A post on the ZHRO Zimbabwean HR Activists acebook page, “I have just been informed that top Zimbabwe government officials (Ministers, Permanent Secretaries and even higher) have converted a building / house in Mt. Pleasant into a new Hospital to treat only those few fat cat elites of the Corona Virus.
They rejected the Wilkins as Sub- Standard and lacking medical facilities to cater for VVIPs (if there is anything by that classification).
This hospital has also taken delivery of all the equipment donated by Mr. Jack Ma the founder of Alibaba who is helping all countries facing the fight against Covid 19 – Corona Virus pandemic. The equipment dished out in AU HQ in Ethiopia was meant to help all residents affected by this virus.
This act by the zanu pf government is the most selfish act ever, after years of ignoring our hospitals but buying vehicles for elections campaign, looting of state resources and other corrupt activities.
Doctors to treat these fat cats are being promised high payments and in USD yet ordinary people are dying without any treatment at all as no hospital in the country has any capacity at all.”
The elite hospital has been identified as the Rock Foundation and will only serve top government officials.
Harare Mayor Hebert Gomba ignited the speculation when wrote on his Facebook account; “I have just been to the former Rock Foundation Medical facility in Mt Pleasant.
I am still in my pyjamas and gown
I know the place well enough – it is in our municipal ward.
They advised that they are not open – not operating.
What they told me is very different from today’s body language of the place itself – that I know well enough and can state confidently.
There’s stuff happening in there!
The message of an exclusive medical facility for the politically-connected (or the elites) does not not sit well with ordinary citizens of Zimbabwe – especially at this point in time.
But private healthcare is private healthcare there is no need to be secretive about providing it.
That said, any life saved is a life saved and any new medical offering is a welcome addition to the unfolding crisis.”
These rumours have also got the attention of Advocate Thabani Mpofu whom reacted by saying he will lead the way to open the Hospital for the masses:
