The Zimbabwe Health Workers Union has raised concerns about unethical practices within the Ministry of Health and Child Care. According to a letter dated May 16, 2023, addressed to the Acting Health Secretary, the general secretary of the union, L. Sarai, accused high-ranking officials of engaging in inappropriate behavior.
The union highlighted that certain department heads are taking advantage of their authority by attending workshops and assignments that are originally intended for junior employees.
These workshops often come with financial benefits, and instead of allowing the intended recipients to participate, the department heads seize these opportunities for their own gain.
In addition to this misconduct, the union also expressed dissatisfaction with the leaders’ lack of responsibility in sharing the knowledge gained from these workshops with other staff members. The norm is for the leaders to relay the information to their subordinates, but they have neglected this duty.
The union further revealed that in some extreme cases, directors have attended workshops that were specifically designed to benefit junior officers. Upon returning, these bosses then delegate the task of teaching others or disseminating the information to the junior officers, adding an unfair burden on them.
Most alarmingly, the union exposed instances where some bosses were exploiting work-related workshops to solicit sexual favors. This misuse of opportunities meant for learning and information sharing is deeply disturbing and requires immediate attention.
The union urged the Acting Health Secretary to investigate these matters and hold the responsible individuals accountable for their actions. However, attempts to gather a response from the Ministry of Health spokesperson, Donald Mujiri, were unsuccessful as he had not provided any comments.
Ruth Labode, the chairperson of parliament’s health committee, stated that she had not been informed of the grievances raised by health workers, indicating a lack of awareness within the committee regarding these issues.
