MBABANE – The Coca-Cola Foundation International has promised to supply government with more equipment as part of a fruitful relationship.
The equipment is said to be expensive and comes in containers. Recently, the foundation donated equipment to the government estimated to be over E3 million.
During a brief visit yesterday at the government hospital to see how the equipment was being utilised, the Coca-Cola Foundation top official Fred Yochum assured the Minister of Health, Benedict Xaba, and his entourage which included other ministers, that they were sending more containers soon to benefit the hospital.
He said the equipment costs millions of Emalangeni and they were positive that the hospital and the ministry would make use of it effectively. “I am glad to find that the current equipment is being used well and is helping the Swazis here. Let me also acknowledge the relationship government has with us, this means we will go a long way in helping each other,” said Yochum. The minister was accompanied by ministers Jabulile Mashwama, Prince Sihlangusemphi, Princess Tsandzile and Wilson Ntshangase.
Mashwama also extended her gratitude to the Coca-Cola Foundation and said it was good to see it picking Swaziland to help and that it would go a long way in improving the healthcare in Swaziland. The entourage visited a few wards including the ICU before sitting for a briefing. Also present during the event was CONCO General Manager Manqoba Khumalo and outgoing GM Jose Neves.
