An inmate has died without being attended to by the medical personnel at Kamuzu Central Referral Hospital on Saturday, July 10,  FaceofMalawi can confirm.

The deceased inmate identified as Moses Banda was admitted at KCH upon falling ill from Maula prison.

Unconfirmed reports indicate that late Banda was on 15 years jail term until his death without attended at the hospital on Sunday, morning.

An inside source who opted for anonymity told FaceofMalawi that on Sunday evening,  the late Banda died without any prison warder in attendance.

The source added that the only treatment was just a drip of water the deceased received.

“No-one in ward 4B, room 3; where the convict and deceased got admitted, knows not of his crime. What has, however, dismayed everyone, patients and guardians likewise were how the deceased was neglected, both by Prison authorities; two prison officers who were assisting to take care of the convict, now deceased.

“They never made any effort to ensure that the deceased has eaten, which is to collect good on his behalf and assist him to eat. The only care they rendered was to provide him a plate, cup, and blankets,” discloses the source.

He added, “After we noticed that the inmate is dead, we alerted hospital authorities who were unwilling to attend to the dead body. Eventually, with other patients’ guardians, we carried the dead body to the mortuary. We did all this without prison warders”.

Both Prison and Kamuzu Central Hospital refused to comment on the matters as we went to press.
