Story by Tafara Chikumira

GOVERNMENT has distributed staff buses to Kwekwe and Gweru Provincial hospitals in the Midlands province in a move meant to ease transport challenges for staff members.

The buses unveiled at the two hospitals add on to the fleet from the Public Service Commission as government continues to capacitate civil servants.

The move is expected to boost morale in line with their demanding shifts as explained by Midlands Provincial Medical Director Dr Mary Muchekeza.

“As a province, we are very excited by this gesture from government. One thing that is critical for any leader is to work with a motivated staff and I hope this move will help in the staff’s execution of their duties,” she said.

Gweru Provincial Hospital Acting Superintendent Dr Johannes Mukwembi expressed gratitude to government for attending to the hospital’s needs.

“I want to thank government for prioritising our plight. As a hospital, we are very grateful for getting our needs being attended to in a clear indication that we are being remembered,” he noted.

“It is a huge thing for our employees. They sometimes used to come to work late we all know the language of touts is not that friendly. We are happy they can now do their work without hustles, Kwekwe Hospital Superintendent Dr Patricia Mapanda said.

Government through Midlands Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution Honourable Owen Ncube stressed the importance of improving conditions of service for its employees, “A healthy and productive workforce is the basis upon which modernization and industrialization of our economy is anchored. As government, our commitment to the development of the health sector is steadfast and deserves appreciation by all stakeholders.”

Since the inception of the Second Republic, the country’s health sector has improved with new clinics being constructed through devolution funds, while new equipment and solar systems have been installed.
