Mugabe is not giving up without a fight
Virtually abandoned and discarded by a bankrupt government she has worked for almost thirty years, my sister Zanele Ngwenya, fifty five, languishes in a dilapidated hospital ward after a bone-crunching automobile accident. To term the United Bulawayo Hospital [UBH] a ‘hospital’ is an overstatement. Almost thirty years under the clutches of a senseless, abusive dictatorship, Zimbabwe’s once fine medical system has turned into a hellhole. A ‘hospital’ with no blankets, no food, no drugs, blocked plumbing, and two solitary tungsten bulbs dangling from the cracked ceiling is a good setting for a horror movie.
