  • Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye

Residents of rural Nyanga in Manicaland province will next weekend enjoy free medical clinics in their constituency from 15 doctors, courtesy of their Member of Parliament Zanu PF's Supa Mandiwanzira.

The annual clinics have been running for five years and Nyanga district medical officer, Dr. Addmore Jokwiro, says all residents should visit their nearest clinic in Nyanga for free medical attention.

The most common ailments in rural Nyanga include diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and malaria.

"We are asking all people in Nyanga with ailments to visit their local clinic to receive medical treatment and medications from doctors that will be available free of charge," said Dr Jokwiro.

The program is scheduled for August 27 and 28.

"We are encouraging all people even those who need operations to come to their nearest clinic in their area to ensure that they are booked for operations at Nyanga General Hospital to be performed later," said Dr Jokwiro.

The doctors and supporting staff will be drawn from all over the country and will be available at all clinics in Nyanga for that weekend.
