Malawi MPs take Ebola issue head on during first meet

LILONGWE (MaraviPost) — Malawi legislators Monday took the issue of Ebola disease head-on, bombarding the health minister Jean Kalirani with questions on how capable government is to contain the disease.

While some legislators sympathised with government on meagre resources that have been allocated towards the management of the virus, others blamed government for not doing enough.

Chitipa Wenya parliamentarian Godfrey Munkhondya asked Kalirani on whether Malawi is engaging other countries on the matter considering the fact that the issue is not only becoming a regional issue in Africa but also continental.

“Is your Ministry doing anything on the matter as far as liaising with other countries is concerned on Ebola,” asked Munkhondya.

Kalirani said efforts have been made so far on the same adding that regional meetings “on SADC level have been made.”

She added: “We’ve sent three doctors for training of trainers (ToT), and more is going to be done.”

Ebola has been declared a national disaster in most West African countries, but most Malawians are in the dark on how the virus spreads and can be contained.
