Ntcheu Hospitals rebuffs MCP to cheer the sick

Ntcheu district hospital administration has rebuffed main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) to visit the hospital in order to cheer the sick.

A letter from health services manager to the district chairman says the rejection is for the interest of patients’ welfare.

“We regret to inform you that Ntcheu district hospital cannot accommodate your request this time in the interest of patients welfare,” says the letter in part.

The letter further advises the party to go through the district commissioner’s office with such requests.

There was no immediate comment from the MCP but ironically, the Peoples Party-led government refused permission to United Democratic Front (UDF) president Atupele Muluzi now minister of Health who had wanted to give a cash donation to Kamuzu central hospital in the run up to the 2014 elections.

He complained bitterly in the media that this was unfair saying as a Malawian he wanted to help a financially struggling hospital but the government said this was politicization of public health services.

Umunthu unasowapo apa, DHO stop being used by DPP govt, opani Mulungu pogwira ntchito. In public hospitals patients and guardians lack alot of neccesities like soap, so why denying them free items when you are failing to provide for them. You are there today with all luxuries while patients are starving because of poor DPP maladministration, think of the needy before you speak,

Maybe all the patients belong to the ruling party, but they will also place the blame on their party for denying them the offer by MCP. Just wait until they get better and they get discharged, they will lodge their votes elsewhere come 21 May.

At the far end of this politicking it is the poor people that are suffering.

They are fearing for their dear jobs. Who wants to be jobless after all?
Politically, the response is true, DC must approve receipt of such donations, otherwise mmmmm people may be sacked/lose jobs/ transferred. There is this saying” when elephants are fighting, grass suffers”.
