“I have visited Mzuzu, Kamuzu Central, Kasungu and Queen Elizabeth Central hospitals. It is worrisome to see people being given false hope. Patients are being told to wait for drugs when there are no drugs in hospitals”

This appears like a good and progressive initiative by one person, and must be commended unreservedly. However, doesn’t it just make you wonder, where in all this the government is?? Shouldn’t they lead the charge and be at the forefront?
