GWANDA – The Department of Social Welfare is accusing staff at Gwanda Provincial Hospital of looting 5 tonnes of rice donated by President Mugabe for the good of admitted patients.
Social Service Department Provincial Head for Mat South Totamirepi Tirivavi told The Mirror in an interview that hospital staff looted the rice and he was calling on all those who received allocations to return whatever they got back to the hospital.
He said that the hospital was given a total of 8,33 tonnes of  rice.
"Some 8,33 t of rice were donated to Gwanda Provincial Hospital by China through the Presidential feeding scheme programme. The rice was meant to feed the patients in the referral hospital. Instead we received a report that 5 tonnes of that rice was shared amongst doctors and nurses at the hospital," he said.
The Provincial Medical Director, Tugie Chimberengwa could not be reached for comment as his phone was unreachable.
The Minister of State for Provincial Affairs Abednego Ncube said the rice was meant to give relief to patients who were fed on a menu of sadza and cabbages every day.
He however, said he would only give a detailed comment after receiving full details on the matter.
One nurse who spoke to The Mirror on conditions of anonymity said, "Sometime before Christmas there was a notice that stated that we were supposed to collect a bucket of rice each. According to the notice all staff members were to benefit except for student nurses. We actually thought it was a gesture from Government only to be told now to pay back the rice that we took."
