ZRA official displaying the confiscated meat
ZRA official displaying the confiscated meat

The University Teaching Hospital -UTH – has dismissed a social media report that 200 boxes of meat donated to the institution last Friday were shared by managers.

The institution among several others benefited from meat products confiscated by the Zambia Revenue Authority -ZRA-from smugglers after a successful operation.

UTH Director Clinical Care and Diagnostic Services Alex Makupe said 39 boxes of meat, each weighing 20 kilograms were prepared for patients over the weekend leaving the institution with 161 boxes to be used in the next eleven days.

Dr. Makupe said the Women and New Born Hospital received five boxes of meat over the weekend, while the adult hospital took five and the college of nursing used one.

He said UTH will continue to work with cooperating partners for the benefit of its patients.

Dr Makupe was speaking shortly after journalists visited the cold room where the remaining boxes of meat are stored.

    • Why are you even giving disgusting fatty and salty processed meats to patients? Not to mention its questionable origin.

    • This is not a good idea giving untested food to people. How do you know this food was fit for human consumption? If someone wants to do you harm, don’t you think they can do just that…have you confiscate their food so they can harm people? This food should’ve been destroyed, or tested if you want to give it to people. Do that next time.

    • Buggers, the UTH has several laboratories to test all kinds of food. Do you honestly think learned people would not think of jeopadising the patients health by giving the compromised meat?

  1. Well done for refuting the accusations UTH ……..that is what this nation is bleeding for….show your innocence, not that ” bring evidence” marabish …

    Or ” he who accuses must provide proof”

  4. “Dr Makupe was speaking shortly after journalists visited the cold room where the remaining boxes of meat are stored.”

    Trib.als and fake news, unfortunately they, as usual, did not know when to stop so now no sensible person can believe what they say, even the rare occasions when they want to say the truth. We can’t believe Trib.al Hacks or trib.al upnd either. Especially Charles Kakoma, sometimes his lies escape through his rotten teeth before he even utters a word. As for Trib.al Hacks, even his trib.als now know that he is not a person to be trusted, a selfish trib.al yamene yamene.

  5. The boy Trib.al Hacks is in trouble now, who else is he going to cheat with a vice presidency? Chimbwili? No, he is not such a fo0l as GBV. So which bemba now? Maybe Nevers if he can be paid enough, but imagine ba Trib.al Hacks paying enough to a non-trib.al? Lusengo lwa mbwa.

  6. Now this fake news about UTH managers sharing meat donated for patients, are those managers from the trib.al party? Of course, if anyone can do that he must be a trib.al, what else?
