"I went there immediately and sadly found it to be true.We cannot allow this to continue,we must restore the heart of the service,he tweeted.

"There are too many patients and the hospital is overwhelmed.Over the past two years we have repurpose beds,and recently we have repurposed 17 beds.This is not a situation that happened overnight".Mkabayi Said.

It is sad to see such a thing happening at our Hospitals.Radical intervention is needed.Our Women cannot suffer like this.
