PATIENTS at Onandjokwe District Hospital in Oshikoto region are concerned about their welfare and the hygiene of the hospital as cockroaches crawl in their beds and food.

According to Maria Enkali who was hospitalised at the hospital, she had to boil water twice a day to get rid of the pests.

“I have been here for six days now and every morning and evening I have to have to pour boiling water between the bed railings to kill cockroaches. There are cockroaches everywhere in this room. When one complains to the nurses about them, they just go quiet and look at us,” said Enkali.
