Harare – House of Assembly member for Glen View South Vimbai Tsvangirai Java visited  the Glen View Poly Clinic on Monday as part of her routine assessment of  the cholera situation on the ground where she takes note of progress (or lack thereof).

In September this year Glen View was declared the epicentre of the disease and an estimated 109 patients were admitted for screening at this clinic.

Officials at the clinic said there was a drastic improvement and decline in the number of cholera related cases stating that at least 20 suspected cholera cases were reported on Monday.

“Cholera cases were very low these days. We received very few cases of suspected cholera cases.

“We, however, got 20 cholera suspected cases today,” one of the nurses said.

Tsvangirai told nurses at the clinic that it was a good thing that the spread of the disease was lowering.

“In the past months I used to receive a lot of calls about cholera cases. It is a good thing to know that cases are declining and we will continue to fight together so we bring it to an end,” she said.

Officials at the clinic thanked the legislator and hailed her for her concern on issues to do with her constituency.

The legislator also visited Mwanawedu Centre in Glenview where volunteers are supporting orphans as well as many other disadvantaged children.
