Minister of Education, Science and Technology, William Susuwele-Banda said he is satisfied with  the system put in place at Dedza Border to screen travellers.

The minister spoke this on Monday when he toured the border post for Malawi and Mozambique.

Banda also expressed satisfaction with the state of preparedness and commitment by staff at Dedza Border Post in the prevention and management of coronavirus.

“I came here to appreciate operations at the border in response to what the government wants to be happening. I am very impressed to find that we have committed staff here and also that the system that they have put in place is working flawlessly in that they are able to screen everyone who comes through the border with no room for loopholes,” he said.

He added that at the border no one gets cleared by Immigration or MRA without a go ahead from healthy personnel and this forces everyone to go through healthy checks in addition to the border being well secured.

In her remarks, Director of Health and Social Services for Dedza District Hospital, Dr. Regina Chimenya asked for more health personnel to help in the screening process.
