By A Correspondent- The Minister of State for Bulawayo Provincial Affairs Judith Ncube said she will engage those responsible for the recruitment of student nurses in Bulawayo following an outcry over last week’s “unfair” recruitment.

Ncube made the remarks on Tuesday after her office was inundated by unsuccessful applicants who were seeking clarification on how the process was done.

Said Ncube:

I have been busy attending to more than five delegations who flocked my office this morning seeking answers on what really transpired in the selection of student nurses. Indeed, it’s a serious public concern that should be addressed as a matter of urgency.

Mpilo Central Hospital in Bulawayo recruited 24 trainee nurses with only 4 being locals while the rest were from Harare, Mashonaland East and Mashonaland Central.

United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) reportedly recruited only 4 students from Matabeleland while 23 were from outside the province.
