Beatific Gumbwanda
CHIKOMBEDZI- It never rains but pours for Chikombedzi Hospital whose problems continue piling up with the most recent one being a lawsuit by Zesa through which the power utility is demanding in excess of $120 000 in unpaid bills.
The Free Methodist hospital established in the 1970s is faced with a myriad of problems ranging from dilapidated infrastructure to serious financial constraints and is on the verge of collapse.
The hospital has not been paying its electricity bill for a long time prompting Zesa to take legal action so as to recover the money owed to them.
Matron Ruth Hlongwane told a delegation led by Chiredzi South legislator Kalisto Gwanetsa that the hospital was crumbling down and they recently received a $120 000 lawsuit from Zesa over unpaid bills.
“We have a lot of problems here and recently Zesa added to those problems by suing us for $120 000 in unpaid bills.
“The government had promised to pay but they have not done so and we plead with them to come to our rescue,” said Hlongwane.
Gwanetsa said he would bring the problem to government’s attention so that the people of Chikombedzi will get better care at their hospital.
“I have heard of the challenges and will lobby the government to act quickly and bail out this institution because it is in a sorry state,” said Gwanetsa.
Chikombedzi Hospital has no functioning ambulance, no running water, defunct mortuary and cannot provide proper meals for patients who are said to be solely eating cabbages.
