Government warns politicians who randomly visit patients in hospitals. In a statement yesterday, the Ministry of Health and Child Care said Section 57 of Zimbabwe’s Constitution provides the right to privacy.

Government has warned politicians, activists and media practitioners against random visits to hospitals citing that it’s a violation of the patient’s right.

“There has been a recent increase in the number of political actors, activists and the media making unauthorised visits to hospitals under different guises and pretexts,” noted the ministry in the statement.

“These inv

asions of patients’ privacy are unwarranted and are unacceptable. The Ministry called those intending to visit patients in hospitals to adhere to stipulated visiting times and not use the hospital as venues for making thinly veiled political statements.

“Hospitals need to get authorisation from each and every patient before allowing strangers to have access to patients and their medical information. Hospitals are not and should not be used as a venue for rallies.”
