Health PS mum on mat­ter

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Min­istry of Health Prin­ci­pal Sec­re­tary (PS) Dr Si­mon Zwane has failed to come out with an ex­pla­na­tion on the fore­go­ing sit­u­a­tion in the pub­lic hos­pi­tals.

Ef­forts have been made to get him to state how gov­ern­ment hopes to avert the sit­u­a­tion as he was reached on his mo­bile phone, which first rang unan­swered. When he was fi­nally reached, he po­litely asked to be ex­cused as he said he was in a meet­ing and re­quested to be called later. The PS was un­able to an­swer calls for­warded to him later on con­cern­ing the is­sue. The Ob­server on Sat­ur­day later sent an SMS to Zwane who then re­sponded that; “Your ques­tions and con­cerns are ac­knowl­edged. Un­for­tu­nately, I am not in a good po­si­tion to re­spond to you at the mo­ment”.
