About eight hundred nurses who recently graduated will replace the ones who were fired in various health institutions.
Vice president Dr Guy Scott has told parliament that all the nurses who graduated will be employed in order to fill up the gaps created by government’s action to dismiss the nurses.
And the United Party for National development says only nurses who will approach the party will be assisted with court proceedings.
Over 250 health workers were dismissed by government for participating in the strike when demanding for a salary hike.

    The problem with these nurses is that they thought they were irreplaceable. I really feel pity for them and now they have to start looking into other simple careers like teaching. 🙂

    That was a lesson to all lazzy nurses who want huge sums of money and they are not even dedicated to their work,patients are all over the clinics pleading for help they are besy drinking coffee

    Nurses had very genuine reasons. I guess if your mum, dad ,sister,daughter , son ,uncle or aunt is a nurse you will agree with them.There is no way a Cleaner can get a higher salary than a qualified person.Even these uneducated opportunists calling themselves politicians can be furious if there pecks where less than us civil servants.Its only that the PF thinks Nurses were being incited by the opposition so they had to do what they did.But whether anyone likes it or not Nurses will bounce back for thier jobs..read my lips if you can..

    Stupid pf and Sata. Those nurses are also cowards. Instead of those who are employed going on strike in soliderity of the fired collegues,they are sleeping. Dictators are very weak,paralyse the health system and see this dictator having diarrhoea.

    Having worked in zambia for several years in the health sector, my heart bleeds when I hear that govt has fired critical health workers. Indeed nurses were wrong to have gone on strike which may have led to loss of lives. However, firing them is not a solution but worsening the situation. In rural areas clinics are run by unqualified personnel hence those 800 newly graduated nurses are suppose to be sent to such places n just discipline those by way of deducting days they didn’t work or put them on suspension for a few months as first offenders thereafter reinstate them with final warning letters. The gap left by these nurses will never be filled. They may suffer in the short term but with time n connections, the country may lose them to developed countries or neighbouring countries. Govt need to reflect on their earlier decisions.

    The moment nurses started courting HH in their strike, they were courting trouble for they politicized it, let him employ them.!!

  18. Piss off   December 8, 2013 at 8:23 am

    Work wil be tough they should hve sent them. To rural areas as punishments firing them aren’t a solution

  19. Concerned Citizen   December 8, 2013 at 10:04 am

    Firing them is the best solution.They thought they were untouchables.Claiming huge sums of money yet they never cared for the patients.All they could do was facebooking,shouting at patients,drinking coffee & sleeping on duty for the 9t shift workers.Let them find jobs that suits their needs.
