The masses groan every day for medical attention yet the doctors
are on strike, the medical facilities are not there but the money to fly abroad
and spend Dollars, Euros and Pounds are available. In the 70s and 80s that I
remember, the governments’ hospitals were adjudged the best-the universities
teaching hospitals were consolations when the states’ hospitals failed. But
check out today, what do you have? Private and quack hospitals are the order
siphoning the resources of very few people who can patronize them of their hard
earned money and sending many to early graves. Let us repent.
Let our leaders look back, let the wealthy look back; let us fund
our hospitals, let us patronize government hospitals. When our leaders fund them
and patronize them, they will see areas where there are needs for improvements
and before you know it; our hospitals will be safe for medical treatments.
