ZANU PF Blames Western Powers For Shortage Of Doctors

ZANU PF Blames Western Powers For Shortage Of Doctors

The ruling ZANU PF party has blamed western countries for causing a brain drain in Zimbabwe’s health sector by luring the country’s medical practitioners with better salaries.

Speaking during a post-politburo media briefing on Saturday, ZANU PF spokesperson Christopher Mutsvangwa accused western countries of reaping where they did not sow. He said:

The Vice President talked about the brain drain again which is done by the western countries because they do not train their people.

Then when a crisis comes, they come to recruit from Zimbabwe because we are relatively poorer than them as we were enslaved and not as rich as they are. We trained people, they then come and snatch them.

They never want to compensate us for those people who take their money to train but they are now lured by better salaries because they have been neglectful of their responsibility to train their own personnel, so we are always at the receiving end of these people who always want to teach us about democracy and human rights.

Mutsvangwa said the government is working on ensuring that the living and working conditions of health workers are improved.

KKKK WHY DO ZANU PF'S OFFICIALS SPEAK AS IF THEY HAVE JUST COME BACK FROM THE MOON AND ARE STILL TO SYNCHRONISE.

DO THEY NEED AN INTERPRETOR TO INTERPRET TO THEM HOW THEY CAUSED THE BRAIN DRAIN NOT IN MEDICAL CIRCLES ONLY, BUT ACROSS THE WHOLE SPECTRUM.

THEY FAILED TO PAY DOCTORS ADEQUATELY AND WHEN DOCTORS LEGALLY WITHDREW THEIR LABOUR, THEY WERE UNJUSTLY HARASSED.

PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA POSTED HIS VICE PRESIDENT CONSTANTINO GUVHEYA CHIWENGA AS THE MINISTER OF HEALTH CARE. DOCTORS SAW VICE PRESIDENT CONSTANTINO GUVHEYA CHIWENGA AS ONE WHO HAD BEEN POSTED TO HARASS THEM.

DOCTORS HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO ESCAPE THE MAN THEY THOUGHT WOULD HARASS THEM. VICE PRESIDENT CONSTANTINO GUVHEYA CHIWENGA MANAGED TO STOP THE STRIKES, BUT HIS PRESENCE IN THE HEALTH SECTOR ACTED AS A CATALYST IN DRIVING DOCTORS TO GREENER PASTURES.

LET US BE SERIOUS, WHO WORKS FOR NOTHING UNDER THIS SCORCHING SUN ? NOONE. EVERYBODY WORKS TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE FOR HIS FAMILY.

GOVERNMENT MUST ADEQUATELY PAY ITS EMPLOYEES OR ELSE EVERYONE GOES. WE NOW HEAR THAT FIREFIGHTERS, TEACHERS, GARBAGE CLEANERS AND GRAVE DIGGERS HAVE JOINED THE DOCTORS AND NURSES TO SEEK GREENER PASTURES. VERY SOON WE WE ARE GOING TO HAVE GARBAGE EVERYWHERE AND NO GRAVE DIGGERS RESULTING IN MASS BURIALS.

ZANU PF MUST NOT HAVE A CULTURE OF BLAMING OTHERS WHERE IT IS CLEARLY WRONG. MAY I REMIND ZANU PF FOR NO PAYMENT AT ALL THAT THIS IS AN INDICATOR OF HOW BADLY THEY WILL FARE IN THE HARMONISED ELECTIONS IN 2023.

ZANU PF PULL UP SOCKS. HARMONISED ELECTIONS ARE ROUND CORNER. OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES ARE WATCHING YOUR DRAMA. THEY ARE FOLDING THEIR ARMS AND STANDING AT AKIMBO.

Ambassador Mutsva, you are correct with your statement with regards to training of doctors. As you are probably aware and you ought to be aware, doctors too have families to take care of, financial-wise to be precise. Just like any other employee you may think of, if the current employer can not pay the employee a salary which is commensurate with the services rendered, the decision to look for greener pastures rests with the affected employee - as opposed to the western powers you have chosen to put the blame on. In the same vein, nothing can stop a patriotic doctor to continue working here for "peanuts" even if the western powers offer such a doctor a hefty package. Unfortunately for us, most of our Zimbabwe trained doctors have chosen lucrative salaries abroad over patriotism for obvious reasons already alluded. Until we start paying our doctors better salaries and improved working conditions, the persistent brain drain of healthcare professionals will never come to an end.
