    Nurses Lose Hope In VP Chiwenga

    By Newsreport.co.zw | Published: 28 May 2022

    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.
