Govt To Introduce Quota System For Nurses’ Recruitment

The Ministry of Health and Child Care (MoHCC) says it will soon introduce a quota system that will see a certain number of student nurses recruited and trained to serve in their own provinces and districts.

In 2019, MoHCC introduced an online nurses’ application forum after investigations by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) concluded there were unacceptable levels of bribery in the old system.

Prospective student nurses were allegedly made to part with large sums of cash by recruiters just to get into the interview process.

Speaking during a Question and Answer session in the National Assembly on Wednesday, Health and Child Care Deputy Minister Dr John Mangwiro said:

Now, we are going to decentralise the recruitment to provinces down to districts. Each province is going to be assigned its nurses recruitment and its quota system.

By quota system, it means we are decentralising to provinces and districts so that people select. At least every district must have a child.

Even if the places are 200, we will divide that 200 by our ten provinces and say 20 should come from Matabeleland North, 20 from Manicaland and so on. This is what I mean by the quota system.

This is what we are going to be doing in the future because we have seen all other systems are a bit unfair when it comes to nurses recruitment.
