Unpaid doctors and nurses “steal” patients’ rice donated by China

Doctors and nurses at Gwanda Provincial Hospital decided to share five tonnes of rice donated to patients by the Chinese through the Presidential Feeding Scheme programme.

The department of Social Welfare has reportedly ordered staff at the referral health centre to return the “stolen” rice so that it can be redistributed to patients who for a long time have relied on Sitshwala and cabbage while on admission. A nurse who spoke to NewZimbabwe.com on condition of anonymity said they were actually given the rice since they had not yet received their annual bonuses.
