Oshakati - The Consul General of Angola at Oshakati, Republic of Namibia, Pedro Walipi Calenga, suggested the need of the Health Ministry to analyse the situation of Angolans who are receiving medical aid in Namibia, with a view to reduce the costs of treatment in neighbouring country.
Pedro Walipi Calenga said so to the press while assessing 10-day visit to the Angolan community at the level of the five regions of the northern Namibia.
He said that the foreigners who are seeking health assistance in Namibia spent in medical treatment much more than the local citizens.
Consultations stand between 80 and 100 Rand and the hospitalisation cost USD 500 for Angolans, he said, adding that while the local national pays only 8 to15 rand.
The diplomat considered the situation hard for the border residents who are deprived of financial resources, urging the Health Ministry to analyse, along with the Namibian officials, the situation.
