Minister of Health and Vice-President of the Republic of Malawi, I would do something about the ongoing strike by some medical personnel at Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH), which is affecting lives of many Malawians.
If I were Bwana Kachali I would realise that death of people as a result of a strike, is a cause for concern.
Â Yes, it is important that I should be seen attending to my boss-President Joyce Banda’s functions-such as the installation of Paramount Chief Kyungu in Karonga, but I would realise that issues threatening lives of people need immediate attention.
Â Oh yes! How I wish I were Right Honourable Khumbo Kachali; MP, because I would appreciate that the issue needs governmentâ€™s attention.
Â If I were the Minister responsible for Health who also happens to be the country’s Veep, I would realise that when patients are stranded to the effect of lying on the floor due to lack of attention, then something is terribly wrong.Â Â
Â Â Â That is of course if I were Right Hon. Kachali, unfortunately I am not him. I am a mere scribe!
