Few hours after State Vice President’s visit to Mponela Rural Hospital, government has directed that the beds that were snatched at midnight be returned from Mzimba where they were sent.
Veep Khumbo Kachali, earlier visited the hospital and demanded for a report on the circumstances that led to transfer of beds from the Mponela facility to Mzimba hospitals. Coincidentally, Rt. Honorable Kachali comes from the same district. Further, two constituencies in this district will be going to the parliamentary bye-elections
The bed snatching scandal, attracted angry condemning from all angles amongst them the women parliamentarians who demanded that the beds be returned to Dowa in 24 hrs. Peoples Transformation Party (PETRA) also weighed in on this saga.
