Matebeleland residents have criticised the online recruitment process of 24 student nurses by Mpilo Central Hospital saying that it discriminated against them.
The applicants said that the online platform was ineffective as the majority of Matebeleland residents had no access to the internet.
Disappointed applicants wrote a letter to the medical institution saying that authorities need to investigate the matter. Part of the letter reads:
The national advertisement came out a few months ago and we failed to access the website and if you did, you couldn’t know where to pay the RTGS$10 application fee. Internet is not accessible and affordable especially to our rural peers in and outside our region, for example, where will one get internet connection in Lupane, Bulilima, Nkayi, Tsholotsho?
They claimed further that applicants from outside Matebeleland provinces were selected for the job after interviews were held secretly.
They called upon Health Ambassador First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa, provincial ministers of state, MPs, councillors, and all activists to demonstrate against corruption.
