Units such as the haemodialysis, imaging center and the laboratory couldnt function properly due to low voltage and the City Mayor told management that "anytime electricity misbehaves, the Generator will behave".

".. We have ENEO certainly but because of the low voltage, most machines cannot work right down to our photocopy machines. So you find out that services like the imaging center, haemodialysis center and the Laboratory cannot run if the voltage is not up to capacity. In the past, we have had machines in the dialysis broken down because of low voltage. We have been living in fear with just this one generator because if it breaks and has to go on repairs then we might loose some patients. We are most grateful today for this reception. We sincerely thank the management board who thought it wise that our plea was worth the salt and channeled it to the right quarters. Once one works in the night, the other will work during the day.
