Knii Lante shares the reason that motivated to write 52 Ambulances.
As a doctor (and singer) , I guess I am often far removed from the sufferings “ordinary people” feel when they attend hospitals . When you add the hustle of how they manage to even get to the hospital then that is another matter.
I ( by virtue of being a doctor ) can walk into any hospital at any time and just by mentioning my name and profession I would probably be given some form of protocol treatment .
Two weeks ago I went jogging and met my friend Michael on the way . We got into a conversation and it was then that he alerted me that we had only 52 working ambulances in the National Ambulance service . Then my mind went back to the issue of the inadequacy of ambulances in our system.
I have tried since then to have a rough idea of government or state and para-statal V8 and luxury vehicles we have cruising around ( Not forgetting the saga of parked new Gallopers that are rotting away at one of our ministries ) . My mind also went back to the apology of hundreds of non-equipped “ambulances” we wasted money on importing a few years ago .
