    Vote-of-no-confidence on National Blood Service board


    HARARE – A petition signed by blood has been written to the chairman of the National Blood Service Zimbabwe (NBSZ), Retired Justice Smith calling for an extra-ordinary meeting at which one of the agenda items is to pass a vote-of-no-confidence on the board of the organisation.
    The petition was written to the Retired Smith, NBSZ chief executive officer, Lucy Marowa, the Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr David Parirenyatwa and the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Dr Gerald Gwinji and it was copied to Rodgers Matsikidze, a lawyer and a blood donor.
    The petition, a copy of which is in the hands of The Mirror said the AGM was being called in terms of the organisation's constitution and the request was for the meeting to be held on November 24, 2017.
    In addition to passing a vote-of-no-confidence to the board, the petition also proposed to table a motion to turn NBSZ which is a private organisation into an authority under the Ministry of Health and Child Care and to trim the current board from .15 to 7. There is also a proposal to discuss governance issues.
    There is also a proposal to come up with a new board of eight members and to discuss the low levels of blood and the high price of the commodity.
