they played a role in the deal, they would also face justice.

Malango said in order to pave way for objective investigation, the Ministry has so far posted a new DHO to Chikwawa.

Atumbuka kuchoka ku mpoto kumakaba mattress ku Chikwawa asena odwala azigona basi, azipita kwawo kamuzu samalakwisa! Kwao angapange choncho?


I have seen staff stealing mattresses from hospitals and all the time claiming to be God fearing people. May God punish you for using his name to hide your evil deeds! It seems everyone in Malawi exits on stolen money and goods and have the audacity to say God has blessed them. Really? Shame on you. God is watching.
