UTH REFUTES SHARING MEAT MEANT FOR PATIENTS
The University Teaching hospital UTH has distanced itself from social media reports that its management has shared the meat that donated to the institution by the Zambia Revenue Authority.
On April 19, The Zambia Revenue Authority donated cooking oil and meat confiscated from smugglers to several institutions including UTH.
There have been reports circulating on social media that the meat that was donated to the institution was shared among management workers.
But UTH Director Clinical Care and Diagnostic Services Alex Makupe says the institution received 200 boxes of meat out of which 39 have been prepared for patients while 161 are remaining.
He says UTH has not touched the meat to give management but is making sure everything is given to patients who are the intended beneficiaries.
Dr Makupe says the institution is open to members of the public who may want to verify this with the hospital.
