“With regards to the clinic the Minister of Health and Child Care Obadiah Moyo has promised Dr Prosper Chonzi (Health Services director) that all machines and medicines will be provided. Dr Chonzi you should come and report if you are not given,” he said.
President Mnangagwa said the concept will receive full Government support.
“Takuti chinhu chakanaka ichi tichamhanya mberi kunyanya kuchitsigira nekuti chinobatsira mhuri irimuno.”
