The Kweneng District Health Management Team (DHMT) is worried about the outbreak of malaria in the area, which has kept its officers on their toes.

Already the regional DHMT has recorded 11 cases of malaria at Kubung (six), Molepolole (two), Khudumelapye (one) while two were registered in Takatokwane.

When The Monitor visited Molepolole on Friday, health officials from the district were going around the village sensitising residents on the importance of cleaning their yards to avoid contracting malaria. The DHMT team went around the village using loudspeakers to inform the public that they are already registering malaria cases in the area. As a result, they implored the residents to join hands to fight transmission of the disease. The public was urged to cut the grass or bush area near them.
