Rip, these people when in power, fly out for medical care and neglects the health centres in the country, lack of maintenance, lack of proper equipment to work with, lack of staff training and poor working conditions, etc.
When you are sick in an emergency when u can't fly abroad, you settle for our miserable health centres. Oh, why African leaders, when will you use Ur sense to do the right things when u are in government?
