Vice President Kembo Mohadi has vowed to take action to address the e-recruitment of student nurses case following public outcry over the centralisation of the process.
Speaking at a rally in Bulawayo, Mohadi said:
You will find that whenever there is a recruitment drive in the army or police, they have what they call a quota system where each and every province brings its own people. The recruitees are then chosen from every district so that the entire country is represented.
Government policy is that the recruitment must be done equitably. We don’t want bias in that regard. We are going to look into it so that it is rectified.
His remarks come as hospitals in Bulawayo, Masvingo, Midlands, Matabeleland South and Matabeleland North found themselves with an overwhelming number of students from Harare with some arguing that the process was manipulated.
Meanwhile, Health Minister, Obadiah Moyo said that the government has resolved that Provincial and central hospitals will now select applicants during the next intake in May 2020.
The development, however, does not scrap the e-recruitment process which was used in the previous recruitment process.
