The Opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has called for curative measures at the Ministry of Health.
MDC Media Director Thabo Kawana noted that the firing of Dr. Chilufya alone is not enough to deal with the issues the MOH is facing with regards to operations and administration.
“The Ministry of Health requires curative measures because that Ministry has been problematic even from the days of President Mwanawasa,” Mr. Kawana stated.
He further called on the head of state to carry out a complete clean up of the ministry if it is to achieve its intended purposes and get rid of all corrupt activities.
He added: “It is not enough to just get rid of the Minister, there is need to make sure that you clean up the institution from bottom going up. For as long as you don’t change them even the new people that you take there get orientated into the system of corruption and in the end they find themselves in a corrupt arrangement.”
