Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) leader Edith Nawakwi has charged that the entire ministry of health should be charged for systemic genocide for failing to procure enough BCG drugs a vaccination for newly born babies.

Ms Nawakwi has told Qfm news that it is unacceptable for the ministry of health to completely run out of such an important vaccine.

Ms. Nawakwi says there is need for government to get serious and ensure the medical stores has enough stocks of drugs at all times.

Ms Nawakwi explains that waiting until the drugs are finished is not right because the procedure for procurement takes long which may put many lives at risk.

The FDD leader has since demanded that the minister of health and his staff be fired for failing to procure enough BCG vaccines, Anti Retro-viral therapy drugs and Tuberculosis drugs.
