Chiredzi residents have written to the superintendent of Chiredzi General Hospital, the President’s Office, the Ministry of Health and Child Care among others threatening to demonstrate over the conduct of the nurses at the hospital. The residents allege that the nurses spend most of their working engaged on social media, particularly Whatsapp, and not paying attention to payments. Part of the letter written by the United Chiredzi Residents and Ratepayers Association (UCHIRRA) reads,
We write to your office expressing great displeasure over the conduct and attitude of your staff towards patients (residents) seeking medical attention at Chiredzi General Hospital. Our office has received numerous unpleasant complaints of negligence of duty by your staff due to cell phone use (WhatsApp) during working hours while ignoring patients requiring urgent medical attention…the worst report at the hospital was from the maternity ward where negligence is said to be rife, leading to loss of lives during childbirth.
