The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) said it has unearthed rampant corruption in the recruitment and selection of trainee registered nurses.
ZACC spokesperson John Makamure revealed that an audit was carried out at five central hospitals and it exposed massive nepotism in the internal policies of a particular hospital. He said:
We carried out Systems Review exercises in five of the six central hospitals in Zimbabwe on the recruitment and selection of trainee registered nurses.
Our findings were quite alarming; there was rampant bribery for one to enrol as a trainee nurse.
Some authorities made brisk business on unsuspecting poor candidates.
One hospital has internal policies that benefit staff dependents while the public is cheated to apply and attend interviews.
