The unveiling of the first step of rebuilding the oldest hospital in the country is expected to take place after it was deferred a week before. The hospital was demolished earlier this year on grounds that it was obsolete and short of accommodating today’s health required facilities and services.
Tumisang Mokoai, the health ministry’s Public Relations Manager explained that the re-construction project is a multi-million project which is expected to benefit at least 400 000 people in Maseru and other districts.
After the hospital was earmarked for demolition in 2017 patients’ services were transferred to Carewell at Lakeside.
The new look hospital will be bankrolled by the Lesotho government and the Chinese government which has pledged M800 million in 2017 for the facility that will now incorporate special eye clinic.
