A mortuary at Ntcheu district hospital is not functioning, a situation that has left some dead bodies decomposing.

It has been established that the mortuary developed a technical fault on December 20, last year.

Relatives are reportedly being forced to collect dead bodies for early burial.

Both Ntcheu district hospital administrator, McArthur Makata, and the hospital's publicist Stella Kawalala however dismissed the reports, saying the cold room is in good condition.

But when a Capital fm reporter visited the hospital, he found that the cold room fans were not functioning.

Meanwhile, people living around the hospital have already started complaining about bad smell coming out of the mortuary, due to the decomposing bodies.

The district is well known for its vegetable production like cabbages, tomatoes and Irish potatoes at Njolomole, Lizulu and Tsangano turn off.

Most of the people travelling between the two main cities of Lilongwe and Blantyre always make a stop over to purchase these products.

Apart from this main road of M1, Ntcheu district is also well connected with other districts on the Lake shore using Kasinje road (M5) to the Lake shore road going through Golomoti, Chipoka, Nkhota Kota and Nkhata bay districts.

Ntcheu  borders with the country of Mozambique..

The district covers an area of 3,424 km.² and has a population of 474,464 according to 2008 Malawi population Census.

Most of the occupants of Ntcheu District are of Ngoni origin, descendants of the Maseko of Swaziland's Amaswati people.

They are thus connected to the Ngoni of mzimba district in the northern part of Malawi
