Bulawayo council faces a shortage of ambulances.

Councillor Silas Chigora said an ambulance was required for each of the council’s 21 clinics, but the available ambulances were unable to meet demand. Bulawayo City Council is only left with a fleet of nine ambulances out of the required 21, compromising health delivery in the city, the latest council minutes have shown.

Councillor Frank Javangwe said council clinics were charging Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) $5 yet there was no medication.

Councillor Donaldson Mabutho was in support of the proposal by residents that each clinic is allocated an ambulance.“The RTGS$5 paid by the residents was a consultation fee and with adequate funding, the council would be able to provide medication,” Mabutho said.
