Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko has condemned corruption at public
referral hospitals which has resulted in hospital pharmacies being
sabotaged to create business for privately owned pharmacies being set up
at hospital premises.
Speaking during the handover of chicks to Bulawayo residents at Pumula suburb, Vice President Mphoko said it is unfair for some hospital executives to enrich themselves by setting up private pharmacies at the expense of struggling patients.
“Imali etshontshiweyo ayibusisekanga (stolen money is not blessed). There are thieves in our hospitals for instance Mpilo, UBH and Ingutsheni, professional thieves who are protected by law.
