Drama As Chitungwiza Hospital Nurses In Demonstration, Angry Staff Demonstrate Against Boss Nepotism

Business was at a standstill at Chitungwiza Central Hospital, after nurses temporarily downed tools as they demonstrated against boss over alleged nepotism.


As reported by the H-Metro, the nurses took to the car park holding placards and beating drums alleging that the principal nursing officer, Miriam Mangeya, had turned the institution into her empire promotion or demotion was based on favoritism rather than skill.

Zimbabwe Nurses Association chairperson Kingstone Mutinzwa, confirmed that the extraordinary measures which had been taken by the nurses where as a result of simmering frustrations to their unaddressed concerns.

”Nurses are no longer safe to air their views because of the relatives and friends planted by the principal nursing officer, who feed negative information to her,” said Mutinzwa.

Mtinzwa claimed that efforts to engage Mangeya where not fruitful as she threatened to fire them instead.

”VaMangeya vanobva vati panoti Chitungwiza ndopanoti ini chero ukaendepi ivondavanosara, This has led the nurses to say enough is enough and stage a demonstration for voices to be heard.”

The paper also heard that Mangeya’s maiden surname is Muchakazi and her ‘two surnames’ dominated the team that benefited from a funded cholera vaccination programme.
Some of the general hands are from her church. We urging the ministry to investigate, do head counting and carry job evaluation and assess how Mangeya is administering the health institution,” he said.

Mangeya is on record admitting that she had relatives employed by the hospital but said she never had a hand in selecting people who went for the Cholera vaccination programme.
