Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya has rubbished reports suggesting that his ministry has mismanaged K1.3 billion COVID-19 funds.
Dr. Chilufya says the Ministry of Health has not received that kind of money and wondered how money that does not exist can be mismanaged.
He says the silence of the health sector should not be misunderstood for guilt.
Dr Chilufya has appealed to stakeholders to exercise restraint as certain sections of the media and social media peddle falsehoods.
Some newspapers have been working round the clock to discredit paint a gloomy picture of mismanagement at the Government Ministry of Health.
