Undule says Israella Bushiri’s death in Kenya shows Malawi has failed to invest in its health systems

Renowned governance, human rights campaigner Undule Mwakasungula, says the death of Israella Bushiri  – daughter to Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – while receiving treatment in Kenya should remind authorities at the Capital Hill about the urgent need and importance of investing more in ‘our health sector as a country’.

Undule: It’s time we invested and overhauled our health sector a
Mwakasungula observed that Malawi has not done much to invest and overhaul the country’s health sector despite good medical treatment being a human right.
The activist made the sentiments on Thursday in his condolence message forwarded to Bushiri and his wife, Mary, on the loss of losing their beloved daughter, Israella.
“It’s time we invested and overhauled our health sector as good medical treatment is a human right. I believe Israella did not die in vain, but sacrificed for many other unknown beloved children out there, who are suffering and dying silently from lack of proper medical treatment and attention from a similar disease Israella suffered and died from,” he said.
Mwakasungula was one of the activists who spoke against the decision by the Malawi Police Service to block the innocent child and her guardians from travelling to Kenya to seek specialized medical assistance.
Mwakasungula said refusing the daughter to seek medical help outside the country is a violation of her right to medical treatment of her choice.
He emphasized that the State had the obligation to support the right to health of Prophet Bushiri’s daughter regardless of the issues affecting the father.
Mwakasungula said it is sad that Israella’s death is coming at the time the Bushiris are going through one of their trying and difficult times as the couple is answering multiple charges in the courts.
However, he emphasized that this should not discourage Malawians from putting their trust in God, but rather stand in solidarity with the bereaved couple in prayers.
“This is the time for God-fearing and loving children to stand together with them without looking at who we are and what we believe in. This is the time to comfort and strengthen the Bushiris,” he said.
“Israella Bushiri was a shining star and an angel from heaven, therefore we should celebrate her life as she is safely in the hands of God. As Apostle Paul said in Philippians 1:21, ‘For me to live is Christ and to die is gain”. This is the message we must receive from the loss of Israella. Heaven has gained and therefore our lives should be loved to Him, through Him, for Him, with Him, about Him and everything should be about Jesus as Israella lived,” he added.

Chifukwa choti ndi mwana wa Bushiri mwati muyankhule? Anthu anayamba kudandaula in 1994 but you never talked because your uncle Kyungu was dining with Bakili and later dpp. It’s possible that if Bushiri didn’t run away from South Africa his daughter could have survived. We don’t know what she was suffering from. Was it a terminal disease that doctors could do nothing about it? RIP Israella.

Stop hating rich people. Work tf hard! Hating wont solve your sht. Your hate speeches shows it…poor mans speeches! Munthu olemera alibe nthawi yonyoza munthu kwake nkusaka. Bushiri yo anaba nyumba mwako? Anakubera chani kuti uzikhalira kutukwana iye? You hear things and you judge mercilessly upon hearsays.
The hate you put out is the hate you will recieve back, This is the law of attraction.

[spoiler title=”INDEED WE HAVE POOR HOSPITALS”] Malawi after so many years of independence has concentrated much in cash gate rather developing the nation. Up to now we don’t have good roads to match the international standard, we don’t have international Bus stands, we don’t have public bus services like those in international standard, Uber Taxi Services are in almost every country with the cheapest rates of fairs but are not found in Malawi. We don’t have good health facilities that can match the international standards, what we know is stealing from public coffers. We don’t dream of having good things… Read more »

Ginimbi, the illuminate, the likes of Bushiri

A Undule ndi inu nomwe mwalawa za ka mbava aka mwazunguzika nazo mutu, tiziti inuyo ndi mphawi otheratu kufika poyaluka chonchi kapena uchidzete chabe wa mmutu? Did you find out what the daughter of the bandit was suffering from, what if the sickness was incurable, will you still blame the health sector? Shame on you old man and for your little crook Bushiri, just give it little time, he will get all what is coming to him justly

Inutu a Ginimbi, osaonetsa kuchejera apa and death is a very painful encounter which brings tears to everyone. The child was innocent and even her parents, haven’t been proven guilty.

My thought on Undules comment would not be pointing to the Government as such, but i think the passing of the Girl should also tell us that no any amount of money can buy life. By the way as many has said, we have lost so many kids in our Hospitals and Mwakasungula knows, why to speak on this one only? any way thank you.
