Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) president Nelson Chamisa says he is heartbroken after visiting Harare Hospital, describing the state of affairs at the country’s medical institutions as death traps.
“Our hospitals are terribly sick…I’m so heartbroken after I visited Harare hospital yesterday. Our hospitals are death traps. No electricity & water for days, no medicine & no machines. I hear it’s the same at Mpilo, Pari & all other hospitals.
“We’re ready to the inadequate & improper food, the worn out linen, the dilapidated beds and the general decay of the infrastructure! We must unite to save our beautiful Zimbabwe. We are not poor. We have poor leadership and poor priorities!”
