“On June 1, 2020, a certain woman was involved in a road accident along Thyolo-Mulanje Road. Some people then just dropped her on the corridor of the Health Centre without informing staff and later, it was discovered that the woman died,” he explained, adding that this angered the suspects who started throwing stones at the health facility claiming health personnel failed to assist the victim.
