GWANDA- In a move that has left senior officers at Gwanda General Hospital in a quandary, Zanu PF has submitted 60 names of party youth for recruitment for an advertised nurses' training programme  that kicks off in May and September  2017 respectively.
Both intakes have a total of 15 places each and the hospital has hundreds of other applications made through general mail.
A source said the move effectively means that Zanu PF has taken over the recruitment process for the programme as no one is ready to stop the party from imposing its own youth. 
The names were allegedly submitted to the hospital on a Zanu PF letterhead by the Minister of State for Mat South Abedinico Ncube.
The Provincial Medical Superintendent, Dr Pugie Chimberengwa refused to comment on the matter when called by The Mirror.
"I am sorry, l will not discuss anything pertaining to this matter with the Press," he said before he hanged up.
Bekezela Maduma Fuzwayo, the secretary general of Gwanda Residents Association said he was aware of the matter and added that his organization was seized with the case.
Minister Ncube fumed when The Mirror contacted him for a comment.
"I simply requested them to assist a few and what is wrong with that. Next time don't call me, you are very silly. You journalists are good at mischief," he said.
Sources said that some senior officers at the hospital were now hesistant to conduct the due shortlisting process.
"Some decisions and processes should be left to professionals. Politicians should not be allowed to abuse power to this extent. So far we have received 60 applications with the Minister's recommendation and these are on Zanu PF letterhead. We however, only have 30 vacancies for both intakes and we dont know who or how to choose," said a nurse who declined to be named.
Another medical officer said there was dilemma at the hospital on how to proceed as the nurses are afraid of crossing the party's path.
"There is serious view that the party should do the shortlisting so that we don't burn our fingers by leaving out important names," said one hospital staff member who spoke on condition of story news
