CCC Urges Govt To Deploy Ambulances At Tollgates

CCC Urges Govt To Deploy Ambulances At Tollgates

Mbizo MP, Settlement Chikwinya (CCC), has urged the government to hasten the deployment of ambulances at toll gates to ensure that accident victims are ferried to hospitals quickly.

In May last year, the World Health Organisation (WHO) donated 10 ambulances to the government for deployment to tollgates but the vehicles are nowhere to be seen.

In a statement, Chikwinya, who is the party’s transport and infrastructure parliamentary spokesperson, noted that victims of road traffic accidents continue to lose life with the government sitting on ambulances.

He urged Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, who is the Minister of Health and Childcare, to immediately release the ambulances so that they serve their purpose. Said Chikwinya:

Recently the Insurance Council of Zimbabwe donated four more ambulances for the same purposes as Zimbabwe intends to raise the figure of Ambulances to be stationed at toll gates to twenty but still, none of these has been deployed with no explanation from Chiwenga.

Ambulances at toll gates arrive much faster at accident scenes because they do not have to weave through the high traffic volume that characterises our city centres, especially during peak hours.

This service, if properly implemented, as per the recommendations of the World Health Organization will definitely save many lives and we call upon Hon Chiwenga the Minister of Health to immediately release the available Ambulances for work so that we minimise any further loss of life.

That's a very sensible idea. Fallen on deaf ears though. A close inspection on this argument means that the MP is trying to uncover the disappearance of ambulances donated for a better cause.

Where they are and why they are yet to be distributed??? Only chiwenga knows. Netuma private hospital twaako utwu twema elites don't be surprised kana twakaenda ikoko.

Are the accidents happening around toll gates? What's the logic behind this?

So ambulance pa Toll gate yemazowe road kana after mbudzi kana Mutoko road will get into Harare faster in the case of an accident??
Unless the ambulances are strictly for accidents on the highways and will not need to travel into the congested cities and towns otherwise its not making sense.
An ambulance that pick up accident victims in mazowe will have to travel into Harare where it's going to meet congestion, from mbudzi the ambulance may have to go to chitungwiza and still get into the congested streets there.

I would have proposed a flying machine, a chopper or drone if the problem is congested streets

Currently do we have a drone, chopper or flying machine 😆😆 you mentioned??
Lets make this simple. Which ambulance will arrive faster in Marondera.? The one in Goromonzi or the one at Harare hospital?
It not a matter of arriving only, there's also the matter of recieving medical attention from the ambulance personnel which could save lives.

Think outside the box man!!!

learn to read closey dude,he explained along highways that's where most fatal accidens occur ,no need to be congested frm town rushing for example Mutare highway,when the accident occurs btwn Hre and Marondera it's so convenient for an ambulance at Goromonzi tollgate , understood

Is there going to be a hospital along the highway because if the ambulance has to travel into any of the towns its going to drive through the congested streets.

We also have a lot of helicopters flying around. Why not make some of them into ambulances to be used in remote and inaccessible areas, and also during traffic peak hours in towns and cities? Harare Hospital had a helicopter landing place a few metres from the hospital.

Yaa it's a noble idea! The regime actually know this but they act neglinantly everytime e.g they know that the rtgs is not money but they wear deaf ears.

@Maparamuro 4 months ago

yes of course no hospitals along highways anyway ,bt once you get assistance 15 mins after an accident you may not loose too much blood rather than waiting for an ambulance in congestion frm harare , it's much better to wait in congestion while they are doing first aid ,understood @Maparamuro
