The National Women’s Organizer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Dr. Hanna Bisiw has defended her call for Ghanaian men to reject plans for the delivery of blood and other medical supplies using drones.
Dr. Bisiw, speaking at a party event in Asamankese over the weekend, sparked controversy when she argued that the remote-controlled drones will invade the privacy of women who take their bath in open spaces.
Late last year, the government contracted the services of Zipline to supply and operate the medical drones at a cost of $12 million in a bid to address emergency health situations.
The drones will deliver blood and other critical medical supplies to inaccessible areas in the country.
Parliament eventually passed the services agreementbetween Fly Zipline and government by a vote of 102-58 amidst heavy criticisms that the move was a misplaced priority.
But months after the deal was signed, Hanna Bisiw in a Citi News interview insists that the drones will take naked pictures of their wives as they fly over their roofless bathhouses and advocated for a return to the use of vans procured by the erstwhile Mahama government for that purpose.
