Over 4,000 families in Nsanje District are failing to access health services following the temporary closure of Mbenje Clinic.
The clinic was closed on January 19 this year after it was damaged by floods.
Speaking to YFM Nsanje district commissioner Douglas Moffat said he has no idea when exactly time the clinic will stat working again because the disaster committee in the district is still discussing the issue.
“This problem has been coursed with two issues, first it is floods and second one is poor road due to damaging of bridges,” Moffat said.
He said on part of bridges they have reported to roads authority, and roads authority has identified a constructer and other part of the road has already done.
“On part of the clinic disaster committee which is working under heathy in the district they are still discussing the issue and they will come up with measures on how they will deal with the challenge,” Moffat said.
He said he has no idea when exactly time the clinic will stat working again but the council will work faster to restore services.
