The Medical Superintendent at the Moyamba government hospital, Dr. Kwami O’nill, has denied allegation that his hospital staff, including himself, do not work on public holidays.

According to him, all staff of the hospital, including him, do not normally enjoy their holidays as do workers in other professions.

“In fact I performed some surgical operations both on Christmas day and Boxing Day (2013), and on New Year’s Day,” Dr. O’nill told this reporter. “I did not enjoy the holidays with my family just because I wanted to save lives.”

The medical staff at the Moyamba government hospital were accused of not working in the recent past holidays, an allegation the Medical Superintendent vehemently denied, insisting that he supervised his staff and the activities of the hospital throughout the festivities.
