Seeking the shadow minister for health from the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

Mr Minister, 120 people have died from cholera in Zimbabwe in the period between February and August 2008. They were not beaten to death at some party base, but l would still call theirs death from political violence.

In February, l am told, Parirenyatwa Hospital stopped all surgical operations because the hospital had run out of theatre supplies. Now this and other hospitals in the country including Harare Central and Chitungwiza have stopped all admissions because there are no drugs and there is no staff. I already know that the present Minister has failed. If you are the alternative, what have you been doing about disaster that is our health delivery system? Do you have a plan for solving these problems, say in the first 100 days of office? How about letting us know some of those plans so that we know you are capable of solving this emergency? In the meantime, how about saying something about the needless loss of life as a result of cholera? How about visit Budiriro and Glen View and Glen Norah just so the people know whose side you are on? Or does the MDC only talk to the people at election time?
