Patients travel 60km for x-ray services in Mangochi

Patients seeking x-ray services at Mangochi district hospital are now forced to travel 60km to Monkey Bay following the unavailability of chemicals for the exercise as well as the renovation of a room where the x-ray machine is placed.

Mangochi District Hospital has suspended x-ray services

Many patients are expressing worry that they are incurring extra expenses on transport to and from Monkey Bay health centre which they said is now overwhelmed with the patients.

They say the x-ray machine at the district hospital has not been working for two months or so now.

Hospital publicist Harold Kabuluzi confirmed the x-ray services are temporarily suspended at the district hospital.

He said the room where the x-ray machine is placed is undergoing renovation.

“I think it will take another month for the renovations to complete. We want to place a high-tech x-ray machine which will be faster than the current one,” he said.

He said results of the ex-ray would be sent direct to the doctors’ computers instead of the current position when patients take the results to doctors.

Where in Africa can a patient travel 60 KM for x-ray services and yet,Muthalika and his dupes spend millions of KWACHA in buying expensive motor vehicles for their own interests.Mind you,this includes hiring private JETS to the USA for useless matters.Malawians,to stop such waste of peoples’ resources,Malawians must not vote for DPP in 2019.Muthalika has completely failed to lead our country and giving him another opportunity,this could be the end of our country economically and politically.As I many times say, Peter and his rogue brother Bingu,came to Malawi to destroy its resources and them enjoy decent life on peoples funds.Malawians,time… Read more »
