OPPOSITION leader Nelson Chamisa has castigated government over poor health delivery system and a poor road network, in perhaps a suggestion that the death of MDC member Tafadzwa Mundwa could have been avoided.
Speaking at a funeral of Mundwa who died in an accident on Monday that involved Vimbai Tsvangirai, Chamisa said among the problems leading to the death of so many people in the country lies in the poor heath delivery system.
“The biggest problem that we are facing in the country is that some of the deaths that people face are caused by poor healthy deliveries. Hospitals are responsible for the deaths of so many people and that has to be solved. There are no medications in the hospitals. The country is on negative trajectory,” he said.
Chamisa also took a swipe at bad roads which are a major concern for horrendous accidents.
“The roads are also bad, but we want to thank the fact that we are there to solve all these issues,” he said.
Chamisa declared Mundwa a hero adding he died while he was he was in the service of the party.
“Tafadzwa is a hero because of his good experience in the party. He died while serving the party because he was coming from working with honorable Java. As a party, we have lost a hero and country we have lost a strong citizen,” he said.
Chamisa added: “As a party we have been given the duty to take care of the Mundwa family as they belong to the party.”
The accident occurred on Monday night and claimed the lives of two people while MDC Member of Parliament for Glen View South Vimbai Tsvangirai sustained serious injuries.
Tsvangirai’s family says she is currently in a stable condition.
