Villagers Vandalise Hospital Fence To Create Shorter Route

Villagers Vandalise Hospital Fence To Create Shorter Route

Villagers from Ward 2 in Mwenezi District, Masvingo Province, allegedly vandalised a security fence that was erected around Neshuro District Hospital in order to create a shorter route to the hospital.

Mwenezi East legislator Master Makope decried the development which happened on 11 December this year.

Speaking to TellZim News, Makope said the damage to the fence exposes patients and hospital staff to some dangers like intrusion. He said:

The fence was recently erected after a long time of no security at the hospital and we were happy with the development but now some locals are not to be happy about the whole issue and they vandalised the fence in protest since nothing was stolen.

We suspect they are villagers from Matande, Mashindi and Mangezi who have been using a shorter path to the hospital that was blocked by the new fence and they do not want to use the main gate.

When the fence was erected, it was reported that they complained saying their road had been blocked.

Since nothing was stolen we just assumed that it was that small section of the community who want a shorter way to the hospital.

Makopa said the shorter way passed through the waiting mother’s shelters as well as the maternity wards and this was not good. He said:

The path passes through the waiting mother’s shelters and at times they were robbed at night while domestic animals have free access to the quarters and are menacing the area.

The path also passes through the maternity wards and people would peep through the windows and see activities done inside so the area needs privacy.

Makopa said will engage the Chief, the local councillor and other relevant stakeholders to educate the community on the importance of having a secure fence around the hospital. | TellZim News

I think for security reason only one gate is necessary for easy management think of other institutions they have only 1 gate managed by security personnel

an institution like a clinic needs only 1 gate for easy security management and also to reduce the number of security personnel zvekuti mavillagers vanoda magadhe18 hazviite

It's not good to keep on multiplying gates at the hospital, and likewise it's not good to keep on subtracting gates along the fence. They should have repaired it and left it as it was, allowing people through. That way they could have avoided drama

If creating many gates at the hospital is bad, closing gates that already existed is also very bad
