Govt To probe Selling of Oxygen Cylinders In Mzuzu


Government has launched an investigation into reports that some health workers at Kamuzu Central Hospital in Lilongwe are selling oxygen cylinders to some people for their personal use at home.

Recently, the social media has been awash with reports that some health workers at Kamuzu Central Hospital are stealing the cylinders for trade.

While confirming receiving such complaints, Khumbize Chiponda, Minister of Health, has said that in, they have started investigating the matter.

Chiponda has since described the conduct as unfortunate since the cylinders are already inadequate in the country.

With this, she has asked Malawians to embrace the spirit of patriotism saying such malpractices should not been condoned and must be reported.

“This is a period of need and as such we need collective support in fighting against the pandemic which has affected the country. We have now started to go to the bottom of such reports” said Chiponda.

So far, there are about 11 thousand active infections while deaths have over the last few weeks swelled to over 500.

In total, 6 thousand people have recovered.

Slightly less than 20 thousand infections have been recorded since the first case was registered in March last year.
