State Vice president Khumbo Kachali this afternoon made a stopover at Mponela Rural Hospital few days after the controversial midnight bed snatching incident by health ministry officials.
Veep demanded 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 vice president is expected to respond to the call made by the community who are demanding their beds back. Kachali maintains that he was not involved in the transfer of the beds.
When he arrived, the vice president met acting hospital administrator Buthelezi Mvula who took him to the hospital warehouse where he saw over 21 beds in stock. He proceeded to visit women wards before his departure. His visit lasted approximately less than an hour.
His visit comes after several people have condemned the transferring of beds at the hospital.
