The Ministry of Health is aware that Tewane Clinic ambulance was boarded in November 2013 following an accident, and the ambulance has not yet been replaced, says the Assistant Minister of Health, Dr Alfred Madigele.

Answering a question in Parliament on December 9, Dr Madigele said Tewane Clinic was being served by an ambulance in the catchment area, which included Taupye and Shakwe Health Posts.

In cases of emergency, the facility was served by a programme vehicle from Mahalapye District Health Management Team (DHMT), he added, acknowledging that there were no immediate plans to replace the boarded vehicle.

MP for Mahalapye West, Mr Joseph Molefe had asked the Minister if he was aware that the Tewane Clinic situated 38km north of Mahalapye had been without an ambulance for the past months and if so what was the planned time frame or what contingency plans were in place to ensure that the clinic did not operate without an ambulance.
