By Thandie Chadzandiyani

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Minister of Health Khumbize Kandondo Chiponda says the ministry is investigating to find the actual location and the officer who used an ambulance to transfer household items as seen on a picture that is circulating on social media forums.

Chiponda says they have managed to get the ambulances’ registration number and they are working with local government to directly get information on where this happened.

“Fortunately we have the registration numbers of the ambulances and we are trying to find out through local councils the real location of this mismanagement of government resource. We are going to issue warning letters to all health facilities in the country, for them to avoid misusing properties at their facilities,” said Chiponda.

A health rights activist, George Jobe, while in support of the investigations set by the health ministry, he has also tipped the minister to consider providing transportation during transfer of it’s officers.
