Nearly every sector is ailing and much of it is due to lack of resource funding largely from the fiscus yet the government continues to spend big on non-essentials such as expensive cars for ministers.
Addressing the Media in Harare, Bishop Magaya said, “the practice of living large in the midst of national debilitating poverty defies the comradeship Zimbabweans profess and as the church they will not hesitate to speak the mind of God to irresponsible conduct by political leaders”.
“The shortages of foreign currency has resulted in hospitals and pharmacies failing to access drugs for specialized medical conditions. People living with medical condition that need urgent and constant medical attention are at risk as they cannot access drugs” he added.
He pointed out that our leaders should desist from flying abroad seeking better medical service.
“Where is our conscience as a nation, where is our commitment as a Government? The rest of the citizenry have no access to competent medical services and drugs in government hospitals and clinics”. He went on to say this is all due to the poverty thrust on citizens by a lavish spending government.
Magaya also noted the sanctity of life is no longer a priority in the country and as a church, they will speak the mind of God to irresponsible conduct.
