Insanely Corrupt Hospital In Zimbabwe Charges Women $5 For Each Scream During Childbirth



Corruption is reportedly so systemic in Zimbabwe, one of Africa’s poorest countries, that a local hospital charges pregnant women $5(N800) every time they scream while giving birth.

The new report from Transparency International on corruption around the world says the penalty was for “raising false alarm.” but clearly aimed at separating mothers from their money.

Women who can’t afford the high fees are sometimes detained at the hospital and charged interest until their family can pay up.
As a result, many Zimbabwean mothers give birth at home because they can’t afford the charges.

This is a country, according to United Nations reports, that on average, eight mothers die during childbirth every single day!






Unexpected work took me out of town. But all's good now. No too vex abeg. Won't happen like this again. Promise.
