Chipinge Pharmacy Busted For Selling Expired, Unregistered Drugs

Medicines Control Authority of Zimbabwe (MCAZ) closed Angel Pharmacy at Checheche Business Centre in Chipinge for selling more than 25 types of drugs which were either expired, unregistered or unrefridgerated.

The pharmacy was also shut down by the MCAZ for operating without a pharmacist. A local daily reported that in a report compiled by an inspector from MCAZ; Emmanuel Makotore and reviewed by Sly Mutyavaviri, an investigative inspection was carried out on October 21, 2018 after a tip off from a member of the public.

Some of the unregistered drugs included pyrimon eye drops, paracetamol Fresenius 10mg/ml, which was both expired and unregistered; atenonol 100 mg-an anti-hypertensive drug, which was unregistered, as well as typhoid fever vaccines which were unrefridgerated.

When contacted for comment, owner of the pharmacy Angeline Mahwire, who is also a pharmacist by profession, denied ever selling unregistered drugs.

She said the whole incident was exposed by her ex-boyfriend who was out to destroy her.
