Former member of Parliament for Karonga Central Frank Tumpale Mwenefumbo has donated oxygen concentrator and other medical items to Karonga District hospital in the response to covid 19.
Akometsi understands that Mwenefumbo recently recovered from covid 19.
Speaking to this reporter if the donation is part of by-election campain in Karonga Central following the death of Conerious Mwalanda, Mwebefumbo said,
“I have not done this because of the pending elections in Karonga Central constituency, not at all. By the way the Karonga District hospital is situated outside Karonga Central constituency,” he said.
Mwenefumbo then urged Malawians of good will and those with capacity to assist to do so and reach out to other people.
Director of Health and Social Services at Karonga District hospital, Dr. David Sibale said the oxygen concentrator will help not only in response to covid 19, but also on other ailments.
Karonga has so far registered 73 confirmed cases of Covid-19 and 3 deaths.
