    Ministry of Health investigates Bikita Nurse in Charge


    CHIREDZI – The Ministry of Health and Child Care has sent a team to Bikita Rural Hospital to investigate an incident in which Nurse-In-Charge Sencia Matimba is accused of assaulting fellow nurse Edina Muzondiona on May 22, 2019.
    Masvingo Provincial Medical Director Amadeus Shamhu confirmed the development. He said that his office is still waiting for a report from the team that visited the hospital.
    “As a ministry we are still seized with the matter and we are currently waiting for minutes from a team that investigated the issue,” said Shamhu.
    However, Muzondiona alleged that there are concerted efforts by certain named senior health officials in the district to sweep the case under the carpet. She said that some of the officials went to the extent of visiting her mother in the rural areas in a bid to convince her to withdraw the case against Matimba.
    Sister Matimba who is the widow of former Zanu PF MP for Bikita East Kenneth Matimba is an influential person in the district.
    “X from the district offices with the help of Y from Chikuku visited my mum at our rural home several times telling her to convince me to withdraw the case against Matimba. This is quite shocking as the trio is also communicating with Police to do the same,” said Muzondiona.
