    THE Swaziland Nurses Association (SNA) has given government a 14-day ultimatum to sort the drug shortage problem or they will stop work.
    This was contained in the petition that was delivered at the ministry of health yesterday. Minister of Health and Social Welfare Njabulo Mabuza received the petition. The petition alleged that government and the ministry seemed to be conveniently ignoring the fact that the right to health is a fundamental right without which the people of Swaziland cannot enjoy the right to life and decent living conditions.

    THE Minister of Health and Social Welfare Njabulo Mabuza has said members of the public should not panic as drugs have already been made and delivered.
    The minister was speaking during the march organised by the Swaziland Nurses Association (SNA) yesterday.
    When addressing a press conference at the ministry, the minister said his ministry regretted the irregularities that had been experienced in drug supplies for the last financial year.
    "We would like to reassure the public that orders for drugs have been made and delivery to various facilities is currently being done," said Mabuza.
