Nurses Lose Hope In VP Chiwenga

Nurses Lose Hope In VP Chiwenga

Nurses have lost all hope in Health and Childcare Minister Vice President Constantino Chiwenga improving their conditions of service.

Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZINA) president Enock Dongo on Friday told NewsDay that the situation in the country’s public health system has worsened since Chiwenga took over the health portfolio. Said Dongo:

The nurses were also saying when Chiwenga came in, they had a lot of hope and trust that the health delivery system was going to improve.

However, nothing has improved. Rather there is deterioration and they have lost whatever they had gained. Right now nurses are the worst paid as compared to other civil servants.

They (nurses) said they are no longer safe and free to express themselves including the managers and provincial medical directors who were also complaining that they don’t have any access to the ministry management so that they present the challenges faced by health workers.

This has made things very worse. So what it means is that people have lost hope and that is why there is a rampant brain drain across the country.

The Government is also working on passing a law, the Health Service Amendment Bill, that will make it difficult for healthcare workers to go on strike.

Healthcare system changed for the worst since the arrival of General Chiwenga. Doctors and nurses migrated in droves for greener pastures overseas. There are no longer drugs in their hospital pharmacies. Those who remained discuss work related issues behind doors. They look gloomy when attending to patients. To tell it as it should be told, General Chiwenga has intimidated healthcare workers, not by his word of mouth or action, but by the knowledge that he came from the army where command is the norm. Doctors and nurses assume that everything coming from him is a command !!!!! The general was posted there to instill discipline and order so that Doctors and Nurses stop work stoppages. He managed to stop strikes, but service delivery delapidated to the lowest ebb.

Aiwa, Retired Dr. General Chiwenga is qualified to lead Health Sector. Akarwara zvekuda kufa akararama. So having cheated death he is eminently qualified to head Ministry of Health.

Just like his boss who was fired for incompetence and returned in triumph to lead Zimbabwe.

P.S. The incompetence of both is very clear to see now, 4½ years since the coup
