Deputy Minister of Defense has revealed that a site for construction of Military Referral Hospital has been identified.
The minister responsible Jean Sendeza made the revelation on Tuesday when she met the state vice president Saulos Chilima.
According to Sendeza, the land for the hospital has been identified in Lilongwe, Area 35.
Commenting on the matter, Chilima said there is a need for commercializing the Malawi Defense Force (MDF) and establishment of the Military Hospital is one of the process.
Chilima further said that he told the minister to prioritize the construction of the hospital since it is five years behind the schedule.
â€śI quickly suggested to the Minister that the hospital should be a priority because it has been five years behind schedule. And I am glad that the Minister reported that land has already been identified in Area 35 in Lilongwe,â€ť Chilima said.
The vice president further said that the hospital once finalized will provide health services to Malawians and help government to save forex on foreign medical referrals.
