FRANCISTOWN: The second city’s Assistant District Commissioner, Boyce Mangole, has condemned and falsified some components of the mayor’s speech, which addressed shortage of doctors at the Nyangabgwe Referral Hospital (NRH).

When giving a presentation on the Urban Development Committee, Mangole discredited some parts of the mayor’s speech, which spoke about deployment of 11 doctors in all the health facilities in the city. 

In her speech when opening the full council session on May 27, Francistown mayor, Sylvia Muzila said that the city has only 11 doctors for all the health facilities, which has led to experiencing a doctor patient ratio of 1:9,000, which is way beyond the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) recommended ratio of 1:600.
