The three leaders have a crisis on their hands in the Health industry where nurses are on a general strike.

Chiwenga yesterday issued a statement summarily dismissing all nurses who are on strike. The Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZINA) has however dismissed Chiwenga’s statement.

  1. Minister Parirenyatwa has a problem in his hands. Such issues needs a better informed AND well researched approach. Concluding that the strike is politically motivated is one such a dangerous situation. Is there any assuarrance that the problems facing the dismissed nurses will be solved by such an act of firing and engaging the new nurses. What if that firing is challenged and dismissed by the court after engaging the new ones. Are they going to be retrenched again. Was the communication relayed to the affected parties or not. Its better to do away with political suspects in labour related issues these are kids who a soft handling.

  2. Guys let us say they truly achieve their objective of dismissing the more than 15 thousand nurses how are they going to all of them. While we are aware that there is quite a number of nurses who are trained but unfortunately haven’t been employed can they realistically fill in all the vacant posts and have our hospitals and clinics running shortly. Also from a legal point of view is this stance permissible or it can be challenged in a court of law. I feel the move taken by our government is ill advised and irrational.

    1. What about the numerous years of experience? Will not be surprised if people die from wrong diagnosis, treatment et Al.

        1. are you saying all health institutions have doctors in zimbabwe. the real situation in zim is that most clinics are run by state registered nurses and or pcn.

  3. Nurses are very important and experience counts.First diagnosis even at hospital casualty is done by nurses.Doctors cornfirm and do further investigations.If a nurse is not worried about your diagnosis they are trained to treat and discharge.Some cases are not referred to doctors.Nurses are midwives at clinics and a few cases are referred to hospital.So please don’t undermine their role.It is a crisis not to have an experienced nurse on the ground.Actually Zimbabweans should protest to government like they did to remove Mugabe.We are tired of this dictatorship.Issues should be resolved.Who can live on two dollars a day.Most salaries are very low for one to live a decent life yet some have millions in the country.Please wake up and smell the coffee
